1950's LR?
Full leather?
Oh, also: is your name Gilraen Bullock?
Even better...

Book Description: Allen & Unwin, London, 1956. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. This is an early 1st edition (5th, 5th, 4th impressions, ie 1956,1957, 1958) set fully rebound in dark maroon leather. Each book containe the neat inscription 'Bullock 1959'., The Fellowship does not have a map, There is a long tear to the paper of the map in The Two Towers but it doesn't impinge on to the actual map. Clean interiors. Each book has a gilt ring on the front board. Each spine contains the title The Fellowship of the Ring, then Tolkien, then Part 1, Part II, and Part III respectively. The top edge of the first book is gilt, the other two books have all edges gilt. Some marks to the leather covers. . A slightly oddly-produced one-off rebind but it's an early edition, and being full leather they feel comfortable in the hand and they have that distinctive leather smell to them. Will provide pictures if desired. Ignore Abe's postage quote - postage at cost. All my books are from my own private collection. I offer a full refund for any books that do not match my description.

Lord of the Rings (Abebooks)
Published by Allen & Unwin, London , 1956

Yours for £300!
