The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Published by Allen and Unwn in 1961.


A beautiful copy of a very collectable book.

This is a 2nd Edition, Twelfth impression overall, published in 1961, in its original and correct non price clipped Twelfth impression dustjacket.

The book is in Very Good Plus condition.
The only faults are a bit of fading to the top edges of the boards, and a bit of fading to the spine thru the light areas of the dustjacket. One spot to the front board, just above the dragon.
The spine of the dustjacket is tanned and a bit of tanning or soiling to the front panel at the flap fold area. The edges of the dustjacket have a bit of rubbing, with a very small amount of associated loss at the tips of the fold areas.
One small closed tear to the top edge near the spine on the front panel.
No foxing to be found in the textblock, still clean and bight.
A slight spine lean to the book.
No previous owner's name or any other writing in the book.

The books cover is clean, bright, with one spot or blemish just above the dragon on the front.
No bumps or bruises to the corners, with a light bit of pushing to the spine ends, but no wear or fraying whatsoever.

An early collectable copy that shows beautifully with the very nice dustjacket.
