The Hobbit Coloring Book
(n.p.), Charlie & Marsha Brown, 1969. More than a dozen artists contribute 17 different drawings to this fan-based publication. The majority of the drawings illustrate specific lines from the book. 8-1/2" x 11"; side-stapled; some light staining to covers; no pages colored. Near fine. Although The Hobbit was first published in the U.S. in the 1930s, it wasn't until the mid-1960s that The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings gained a cult following on college campuses and became part of the counterculture. Given that the Tolkien phenomenon continues unabated more than a half-century later, this counts as an early tribute publication. No copies on OCLC. [#035690] SOLD
