This is his second major published work, preceded only by the Hobbit. Published in 1950, printed in Great Britain, this is the 1st impression of the 1st Edition, published by Houghton Mifflin.
A Very Good Plus book, some slight fading to the spine of the book, top edge slightly dusty, with original dustjacket (unclipped showing $2.00) in Very Good condition. Showing some edgewear, chips and minor loss to the top edge of the back panel, a couple of short closed tears as well.
One water spot to the front panel of the dustjacket, and some fading to the front and spine. Textblock is clean and tight, without any foxing, no names or writing.
Two color plates by Pauline Baynes, as well as being illustrated on almost every page with her line drawings.
Highly collectable, this is a very nice copy for any Tolkien fans collection.
