The Hobbit or There and Back Again By J.R.R. Tolkien Illustrated by the Author
Printed by George Allen & Unwin Ltd
Sixth Impression (second edition) 1954
The Spine cover is missing (as shown in first picture) and cover faded, it has a small stamp mark of Bewdley Wribbenhall School on inside front cover has the previous young ladies details inside (shown in picture) and the odd pencil mark which I am leaving for the new owner to rub out if required.
There are 315 pages all complete and the book itself is sturdy.
There is a page inside that gives a list of minor inaccuracies that have been corrected in this addition if that is of interest.
I have tried to look up what value this book might be and was quite shocked to see how much the old impression and editions are worth.
I am starting it at what I think is a low price even though the book isn't in the best of conditions.
