The Book of Fairy Poetry. 1st Edition / 1st Printing.Publisher: Longmans, Green & Co. Beautiful large edition with lovely tissue-protected and colorful paste downs. Tolkien's poem: "Goblin Feet" See pp. Very rare large collectible volume in remarkably good shape. Internally very good, quite fresh and contains 16 pasted-on plates protected by tissue inserts and they are superb___bright and colorful. The final colorful plate paste down depicting gnomes is given the line quote from Tolkien's poem: The padding feet of many gnomes a-coming.
Just a delightful volume all round and a splendid find for the Tolkien collector. A very scarcely seen volume with special appeal to the devoted Tolkien collector and completist. Few copies of this First Edition have survived and fewer still in this condition. Because of Tolkien's early contribution it is a much sought after collectible antiquarian volume.
We try to do due diligence and research the pieces as we list them; they are varied: books & various rare publications, display collectibles, rare letters and posters...
