Bilbo. En Hobbits Äventyr [The Hobbit.]

I Översättning av Britt G. Hallqvist och med Illustrationer av Tove Jansson.

Description: FIRST JANSSON EDITION, 10 full-page drawings with numerous smaller drawings throughout text, a little waviness to page heads at beginning and end of text, pp. 308, 8vo, original quarter green cloth with colour-printed Jansson illustration to upper board, some trivial wear at extremities and gentle fading around head, ownership inscription to flyleaf, very good

Publication Details: Stockholm: Rabén & Sjögren, 1962

Notes: An attractive edition - a book whose scarcity can be attributed to both author and illustrator being immensely collectable separately. Given the importance of the Nordic influence on Tolkien's work, there is something reciprocal about the foremost illustrator of the region turning her hand to one of his most enduring works - and the results are delightful.
