Book: The Hobbit (Folio Illustrated)
Bilbo Baggins is a reasonably typical hobbit: fond of sleeping, eating, drinking, parties and presents. However, it is his destiny to travel to the dwarflands in the east, to help slay the dragon Smaug.
His quest takes him through enchanted forests, spiders' lairs, and under the Misty Mountains, where he comes across the vile Gollum, and tricks him out of his 'Precious' - a ring that makes its bearer invisible, and wields a terrible power of its own.
Bound in paper blocked in gold with a design by Francis Mosley.
Set in Fournier with Omnia display.
Illustrated by Eric Fraser.
