This book, "The Father Christmas Letters", was edited by Baillie Tolkien from J R R Tolkien's original letters to his children, and publlshed by Unwin Paperbacks in 1990 -- the first softcover edition, although the first hardcover edition was issued in 1976
"Every December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for J R R Tolkien's children. Inside would be a letter in strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful drawing or some sketches. The letters were from Father Christmas. ... Many of these enchanting letters and drawings are gathered into this book".
The book has numerous illustrations, in colour and in black-and-white. Size ; 275mm x 210mm. This has come from an old shop's unsold stock and has never been read, so the contents are very clean, without added inscriptions. The covers are also very good with only a hint of rubbing at the corners, etc, and an original barcode label fixed to the back cover.
