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.
Published in 1949, this is the 1st impression of the 1st Edition, published by Allen & Unwin in it's original dustjacket.

A Very Good book, with original near fine dustjacket (unclipped). The dustjacket is only lightly soiled and does not show any loss or damages.
The front panel looks near fine and only shows some minor bumps to the corners. The textblock is clean, without any foxing, top edge dusty, a slight bit of offsetting to the endpapers and to the bottom of the text block.

There are two color plates by Pauline Baynes, as well as being illustrated on almost every page with her line drawings.

Highly collectable, this is a nice copy for any Tolkien fans collection.

Digital photos available, inquire if interested.
