The dust jackets are sunned and chipped but generally clean and complete. The Fellowship of the Ring 1955 4th ImpressionThe Two Towers 1955 2nd ImpressionThe Return of the King 1955 1st Impression All three jackets are correct for the impression number. 1955 was the very first time that all three books were available to be bought as a set.
