The Hobbit, Limited Numbered Edition, published in 1987 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the original publication of The Hobbit published to celebrate the centenary of J.R.R. tolkien's birth on January 3, 1892.


The Hobbit, Super Deluxe numbered Limited edition, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published in 1987 by Harper Collins.

This copy is numbered 143 of 500, and contains the special foreword by Christopher Tolkien.

This copy is in fine condition outside, but for one or another strange reason has dots and speckles inside. While it still crackles when opening and seems unread, somehow moist did leave a mark in form of little specks. This is the only fault on this copy and it is mostly on the first pages, the rest of the text block is clean. Sad to see this book like this, but now in stable condition.

Bound in dark green leather, and housed in original publishers slipcase. With 143 Limitation Notice on the limitation page.

No further marks or writing, still crackles when opened. Most copies have a lot of sunning of the spine, this one is still green.

A must for the serious collector.


An nice limited edition The Hobbit, again one of only 600 produced worldwide. 

Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
