This sumptuous gift set includes a replica of the very rare first edition of The Hobbit, the only edition where one can now read the original version of the story before Tolkien re-edited it nearly 30 years later. • The Holy Grail for Tolkien fans – the chance to read the original first edition, reprinted here in facsimile form for the first time. • Published in an attractive gift box to protect the book. The Hobbit was published on 21 September 1937 with a print run of 1,500 copies. With a beautiful cover design and nearly a dozen black & white drawings by the author himself, the book proved to be popular and was reprinted shortly afterwards, and history was already being made. The scarcity of the first edition has resulted in copies commanding huge prices, way beyond the reach of most Tolkien fans. In addition, subsequent changes to the text - particularly those to chapter five when Tolkien decided to expand the text to marry it up to events in The Lord of the Rings - meant that the opportunity to read the book in its original form and format has become quite difficult. This special printing reprints the first edition, so that Tolkien’s story may be enjoyed in its original form.
