Farmer Giles of Ham, The Rise and Wonderful Adventures of Farmer Giles, Lord of Tame, Count of Worminghall and King of the Little Kingdom, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The covers are clean with a moisture mark to the front lower board reaching the lower spine area. The corners are a little bruised with a minor amount of wrinkling and color loss to the dustjacket. The book has a tight binding, with no names or writing, no foxing or offsetting noted. Some light fading to the spine of the dustjacket, with original dustjacket being price clipped to both front and rear flap. Very Good Plus/Near Fine condition, showing a little edgewear, mainly to the top of the spine. The blue and orange colors are bright and clean, no spots or soiling. Textblock is clean and tight, without any foxing, no names or writing, other than the illustrator's signature to the title page. Features two color plates by Pauline Baynes, as well as being illustrated on almost every page with her line drawings. Highly collectable in this signed state, this is a lovely copy for any Tolkien fans collection. Housed in a custom leather slipcase, featuring Tolkien's line drawing of Chrysophylax, gilt stamped to front and the JRRT Monogram to the rear. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
