The Hobbit or There and Back Again

By Tolkien, J R R




 
J.R.R. Tolkien's own description for the original edition: "If you care for journeys there and back, out of the comfortable Western world, over the edge of the Wild, and home again, and can take an interest in a humble hero (blessed with a little wisdom and a little courage and considerable good luck), here is a record of such a journey and such a traveler. The period is the ancient time between the age of Faerie and the dominion of men, when the famous forest of Mirkwood was still standing, and the mountains were full of danger. In following the path of this humble adventurer, you will learn by the way (as he did) -- if you do not already know all about these things -- much about trolls, goblins, dwarves, and elves, and get some glimpses into the history and politics of a neglected but important period. For Mr. Bilbo Baggins visited various notable persons; conversed with the dragon, Smaug the Magnificent; and was present, rather unwillingly, at the Battle of the Five Armies. This is all the more remarkable, since he was a hobbit. Hobbits have hitherto been passed over in history and legend, perhaps because they as a rule preferred comfort to excitement. But this account, based on his personal memoirs, of the one exciting year in the otherwise quiet life of Mr. Baggins will give you a fair idea of the estimable people now (it is said) becoming rather rare. They do not like noise."

First edition identification and notes

-George Allen & Unwin Ltd. of London published the first edition of The Hobbit on 21 September 1937 with a print run of 1,500 copies, illustrated in black and white by Tolkien, who also designed the dust jacket. The first printing sold out by December. In early 1938 Houghton Mifflin of Boston and New York reset type for an American edition, and included four of the illustrations in color plates. Allen & Unwin decided to incorporate the colour illustrations into their second printing, released at the end of 1937. World War II and paper rationing disrupted the printing, but subsequent edition were published in 1951, 1966, 1978 and 1995, and the novel has been reprinted frequently by many publishers, and translated into over forty languages.

London: George Allen and Unwin, 1961. [Children's Fantasy] SECOND EDITION, the thirteenth impression. Octavo (19 x 14cm), pp.315 [5]. With a chromolithographic frontispiece and occasional line-drawn illustrations by the author, as well as maps drawn by the author to endpapers. Publisher's green cloth with darker green titles and illustrations to spine and upper board. With the blue and green dust-jacket illustrated by the author. A little spotting to edges. Very light edge rubbing to marginally short dust-jacket. A clean bright copy; near-fine. Seldom has any book been so widely read and loved as this classic tale. Its hero, Bilbo Baggins, has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals: Alice, Pooh, Toad... Tolkien's Middle-Earth is a vast mine of treasures and knowledge, its roots delving deep into folklore, mythology and language. 'The Hobbit' is an ideal introduction to this richly imagined world, which was more fully and complexly realised in 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Silmarillion'.

The Hobbit or There and Back Again (slipcase)

Tolkien, J. R. R.

London: HarperCollins Publishers. Hardcover. 300pp. 2007. Fifth edition. This edition published to mark the 70th anniversary of first publication, includes a foreword by Christopher Tolkien. This edition comes with its own slipcase and so very much has the appearance of a deluxe edition. A lovely, clean, tight fresh looking very good plus copy in a near fine wrapper. The slipcase is also in lovely near fine condition. No inscriptions. Coloured maps to the endpapers and a number of illustrative plates (14) - including some colour ones - all as called for. Some thumb marking to the title page - not soiled in anyway but with light or slight associated creasing to the page. Every other page in the book is immaculate - before and after this one. The wrapper has not been price-clipped - it has a few light soil marks to the reverse of the wrapper (printers marks?) and like the slipcase is also in very good condition indeed. A lovely, fresh, clean, tight copy. . Very Good. 2007. Fifth Edition.
