Hello everyone i have a question for you because i cant seem to find an answer elsewhere. I have a copy of the The Lord of the Rings Special Edition Ballantine set and as i was reading through them i noticed that the end of The two towers is missing. It seems that the pages weren't torn out or removed but that it was printed this way. The binding is still very tight. i was wondering if this was a common problem for this edition? It cuts off mid word on page 416 3 pages into chapter 9 shelob's lair. Since this is an older edition does this add any value to my set? I tried to include a picture but i had some trouble trying to upload it. Thank you for reading this, any information you have would be very helpful :)

This one is very strange, a first edition library book (ROTK 3rd Imp 1957), but laminated in a second edition dust-wrapper, 9 years later at least and from another copy of the book????

Sorry, I should have clarified: I meant J. R. R. Tolkien, not Christopher...

Well, Bilbo's Last Song is a Seventh Impression, while the Map of Beleriand is a Second Impression.

The others just have the year on them.

Condition of them all is good - they are 'mounted' on (but NOT stuck to!) a cardboard backing, with a sheet of perspex over the front. The perspex and cardboard sandwich are clipped together with special mounting clips which DON'T pierce the poster.

Hi
I agree with Jlong. Condition and edition is everything and this will dictate price by some margin. The Beleriand and Wilderland posters are quite common but still worthy of a few £'s or $'s. Just sent you a PM.
