J.R.R. TOLKIEN "The Lord of the Rings [The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King" FIRST EDITION SET OF 3 George Allen & Unwin, Ltd., London, 1955. Hardcover. Three volumes. Each volume is a first edition, first issue. All three volumes are fine and bright. All in original dustwrappers. Simply the finest set for sale in the world. Housed in a quarter-morocco folding case. Probably the most beloved fantasy, and easily one of the most important novels of the 20th Century. Recently discovered by a new generation, in part due to the award-winning film trilogy by Peter Jackson. Mixed issue sets, made-up sets employing wildly divergent-condition of the individual volumes, and rebound sets abound, but first issue sets in uniformly fine condition remain scarce and desirable.
