The Hobbit or There and Back Again. Published by Allen & Unwin, a UK 1st Edition, 2nd impression was published in 1937, the same year as the original 1st impression. The exterior of this copy is moderately soiled, whereas the interior is clean and bright, with only scattered spots of foxing or minor spots & fingerprints. Decorative map endpapers are in excellent condition, clean, with some darkening to the free endpaper side, a small previous owners name on the first blank page. Has the 4 color and 9 mono plates, with the Smaug illustration showing signs of having been loose and glued back in. The edges of the Smaug illustration are rough, and the gutter is yellowed from the glue, a small tear to the bottom mounting edge, but none of this intrudes on the color illustration, with the other illustrations clean and bright with no tears or faults. This second impression is important for the addition of the 4 color illustrations by the author. This is the 1st, and only early UK Edition that was published with the four Tolkien color illustrations. One of only 1877 copies of the original 2300 that survived the bombing of London in November 1940. This well loved copy shows soiling to the covers, some loss to the cloth at the top and the bottom of the spine, along with a slight spine lean. The exterior also has minor bumps to a couple of the corners, along with some shelfwear to the edges, but in very good condition overall. The text block is clean and bright, binding still tight. Features Tolkien's orignal 'Mountains and Dragon' design stamped in blue on the boards and spine. A beautiful copy, furnished with a facsimile of the original 2nd impression UK Dustjacket.

Descrizione: George Allen and Unwin, 1937. Hardcover. Condizione: Very Good. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good. Author (illustratore). 1st Edition. George Allen & Unwin. Perhaps the most unique offering to Tolkien book collectors ever: 2nd-10th impressions of The Hobbit, all with original matching jackets. It took more than ten years of painstaking effort to collect them all.From time to time the individual impressions come up for sale with jackets, but even later impressions are not with the original unrestored jackets. None of these jackets have any restoration and remain in the charming original state. It¿s not always understood by new collectors the value is more in the jackets than the book, as the jacket are scarcer due to wear, loss and handling. Each book and jacket impression are unique; different ads on the flap, prices, impressions and text changes and corrections. The condition of each also makes this a unique collection as we believe these are the best condition example of each of the first ten printings as the jackets have been upgraded to better quality examples over time. These were children¿s books and the jackets suffered wear and tear even when the books were new, but over the years the jacket paper has become brittle and delicate with age. Even with gentle handling they suffer further damage each time with small chips falling off. Some have closed tears, tears to cover seams or detached and in section in some cases, but this isn¿t evident in the protective mylar. All jackets have tattering to spine ends, some paper loss, chips and scuffs to varying degree. Some are better than others as the paper was changed. The early impressions have some paper loss in particular, but this also makes them more affordable. Many have faded/darkening to the spine colours. All are good to very good, near fine in some cases. All original jackets with no restoration.The books are in very good condition considering they are well love and read often. Some have slight lean and gift inscriptions, some of the middle impressions have ghosting on the book spine/covers where the white of the image is burned onto the spine/book cover from the sun. All are complete, bindings tight, no serious stains, marks or damage. These comprise first and second editions but are commonly refer to the overall impression in printing order 2nd thru 10th. Up to the 3rdedition 1966 is considered scarce so there are three more books to complete the2nd editions. However, we stopped at 10 is a nice round number! These nine books are: 1st Impression. 19371st/2nd. 1942 1st/3rd. 1946 1st/4th.1951 2nd Edition/ 1st impression, 5th overall impression. 1954 2nd/2nd,6th. 1955 2nd/3rd, 7th. 1956 2nd4th,8th. 1957 2nd/5th, 9th and finally 19582nd/6th, 10 overall impression.

Descrizione: London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1937, 1937. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and covers blocked in black, top edge green, map endpapers printed in black and red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Spine gently rolled, a few small marks to covers, touch of foxing to edges and couple of pages. A lovely, bright copy, with top edge notably unfaded, in the strikingly well-preserved and fresh dust jacket, entirely unrestored, with just a few nicks to extremities and tiny closed tear to head of front panel. Frontispiece and 9 full-page uncoloured illustrations after drawings by the author. First edition, first impression, in the first issue jacket with the hand-correction to "Dodgeson" on the rear inside flap, and genuinely rare in such beautiful condition. At the start of 1936 The Hobbit existed only in the form of an incomplete typescript, with the story breaking off at the death of Smaug, until a friend of one of Tolkien's pupils, who worked for Allen & Unwin, read it. She suggested that Tolkien complete the story and submit it to be considered for publication the following year. Tolkien set to work and had nearly finished the story by August that year, sending the typescript to Allen & Unwin on 3 October. Tolkien prepared more than 100 of his own illustrations for the book, although soon realised that this number would have to be greatly reduced for publication; he approved the printed illustrations on 5 February 1937. He submitted a number of textual corrections to the proofs and a draft of the now-iconic dust jacket, depicting the mountains Bilbo Baggins traverses, on 13 April 1937. The first edition was published on 21 September 1937 and the first impression of 1,500 copies was sold out by December. Hammond & Anderson A3a. Codice articolo 126609
