The Hobbit (Hardback, de luxe edition)

By Tolkien, J. R. R.

The first publication of a deluxe slipcased edition of The Hobbit, featuring the revised, reset text. The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfor...t-loving unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar. Encounters with trolls, goblins, wizards, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon, Smaug, and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of Five Armies are just some of the adventures that befall Bilbo. Bilbo Baggins has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals of children's fiction. Written by Professor Tolkien for his own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when published. Now, for the first time, we are publishing a deluxe edition featuring the reset text. Limited to just 2,500 copies, bound in cloth and leather and set in a cloth-bound slipcase, this desirable collector's item will feature colour illustrations and endpapers, and is stamped in gold on both the book and slipcase.
