The Lord of the Rings First Deluxe Edition Author: TOLKIEN, J. R. R. Title: The Lord of the Rings First Deluxe Edition Publication: Allen and Unwin, 1963 Description: Publisher's First Deluxe Edition. Three volumes bound in deluxe bevelled edge black buckram boards with gilt lettering & ring device to spines; all edges gilt with integral silk bookmark in each; all presented in the Pauline Baynes illustrated Middle Earth "triptych" slipcase as originally issued. A very good set. Some wear to gilt titles. Boards are generally clean bar The Two Towers which has a number of small marks, light wrinkling of cloth & usual mild lightening to spine. Notable rubbing to gilt on textblock edges. Internally clean and crisp with no inscriptions. Maps neat and unfolded at rear. The slipcase is in very good condition with light wear; one light bump to corner - none of the usual splitting. Overall a very good set of the rarest edition of any of the Lord of the Rings sets. Hammond p.98. Published in an edition of less than 1000 copies.
