Smith of Wootton Major by J.R.R. Tolkien
1567 (actually 1967), George Allen and Unwin Limited, London.
Unusual and rare proof copy supplied to booksellers ahead of publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's Smith of Wootton Major. In very good condition overall, tight binding with some fading to spine. In plain grey-green paper covers. Stamped on front with 'book proof'.
This proof copy only shows a bit of aging, else about fine.
In the publisher's smooth paper wraps, decorated in black on the front cover, with the review stamp to the front wrap, in blue ink:
'Book proof - Published Price - 7/6 - Publication Date - (stamped secondarily in black) 9. Nov. 1967.'
Only the proof copies carry the 1567 printer's error publication date. Among the scarest (printed) Tolkien items.
Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
