No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality. 1st Revised Edition. 7.25 inches tall; color illustration on each page. When it first appeared in 1990, PW called Bilbo's Last Song by J.R.R.

The poem, purportedly written by Bilbo Baggins (hero of The Hobbit) just before he takes a ship from Middle-earth to the Undying Lands at the end of The Lord of the Rings, gives rise to Bayne's medieval-flavored paintings. The effect is stirring, the mood elegiac and the imagery riveting said PW. (Sept.) View more info
