The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. This copy published in 1979 by the Folio Society.
In Very Good Plus/Near Fine condition with slipcase.
This is the stated 1st printing of the 1st Folio Edition, whereas the Folio 1976 Misbound Deluxe Edition is a variant colored edition being the actual 1st printing of the Folio edition (per Hammond), this is now considered the second state or printing.
The Title page of this edition does state "Folio Society" as it should.
A splendid companion to the 1st Folio set of the Lord of the Rings, with matching design and format. Gilt is still bright and untarnished on this book.
Most minor of scuffing to leather on the spine, and some edgewear to the slipcase.
