> Enquire about this book
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
This is the first fully illustrated Deluxe Edition with the original text of the classic.
The illustrations and cinematic sequence drawings are based on the animated film by Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass.


The book shows some rubbing to corners and spine ends of the illustrated covers, and the dustjacket show some rubbing and minor areas of color loss.
The dustjacket is complete, but has been repaired with clear (hopefully archival?) tape.
Part of the front flap appears to have been torn off, and repaired with the tape.
Very nicely done, considering the large area torn. The dustjacket is of clear mylar with a colorful illustration of Smaug swooping down on the Dwarves and Bilbo on the front boards, and Smaug resting on his mound of treasure on the rear boards.
It also shows some minor rubbing and slight loss to some of the color illustrations on it.
No marks or writing, names or inscriptions noted.
The book is in Very Good Plus condition, with over 230 full color illustrations.
The black front free endpaper has been folded over, leaving a white stripe down the page, see photo.
The binding is still tight and holding together rather well, for this oversized edition.

This full-fledged picture book version, contains the full text of The Hobbit, and will be loved by young and old alike.

Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
