The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R.Tolkien Deluxe Edition For sale is the 1969 first impression George Allen & Unwin Deluxe Edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. The book is absolute quality and many say the finest of all the deluxe editions. It is printed on India (bible) paper and is less than an inch thick. The edges of the pages are speckled green which looks lovely when the book is closed. There are two fold out maps (one after The Two Towers and one at the end of the book). The book completes complete with its original rarer slipcase vs. later editions which were issued in the more common box. The book itself is in good unread condition with no inscriptions or foxing. Pages very good being picky fractional creases on odd pages. A few marks on the boards and slight fade to spine gilt but hard to believe this book is now almost 50 years old. The slipcase is marked and worn but has done its job well protecting the book (see pictures). So overall a lovely book and getting rarer to find in good condition. Any overpaid postage will be refunded once dispatched. Thanks
