Condition: 'Used'
ALL THREE 1st edition/1st impressions of The Lord of the Rings, bound by Houghton Mifflin in the United States, J R R Tolkien The Fellowship of the Ring 1954 map present The Two Towers 1955 no map (this map is the same as some of the slightly later early impressions) The Return of the King 1956 map present The text, and the text block edges, on all three books, are remarkably clean. All the books have the respective 1954, 1955 and 1956 on the Title page The Two Towers and The Return of the King are both ex-library and although they have library additions on the front paste down and the front free end papers there are none of the usual library stamps. The Two Towers has some damage to the half title page, but this page is not unique to the first impression, so a replacement can be found. The Fellowship of the Ring is NOT ex-library. These books could be re-cased into a better set of original boards, kept as a very hard to find 1,1,1 set, or rebound into fine bindings.
