Farmer Giles of Ham - J.R.R. Tolkien

£10.99

Product description

A tale by author of The Hobbit, a fairy story which was acclaimed by discerning critics as possessing an imaginative vitality as rare as genius. Farmer Giles, rather than a fairy story of any usual kind, is an imaginative history of the distant and marvellous past. Its scene is the valley of the Thames and this island of Britain, while it was "still happily divided into many kingdoms," in the days before King Arthur or the Seven Kingdoms.

Here is a new hero, unheroic, but fortunate and shrewd, Farmer Giles of Ham, and his mare, and his dog. Here also for dragon-fanciers, is another dragon, less terrible perhaps than Smaug, but no less wealthy or willy: Chrysophylax of imperial line.

The outer cover is a little worn with some dirt and a few bits removed from the top due to handling or sticker removal. Inside the book has no loose or missing pages which are all generally clean and flat.

There is a pen ownership name written on the inside first page.
