1963 1st UK Lord of the Rings Deluxe Edition with Pauline Baynes Slipcase. Original 1st Deluxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings, housed in the very rare original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes colour triptych artwork, comprised of "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King". The rarest of all the original Allen & Unwin 1st Editions, as well as the Houghton Mifflin issues. According to the publisher's records, 1000 or fewer sets were produced. It’s briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson on page 98. Very good condition - a couple of age-related dings (pictured) and gift inscription on the inside page of The Fellowship of the Ring from 1965. Pages and gilding are in great condition considering their age and rarity. The spine of the Two Towers is slightly lighter in colour, but this is a common flaw with this edition. Upon selling they will be very carefully packaged and sent with signed-for and tracked postage to ensure their safe arrival.If you wish to learn more about this edition, send me a message and I can supply suitable sources
