Thanks, I did not know that the first impression dust-wrapper does not have the impression number on the dust-jacket spine.

Does anyone know which impression they stopped putting the impression number on the spine?

Every copy that I have ever seen has a box, additionally they should also be wrapped in tissue paper.

As already mentioned (and you see from the picture), I believe that this is the only first edition LOTR edition with the impression details on the dust jacket spine. An unusual copy.

I know the seller of this item very well and have a lot of respect for ADC, but would anyone really want to have this item in their house, at this price

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Lord-Rings-Oak- ... es_EH&hash=item4cf1e0717e

As an aside, I thought I had to mention this one as well

A VERY RARE CHANCE TO GRAB SUCH A COLLECTABLE EDITION A TRUE COLLECTORS ITEM VERY COLLECTABLE AND A GREAT INVESTMENT


I'm struggling with this item, from the pictures the box set looks pretty good but the Dust Jackets are in appalling condition, so probably not the same set of books that came in the box set.

And another one, second edition's with accompanying dust jackets

Your trick will be getting the Unfinished Tales with the matching HoME cover to complete the set. That one took me years and is the only one that would be difficult to replace!


This is the edition that Stu refers to
