The Hobbit, 1951 J R R Tolkien, 2nd Edition 5th Impression overall, very scare. There are no signatures or inscriptions, the contents are crisp, clean and bright. The book has been professionally re-backed and the original spine laid down.The boards and original spine show very little signs of the fading that is normally found. There is some historical cracking of the front and rear hinges, which has been stabilised by the re-backing, the binding is tight. The 1951 5th impression of The Hobbit is a particularly hard Hobbit to find, they rarely come on the market. This item is in the category "Books, Comics & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectable".
