Yes, all three volumes have intact dust jackets in very good condition considering they're almost 45 years old. I bought a similar set a couple of years ago of a later printing (1970) in not as good condition and paid significantly more for it.

I'm happy to double your money if you want to sell.

That's a very good purchase for £5

I bought all of these items on eBay for £20 (free postage), extremely poor listing, all first printings of these particular printings, with dust-jackets in case anyone asks.

I was very pleased with "The Silmarillion", but getting these copies of "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" was a bonus

Sometimes the fates smile upon you. Last week I was perusing the book section at one of the local thrift stores when I came upon a set of the trilogy in hardcover. It was a first impression of the Unwin Allen second edition in very good condition. The best part is I picked it up for about 5 pounds. Has anyone else ever been lucky enough to stumble on a similar situation?

Thank you for the information. I couldn't check the Companion & Guide, because it's in my student's apartment. But I'll checked when I'm there again.
There was a copy of the booklet on eBay, which I was following (and perhaps to buy), but it has sold today or yesterday. Did someone of you bought it? If so, can you give me quick review when you get it?
