The Hobbit.
London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd., 1937 - Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in green morocco, titles and decoration to spine, raised bands, single rule to boards, edges gilt. With an elaborate onlay to both the front and back boards. The occasional spotting to pages, an excellent copy in a fine binding. With 13 illustrations by J. R. R. Tolkien including the endpapers of maps and scenes from the book, of which 4 are in colour. Both onlays are in full colour, on the front the onlay imitates the scene of the frontispiece, Hobbiton-across-the-Water. On the back Bilbo floats on his barrel towards the huts of the Raft elves. First edition, first printing. A beautifully bound copy of this high spot of children's literature.
