I was wrong it is buckram, so it is cloth which is obvious if you look at the book, which is very useful if you have a copy of this item.

A great edition of this wonderful fantasy classic by JRR Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings. This is the first deluxe edition, published by George Allen & Unwin in 1976; ie it is the first impression of this edition. Bound in black cloth, it has a multi-cloured dragon on the front. However, please note that this copy lacks the slipcase, hence the low opening price.


It is a paper not cloth binding on this edition.

Can you change the description please on eBay?, this book is not "Bound in black leather"

I think we all know what Tolkien's response was , the one missed correction came from him after all (I am sure that he got crosser and crosser when looking through this copy of the book), but I still would like to know if he ever got an apology!

Penguin never got any more Tolkien books so clearly this caused huge problems for him and his publishers (GA&U).
