Synopsis
J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum. Written for J.R.R. Tolkien's own children, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies worldwide and established itself as a modern classic.

J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy featuring cover art by Caldecott Honor winning children's book illustrator Peter Sís, this edition of The Hobbit has been specially formatted for young readers. Larger print size and wider margins provide reading ease for the youngest Tolkien fans. This quality digest edition also includes interior maps and original interior illustrations by J.R.R. Tolkien. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

J.R.R. Tolkien's own description for the original edition: If you care for journeys there and back, out of the comfortable Western world, over the edge of the Wild, and home again, and can take an interest in a humble hero (blessed with a little wisdom and a little courage and considerable good luck), here is a record of such a journey and such a traveler. The period is the ancient time between the age of Faerie and the dominion of men, when the famous forest of Mirkwood was still standing, and the mountains were full of danger. In following the path of this humble adventurer, you will learn by the way (as he did) -- if you do not already know all about these things -- much about trolls, goblins, dwarves, and elves, and get some glimpses into the history and politics of a neglected but important period. For Mr. Bilbo Baggins visited various notable persons; conversed with the dragon , Smaug the Magnificent; and was present, rather unwillingly, at the Battle of the Five Armies. This is all the more remarkable, since he was a hobbit. Hobbits have hitherto been passed over in history and legend, perhaps because they as a rule preferred comfort to excitement. But this account, based on his personal memoirs, of the one exciting year in the otherwise quiet life of Mr. Baggins will give you a fair idea of the estimable people now (it is said) becoming rather rare. They do not like noise.

Whisked away from his comfortable, unambitious life in his hobbit-hole by a wizard and a company of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of a large and very dangerous dragon. Illustrations.

Store Categories

Every item that we sell is in our inventory and ready to ship. We are not a ‘Brokerage House’, which takes an order, then scampers around looking for the item to fill that order. This helps us to ship our items in a timely manner, which our buyers appreciate (just look at our Feedback!). With some books, we receive so many messages asking for a book’s particulars—which have been pre-answered in the book’s listing—that we can’t answer the messages. With that said, if a listing doesn’t say 1st Edition, then it isn’t a 1st Edition. Not every publisher puts the term ‘First Edition’ on the copyright page of a First Edition. First Editions are also known by the price on the dust jacket, and/or the number line found on the copyright page. This info can easily be corroborated by logging into Amazon.com and viewing a book’s copyright page (if Amazon.com doesn’t have said info, that is not our fault). The (supposed) delivery times that eBay is placing with purchases are only approximations. Delivery times will vary due to where the item is shipping from and, where the item is headed. Please understand, the estimations for delivery time(s) are eBay’s doing, not ours. Please don’t message us, asking if a particular book has a remainder mark: if it does, this will be noted. The amount of messages--concerning this point--makes answering all of them impossible. We try to be very careful and thorough when we list our books. We list our books using eBay’s catalog (which contains about 75% of what we sell). EBay’s catalog listings don’t allow entering info such as: if a book is a Book Club Edition [BCE] or, an ex-library book [XLB]—which can contain stamps (in the book, on the top/bottom of the pages), stickers, a pocket, glue spots, tape on the boards, writing within, etc.; If a book is a First Edition, is signed, has illustrations, etc., that will be listed; if a DJ is price-clipped, that will be listed; if the book is not a first printing, that will be listed or shown through a scan of the Copyright Page. If there are issue(s) with the cover/DJ, we will show scans of said issue(s). Sometimes—luckily, not often—the eBay catalog isn’t the most helpful when putting items on for sale. In those instances, what is in said catalog isn’t an exact fit for the book being sold (i.e., the ISBN comes up as a Hardcover when in actuality it’s for a Trade Paperback, or, vice versa; the cover which appears with the ISBN isn’t the actual cover of the book; etc.). When that happens, we will note the disparity (usually as an ad-in description). Book Conditions are my estimation, as a twenty–year buyer/seller. Yours might differ. If you are unhappy with a book you have received, please send us a message, and we’ll work together to remedy the situation. We have had many people ask why we require purchase(s) to be paid for immediately. This is solely because, if we allow people to not pay immediately, we wind up with several unpaid items every week. This consequently removes said item from circulation, for ten days (five days to wait for payment, then five days for eBay to try and get the fraudulent buyer to pay). After ten days, we can then re-list said unpaid-for item. We’re just a small, sole-proprietor-ship, and can’t let our inventory sit unsold for that long. With that said, if you would like to purchase several items at once, drop us a message, and we can list you as someone who doesn’t fall under this caution. Returns are an aspect of doing retail business. We realize this, and further state that we are simple human beings, who are prone to make mistakes. If we make a mistake, we have a 100% return policy. If this happens, and it is our fault, we will refund your money to you once we receive the item back. We will refund your postal expense to ship the item back to us, once we receive the item back. What we will not do is send a pre-paid envelope to you to cover the return postage or, issue a refund before we receive the problem item back. The reasons for this are simple: 1), our items are priced such that we make a fraction of what the buyer’s expense is and to send an envelope with a pre-paid envelope inside means that we have now expended more than the item is worth; and, 2), most times we never receive the item, which should be returned. This is an unwavering policy for us. If this is not something you—the buyer—are comfortable with, please feel free to shop elsewhere. Sorry for the extended boiler-plate. A handful of problem buyers has made the above a necessity. Robert Lamb Lycanthrope Sales
