There's a listing on Ebay right now of a 2nd edition LOTR set (1966) with a slipcase. Was this edition ever issued with a slipcase? It looks like an older 1st edition slipcase?

There is also a UK version of this book for sale here: http://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auc ... e-id-2854836/lot-13537971

Says it is signed, but info is minimal.

Good to hear the spine looks much better than expected and that you're happy with it :)

What would you do if you had a first edition, first impression of one of the most desirable books of 20th century literature, I speak of the UK first edition, first impression of J R R Tolkien's "The Return of the King" published by George Allen and Unwin in 1955 completed with map and internally complete and undamaged.

Would you like the previous owner chose to cover the book in sticky back plastic and even worse stick the plastic covering down to the pasteboards. I thought not. Nevertheless we must grit our teeth and say that whatever, it is an incredibly rare and sought after book. After the meteor strikes or the Iran launches its nuclear bomb two things will be unaffected, cockroaches and sticky back plastic.

Anyway I have taken scans of this book from every angle so it is revealed in all its horrors and glories but I am happy to take condition questions.

I ordered the Pocket Hobbit from Amazon Canada, and yes it's a first edition, but the paper quality is very poor.
