J R R Tolkien The Return Of The King PART THREE OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS First Edition I have pleasure in offering for auction this rare and desirable collectors piece being a first edition/first impression of the third book in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Book The book is bound in its original red cloth cover and is a good example. It is unmarked with very minor shelf ware on bottom edges. The gilt titles remain bright and fresh. Internally the book is clean throughout and with no previous owner marks or inscriptions. The copyright page states First published 1955 with no other printings mentioned. The map to the rear is attached and in very excellent condition. Page 49 has slipped text & ‘4’ as shown. Dust Jacket The dust jacket is original to the book and is the matching first impression. It is not price-clipped stating 21s net as original price and is a nice example of usually fragile jacket. There are some expected chips on the spine ends and corners and sun faded spine. A few marks on front and back faces but nothing major. So in conclusion a rare book and it will make a fine addition to any Tolkien collection. A good start to acquiring a first Lord of Rings set. Let me know if buy it now required. Happy bidding and please take a look at my other Tolkien and related items.
