Octavo, full bound leather binding with red and gilt stamping. First Edition, 1st Printing of J. Tolkien’s Masterpiece, The Hobbit or There and Back Again, beautifully illustrated Collector’s Edition. Presenting in its original slipcase. When Tolkien’s revolutionary’The Hobbit’ arrived on bookshelves in 1937, it redefined fantasy and introduced the genre to a new audience. Some consider it to have been the Harry Potter of the time. With the success of the first printing, the publishers decided to incur the costs of printing color illustrations in the second printing which Tolkien produced himself. The text of the first edition was also changed by the second edition to align with the story of The Lord of the Rings, soon to be published. The popularity was so great that his publisher requested a new series and thus The Lord of the Rings came about. Book binding tight and square with clean, unmarked original full bound feaux leather boards and slipcase. Internally clean, bright and unmarked with crisp text.
