Unwin Books, 1974 Second printing with original paper sleeve. With the exception of the faded book spine, these books are fine and look unread. Covers are fine comprising Tolkien's own artwork. It is the paper sleeve which is the most rare and collectible aspect. This set was very popular to a certain generation of fan. Please note, we do not combine shipping unless by prior agreement and dependent on the overall order amount. The extra weight and packaging does cost us more postage. If we do combine shipping costs it will be a discount and only on like items that can be shipped in the same package. For example, books and prints can not be shipped in the same package type i.e. tube verses box. Please contact us in advance or purchase or bid if you have any questions. Shipping charges are otherwise automatic. Postage and packaging is not free! Postage costs have risen significantly in a very short time, particularly on slightly heavier items like books or long items like tubes. They seem to be targeting on-line sellers in fee increases. The cost of strong, rigid packaging has also risen and needs to be stronger than before as the PO sorting office automatic sorting equipment seems to damage more items. All our items are rare and our customers would rather them arrive safely, than have free postage. Since EBay rules won’t let us set the real postage and we can only use their fixed rates, some customer may pay slightly more for very light items, but we lose money on heavier or larger ones. Thanks for your understanding. Important- Shipping dates for Christmas 2018 and part 2019. Read this before ordering! We will be shipping only once a month, at end of each month, starting from this October 27th, until March 30th, 2019. After next week, the next ship date is December 1st. That is it for the Christmas period! December 1st should still be in time for Christmas for UK shipping. Overseas customer should order now, or tick the express service to receive it by Christmas on our before December 1st. Sorry, no exceptions as we will not physically be here to ship, except these dates. Our shop remains open, order as you usually would, but expect your item at the end of each month. Note, nearly all of our items are one-of-a-kind and can sell out anytime. Buy now!
