RARE

A faithful reproduction of the original notebook, printed within dark green borders, and with a printed text opposite each page of the original, this is Tolkien's delightfully comic take of eccentricity written for his children in the 1930s.

The first ever edition of Tolkien's illustrated tale about the eccentric Mr Bliss, a man notable for his immensely tall hats and for the girabbit in his garden, whose whimsical decision to buy a motor car quickly becomes a catalogue of disasters. Professor J.R.R. Tolkien invented and illustrated the book of Mr Bliss's adventures for his own children when they were very young. The book was handwritten with lots of detailed and uproarious colour pictures. This is a complete and highly imaginative tale of eccentricity.
