[SOLD] J.R.R. Tolkien – The Hobbit – First Paperback Edition 1961

A first edition, first printing of the first paperback edition. Published by Puffin in 1961.

In particularly good condition. Cover unusually vibrant, with no major creases or folds. No writing or markings inside.  Some age tanning to contents, as is normal with this title.  Binding square and tight.

This edition of Tolkien’s novel is a more affordable – but still collectible – alternative to the rare first hardback edition of the book. Increasingly hard to find.
