THE HOBBIT 

BY

J.R.R.TOLKIEN 

 C.1954

Book Description: Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1954. Original Cloth. J.R.R. Tolkien (illustrator). 2nd Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. A fantastic copy of a very early printing of The Hobbit. The 1954, 6th overall printing, or the 2nd printing of the 2nd Edition (1951). A Very Good/very Good+ copy in a Good+/Good++ Dust Jacket, designed by Tolkien, featuring his Mountains & Dragon design, as found on the original UK Editions. Stated 6th impression on front flap,noted as printed in Great Britain. This copy has been collated with the authoritative article by Steven M. Frisby, Identifying First and Second Edition Printings of the Houghton Mifflin Hobbit, published in The Tolkien Collector, no. 30 (October 2009), and matches the description for a 6th impression. One of probably only 1000 imported from Allen & Unwin, lacking the printing history on title verso, to help them circumvent the import restrictions and US copyright laws. The text block is clean and bright, bound in the light blue/green colored original cloth from the publisher. Shows just a little shelf wear, some light soiling to the front and rear covers, corners mildy bumped still retaining some sharpness, spine tight with all pages fanning easily, some age toning to page edges, finger smudge to a page or two, head and heel of spine mildly bumped. Features the title, dwarves hat, author, and publisher stamped on the spine in blue. Front boards have "The Hobbit" stamped in blue as well. Contains the full color frontispiece "The Hill: Hobbiton-across-the Water", as well as the original line drawings by Tolkien. The maps are in excellent condition with front map having a -American Merchant Marine library stamp (see pics) and one and one along page top edge otherwise "No Other Markings", red and black ink still show clear and bright against the unfoxed end papers. No previous owners name nor any other hand writing noted. The dust jacket has some chipping to the folds at the flaps and to the extremities with some paper loss to the head of the spine and to the rear/front top of cover (see pics please). Overall a beautiful copy, scarce in original dust jacket worthy of any collector's book shelf. A great Christmas present and a great investment for the future.

 All sales are "FINAL" so please read the description. view the pics, and all all questions PRIOR to bidding! 

 Thank you!
