For more than half a century readers have journeyed alongside Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, a story of adventure, and the prequel to The Lord of the Rings.
This is a 1979 Folio Society fifth printing. Bound in tan leather with two black labels to the spine, and the title and author in gold lettering. A black ribbon to mark the page and black top and tail bands. The inset label shows an image of Great Eagles, along with 19 black-and-white pictures by Eric Fraser to illustrate each of the chapters.
