We are pleased to offer an outstanding set of the 1960 Readers Union, Lord of the Rings. When these arrived to our shipping department our first reaction was they looked freshly prints, books and dust jackets! These are truly as-new, no marks, no flaws, un-read. Likely bought brand new and kept in a collection. Originally 3000 sets were printed, but we have never seen a set in this new condition. This set comprises the same sheets from the 1960 Allen and Unwin books where extra sheets were printed just for RU. These were bound in their own bindings with their own dust wrappers. Rarely do collectors get the chance to acquire an important edition in such true fine condition. Don’t delay!

We do not deal in facsimile or restored jackets. While a future buyer may decide to have it restored, we advise against it if they intend to resell it someday. A book without an original jacket is worth a fraction of one with. A restored jacket is worth a considerable less, even if the work was very minor. “Restoring” is nothing more than a deception to make something damaged look artificially new. It’s a fake and most serious collectors and dedicated fans want an item as close to its original condition, any warts and all. It adds some value to a jacket-less book if the restoration is very, very minor, but nothing close to a book with an original unrestored jacket. Don’t be deceived into buying restored jackets as buyers now trying to sell their restore jackets now have been. A fake is fake! The rule is simply the closer to the original condition, the better and more valuable. Adding anything artificial, even if undetectable, seriously reduces the value to serious collectors. Don’t waste your money with false economy. Hold out and buy the best you can find! Please note, the free shipping option can take a week. If you want your item sooner, please choose one of the paid options. 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.
