The Lord of the Rings JRR Tolkien I have pleasure in offering for sale this set of First Editions & original slipcase by Tolkien - The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers & The Return of the King. All three are in good condition, have original, unrestored wrappers, maps at the rear, pages tight and in removable protective wrappers. Fellowship of the Ring – Twelfth 1962. Name inscription, slight lean, unclipped very clean jacket. No tears. The Two Towers - Ninth 1962. Small closed tear on bottom of unclipped jacket spine, usual sun faded spine. Minute tears to top of spine. Covers very clean. The Return of King - Tenth 1963. Unclipped jacket , no tears, fractional handling marks and usual sun faded spine. Slipcase - The slipcase is in good condition to say its 50+ years old. The plate is faded and marked and light shelf wear/marks/knocks evident to other panels. Small paper peeling on odd edges but no case splits. So overall a very clean set of books and one of the better sets I have handled. Together with the fragile case this is one of the earliest Lord of the Rings box sets available. A lovely addition to a Tolkien collection and a great Christmas present maybe? This set is heavy and will be only sent via special delivery, very well packed, thus insuring both the winner and myself at a cost of £7 to UK and £30 elsewhere. Any overpaid postage will be refunded once sent as is my usual policy. Please see my other Tolkien items and do let me know if any more info needed. Payment within 3 days please.
