The Hobbit Puffin Edition
This is the paperback version of the Hobbit published by Penguin Books in 1961. Since it was a book in the Puffin Book series, it is also referred to as the Puffin Hobbit. Since, for copyright reasons, it was not published in the US, it is extremely hard to find in the US. Since Puffin Books were considered inexpensive paperbacks, I expect they were discarded anyway. Its main collectible interest is the cover by Pauline Baynes. This depicts Gandalf, Bilbo and the Dwarves running for cover from the thunder and lightning in the Misty Mountains. A postcard with the scene is available from The Marion E. Wade Center of Wheaton College.
