Description: Published in 2000 - Limited to 1000 copies worldwide. A deluxe edition of the first five volumes of J.R.R. Tolkien's The History of Middle-earth series, printed on India paper and set in a slipcase. A very RARE volume on today's secondary market. Features: Quarter bound in black leather, in a cloth covered slipcase, and printed on gold-gilded India paper Condition: Fine - There are some very small rub marks to the leather along the spine of the book; the book however is unread. The slipcase shows the slightest shelf wear from storage. The long edge of the gilded pages has some unevenness, however it was like that at purchase, likely a factor of the high number of pages bound together on thin bible paper. (See photos). * I am a private collector and seller, specializing in fine-binding and lesser known books.
