Hobbit Facsimile First Edition: Boxed Set by J.R.R. Tolkien (English) Hardcover

Hobbit Facsimile First Edition by J.R.R. Tolkien. The scarcity of the first edition has resulted in copies commanding huge prices, way beyond the reach of most Tolkien fans. This special printing reprints the first edition, so that readers of all ages - not just 'children between the ages of 5 and 9', as Rayner Unwin famously declared in his report on the original submission - can finally enjoy Tolkien's story as it originally appeared.
