First published in in 1937, this commemorative edition by Unwin Hyman (London, 1987) contains unpublished illustrations by Tolkien including images of a rare surviving page of the original draft of the first chapter and an Introduction by Christopher Tolkien.
Map endpapers; 13 illustrations not including either the map endpapers or the line drawings in the Introduction. The dust jacket, with wrap-around art by Tolkien, is not price-clipped and has three shallow closed tears: Near Fine. The boards are slightly bumped along the top edge; the text block bears a bright red remainder mark, also along the top edge. Nevertheless, a very presentable copy of an uncommon and desirable edition given the material not found in the original printing. No previous owner names or other markings.
