TOLKIEN, J. R. R. (John Ronald Reuel Tolkien 1892 - 1973 ) / BAYNES, Pauline Diana ( 1922 - 2008 ) .

London: George Allen And Unwin Ltd, MCMXLIX [ 1949 ] . 0. First edition in the original dustwrapper. pp.79. Illustrated dustwrapper, lightly soiled and rubbed. Small chips to corners. Top edge soiled and creased with small loss to rear cover. Orange cloth covered boards, edges lightly rubbed and soiled, with blue titles to boithe front board and spine. Decorarated endpapers. Gift inscription to front endpaper: "To Timothy With Love From Daddy 5/9/51 . " Clean throughout with numerous line drawings within the text, plus two full-page coloured plates by Pauline Diana Baynes. A lovely copy of this scarce book, now protected by a removable clear plastic cover. G+/G+ . * " Pauline Diana Baynes (9 September 1922 – 1 August 2008) was an English illustrator whose work encompassed more than 100 books, notably several by C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien." - See Wikipedia ** "Farmer Giles of Ham" is a comic Medieval fable written by J. R. R. Tolkien in 1937 and published in 1949. The story describes the encounters between Farmer Giles and a wily dragon named Chrysophylax, and how Giles manages to use these to rise from humble beginnings to rival the king of the land. It is cheerfully anachronistic and light-hearted, set in Britain in an imaginary period of the Dark Ages, and featuring mythical creatures, medieval knights, and primitive firearms. It is only tangentially connected with the author's Middle-earth legendarium: both were originally intended as essays in "English mythology". - See Wikipedia. *** Full title reads: "Farmer Giles of Ham : Aegidii Ahenobarbi Julii Agricole de Hammo Domini de Domito Aule Draconarie Comitis Regni Minimi Regis et Basilei mira facinora et mirabilis exortus : or in the vulgar tongue = The rise and wonderful adventures of Farmer Giles, Lord of Tame, Count of Worminghall and King of the Little Kingdom / J. R. R. Tolkien ; embellished by Pauline Diana Baynes." .
