Seller: andrew323 (1,085) 100%, Location: Bristol, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 253987825501 An early set of the Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien published in London by George Allen & Unwin: The Fellowship of the Ring, 5th printing of the 2nd edition, 1970; The Two Towers, 2nd printing of the 2nd edition, 1967; The Return of the King, 2nd printing of the 2nd edition, 1967. All bound in real scarlet cloth with gold lettering on the spines and Tolkien’s fold-out maps of Middle Earth in black and red mounted on the rear endpapers. Although technically the second edition, the books themselves are hardly altered from the first edition copies that had ceased to be printed in 1966 – they differ from the first edition mainly in the grey livery of their dustjackets (the first editions had whitish jackets). However, the dustjacket design retains Tolkien’s drawing of Sauron’s eye surmounted by a ring of power as its central feature. The dustjackets will be protected in removable clear cellophane, but this is removed in the photos. CONDITION: The books are NOT ex-library and are all in very good plus to near fine condition. The red staining on the top edge of the page blocks is still bright and unfaded. The Return of the King has a few pages with mild vertical creases near its middle without any damage to the text (see photo of pp114-115). The dustjacket of The Fellowship of the Ring is price clipped. Boards are very nice and all books are complete and intact with pristine fold-out maps at the rear. The dustjackets have very little wear and you could be forgiven for supposing these fifty-year-old volumes were bought in a bookshop yesterday except for a few faint marks. Ideal as a gift (maybe for yourself or else for another Tolkien fan), but also likely to prove a good investment, if looked after, since early sets are highly collectible. Will be posted in bubblewrap and cardboard layers to preserve their smart condition. Dustjackets will be protected with removal cellophane wrappers when delivered.
