The Hobbit

by Tolkien, J.R.R. (1946)

Description: First Edition. First Edition, 4th printing. This 1946 printing retains the original story line of "Riddles in the Dark," which portrays Gollum as decidedly more agreeable: "We must fetch it, preciouss, and give it the present we promised." Edgeworn with small pencil and pen markings on endpapers and occasional penciling on interior pages. The binding is solid and hinges are intact. Pages are bright. Lacks dust jacket. This is a very nice copy of this increasingly rare edition of what is likely the most seminal work in fantasy fiction. . Published by George Allen & Unwin Ltd 1946 Good Condition.
