Nice find David. Wish I could find a Tolkien book like that lying in some box. I knew a guy that found a first American edition copy of The Hobbit (with the dj) at a thrift store for cents; he ended up selling it a couple years ago for over $10,000.

I do occasionally come across good finds on eBay, Abebooks, or some other place online.

The condition is good.

The binding is solid.

The dust jacket is in good condition probably due to the mylar which is permantly glued to it. I don't think I can seperate them without doing some damage.

There's a some fraying at the corners of the spine and the edges of the pages are a little yellowed.

The worst part is it was a library book. It has a stamp and an impression on the title page and glue from the card envelope in the back.
