Signed by the renowned artist, Alan Lee. The book looks unread and still crackles when opening. Still the red cloth and the signature page show stains. Perhaps the book was once stored in a damp location. All is stable now. Except for these stains the book looks very nice.
Gilt title, gilded page edges, and gilt image of Smaug on the book and slipcase.
A stunningly beautiful and scarce edition in Fine Condition.
An nice limited edition The Hobbit, again one of only 600 produced worldwide.
