The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Published by Allen & Unwin in 1963.
A beautiful copy of a very collectable book.


This is the Fourteenth impression (overall) published in 1963, in a correct Fourteenth impression dustjacket that does not appear to be original to this book, due to fading of the book, and not the dustjacket.
The book and dustjacket are both in Very Good Plus condition with minor loss at a couple of areas. The faults are the tanning to the white portions of the spine, and a small tear with some loss to the front of the dustjacket at the top of the spine fold area.
The maps show no foxing, clean and bright. The dustjacket is lightly soiled, not price clipped, with some minor edgewear and rubbing noted. The books cover shows no soiling, with a considerable amount of fading.
The corners are not bumped, and show no wear or fraying whatsoever.
No previous owners name or any writing noted.

A wonderful collectable copy. 

Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
