What would you do if you had a first edition, first impression of one of the most desirable books of 20th century literature, I speak of the UK first edition, first impression of J R R Tolkien's "The Return of the King" published by George Allen and Unwin in 1955 completed with map and internally complete and undamaged.
Would you like the previous owner chose to cover the book in sticky back plastic and even worse stick the plastic covering down to the pasteboards. I thought not. Nevertheless we must grit our teeth and say that whatever, it is an incredibly rare and sought after book. After the meteor strikes or the Iran launches its nuclear bomb two things will be unaffected, cockroaches and sticky back plastic.
Anyway I have taken scans of this book from every angle so it is revealed in all its horrors and glories but I am happy to take condition questions.
