Condition: An attractive early '1950s' set. The three books are in very good condition, points and spine tips sharp, boards clean, bright and unfaded; Towers has a few specks on the back board. Text-block edges very slightly dusty and mottled. The three maps are perfect. Each book has the same single neat ink inscription. The text blocks are all very clean indeed. Bindings strong. A lovely, early set as follows: Fellowship: 7th imp., 8th dust jacket as issued. Spine foot a little rubbed. Endpapers a little marked. Two Towers: 5th imp, so is the dust jacket. All clean and tight. Return: 4th imp., so is the dust jacket. All clean and tight. All three of the original dust jackets have been laminated with plastic at some point. This has kept them well preserved and it may well come off with the right treatment. Fellowship has been repaired at some point. All in all a great set for a great price. Please see the photos, they are part of the description.

The small print: RESEARCH: Libraryhub is the free, easy-to-use site which displays the holdings of British libraries. It is great for basic research such as dates and collation. Also, see abebooks (use the advanced search) and wikipedia to find out more about the items here. PHOTOGRAPHS: 'See the photographs for more details, they are part of the description.' This is important. I always post plenty of images so that you can see exactly what you are buying. If you need any additional information just ask. And if you know something I don't, please tell me, I have been selling books for 25 years but I'm always learning. POSTING : I only post to the UK. I am happy to combine postage. I usually post the next day and everything is well packaged and sent with a tracking number.
