Farmer Giles of Ham, The Rise and Wonderful Adventures of Farmer Giles, Lord of Tame, Count of Worminghall and King of the Little Kingdom, by J.R.R. Tolkien. This is his second major published work, preceded only by the Hobbit. Originally published in 1949, this is the 11th impression of the 1st Edition, published by Allen & Unwin, in 1974.
A Near Fine book, spine slightly sunned, with original dustjacket (unclipped) in Near Fine condition as well. One small closed tear to the back edge of the spine, one tiny bit of rubbing and subsequent loss to the bottom of the dustjacket folds. No stains to the dustjacket, no writing or previous owners name. Textblock is clean, bright and tight, without any foxing, top edge slightly dusty. Dustjacket shows some light sunning to the spine, and is not price clipped. 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.
