Up for auction is another amazing piece from my Tolkien collection! This is the super rare FOLIO SOCIETY, LIMITED NUMBERED EDITION (#1373 of 1750 total printed worldwide) of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic, "THE LORD OF THE RINGS", published in 2001. All three volumes, "THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING", "THE TWO TOWERS" and "RETURN OF THE KING", are housed in their original, mint condition, publisher's slipcase decorated in beautiful gold gilt. All three books are in perfect, mint, unread condition. Their bindings are tight and there are no inscriptions, bookplates, marks or otherwise on these very fine hardback books and matching slipcase. This particular edition is one-of-a-kind, bound in goatskin leather with Indian silk boards and contained in a scalloped leather decorated slipcase. The top edges of each book are gilded and each contains a ribbon page marker. The decorative lettering on slipcase and book spines was designed by calligrapher, John Andrew, and is stunning and unique. This edition features extensive Middle Earth maps on the endpapers and each book also includes three full-page illustrations and illustrated chapter headings by Ingahild Grathmer and redrawn by artist, Eric Fraser. Again, this is a limited edition of 1750 copies of which this is number 1373 (see pictures).I have tried my best to display the condition of this extremely rare collectible book set in the attached pictures but if you require any further pictures, please don't hesitate to contact me. With the second installment of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" having made record box-office around the world, and with the third and final movie coming later this year, these collectibles are bound to get more and more valuable. Though these books are basically new and in mint condition I must point out that this is my personal copy - I am not a book dealer, just a Tolkien fan, so I do not offer warranties. Please examine the pictures carefully and ask any questions beforehand, as I will only accept returns if the book is not substantially as pictured. As always, I offer this beautiful set with NO RESERVE PRICE, a low starting bid, and FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE (through eBay Global Shipping). See my feedback and bid with confidence!! Any questions, please ask! Good luck, and happy bidding!
