Poems and Stories, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Contains The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son, On Fairy Stories, Leaf by Niggle, Farmer Giles of Ham, and Smith of Wootton Major.
Illustrated by Pauline Baynes, tolkien's favorite illustrator.
Bound in black buckram cloth with elaborate gilt stamped design to the front boards. Bright Gilt stamped author, title and publisher to the spine, blocked in single gilt ruled compartments.
A beautiful copy of this De Luxe Edition published by Allen & Unwin in 1980.
The only fault being the front endpapers have started to split down the gutter. No previous owners name or any other writing in the book.
Housed in the original publishers box with label on the cover, still with the original onion skin sheet wrapped around the book to protect it. No previous owner's names or markings whatsoever.
The box is in Very Good condition with the label clean and bright.
No bumped or split corners, it has still protected the book well for many years.
