Tolkien, JRR: The Two Towers HB/DJ Later Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Co., 1954 (the copyright date was omitted in this edition) This is a stated eleventh printing. The map is firmly attached to the back of the book. The book is in Very Good + condition with no notable defects. Some minor water damage on pages 97 to 117. The unclipped ($5.95) jacket is in Very Good condition with some staining and a few tiny pieces missing (see scan). The book has 4 square corners. There is no writing or marks in the book. This is not a remainder, book club or ex-library copy. The binding has a reading slant but is tight. Please note: The picture(s) are of the actual item for sale. (Pictures are NOT stock photos.) If the book has a dust jacket: The dust jacket is protected in a Brodart to ensure that it remains in the best possible condition. The Brodarted dust jacket is not taped to the book. Shipping for this item is $4.00 for media rate (for U.S. addresses). If you want priority mail, send your address and we'll calculate it. Insurance optional for orders under $50. Note: If you buy more than one item, make sure you contact us, because we combine shipping and never change more than $5.00 for media rate. DEFINITIONS “First” thus refers to the first printing of a new edition of a book. TPB refers to a trade paperback edition. Trade paperbacks are oversized paperback editions. PBO (Paperback Original) means this is a first edition/first printing paperback, which is also the first time this book was published (the true first edition of this book). ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) means this was a limited edition paperback (usually paperback) copy of a soon to be released hard back book. BOOK GRADING GUIDE Because hobbies have different words for describing conditions, I'd like to tell you how I grade the collectibles I sell. Books are graded with the ABA standard in mind. That means books range from G (good) to Fine. I don't use a VFN or any form of Mint to describe a book. A book that is NF (near fine) can also be thought of as almost new. A full list of typical conditions ranges from: G, VG, VG+, VG+/NF, NF, to FN
