Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien First 1st Edition Set . All hardback books with original dust jackets. Published by George Allen Unwin in 1956/57 Fellowship of the Ring. 1st edition 5th printing from December 1956 . The Two Towers 1st edition 5th printing from January 1957 Return of the King. 1st edition 3rd impression from 1957 All 3 Red hardback books are very very good. Clean tight binding bright colour covers , no spotting on pages. Actually look unread. There are a couple of rusty type marks on about 8 pages of return of the king. Please see photo. All have original fold out maps. There is a faded signature in old ink on the front end paper of 2 of the books it does actually look like Tolkien , but I am not selling as a signed set as I can not authenticate the signature and personally do not believe it be his. Please judge for yourself. The dust jackets are all original but they have discolouration to spines and have deteriorated, the two towers (see photo ) has the worst dust jacket. The dust jackets are now in removable protective sleeves. Apart from the ware to dust jackets this is a very very nice original set of books. I am happy to send any amount of photos upon request. Free worldwide insured postage Any questions please ask thanks for looking
