Copy Number 17 of a limited Edition of only 25 copies, Thornton’s specially rebound edition of “Roverandom”.
This copy has been dedicated by Priscilla Tolkien on the front fly leaf:
"For Gary, Terri and Sam / With the warmest greetings / from / Priscilla Tolkien / Oxonmoot / 1999".

This is copy number 17 in mint perfect condition.
Only writing inside is the dedication by Priscilla Tolkien, and a pencil not in her hand "N14 One of 25 copies in full leather".
