My uncle found this in a Charity Shop yesterday, what do people think?

1971 Fellowship of the Ring (6th Impression of the Second printing). price-clipped dust-jacket and a 21st Birthday inscription on front-page.

The History of the Hobbit (One Volume Edition) arrived today.

I have to say that I much prefer this edition to the original two separate editions, very similar in layout to the Companion and Guide from Findegil.

From a Tolkein[sic] Specialist

"Ballintine/Houghton Mifflin, Very first printing of the 1968 of the paperback set in response to the illegal Ballintine set. Very good overall, scuffing to all edges but no serious damage. Slipcase art by Pauline Baynes."

Only two minor problems occur to me, the Ballintine set may be illegal (I have never heard of this publisher?), the set on display appear to be the authorised Ballantine printings but did Pauline Baynes do the slipcase for this set? I had always thought it was Barbara Remington.

I would have thought the "rectangular white bits with the words" on should have got a mention, though some people here collect Silmarillion's without the words.
