1971 1st/4th UK edition filled with Pauline's wonderful illustrations. No jacket as issued, scuffing to edges, cover colors faded to pink. Note the 4th impressioj has a white border around the cover edge while the 1st does not. Minor damage to some pages, please ask for details- email@example.com Importantly, signed by Tolkien. This is a unique association copy signed by J.R.R. Tolkien to his nurse Mrs Beaton who was caring for him. There are very few signed book copies this late as Tolkien was quite fed up at this stage with being bothered by fans. The distinct pen style and wear and tear to the book led it its authenticity of this unique association copy, thus such a high price. If you are looking for truly unique items, please contact us or if you have unique items for sale. We buy rare Tolkien books and art. www.festivalartandbooks.com Important- Shipping Times this Xmas We do not share the Royal mail’s exuberance on shipping packages. Namely it’s the risk of them getting lost, not simply delayed over Christmas and New Year time. Items ordered for UK shipping this week, 9th-15th December, should arrive on time under the free option. Order now! Overseas customers should opt for the Fast Service at extra cost to be sure it arrives in time for Xmas if it’s a gift. Next week 16th-22nd, UK orders should select the Fast service option if you want it in time, although we can’t guaranty it if ordered later in the week. All orders received after December 20th will not ship until January 6th, again to reduce the risk of them getting lost in the mail. Most of our items are rare. You should still order them as soon as possible before they sell elsewhere. Thank you for your understanding.
