J.R.R. Tolkien. ORIGINAL REVIEW or PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL for LORD OF THE RINGS. 1955. Rare! These would have been included with a review copy of the first American Edition published by Houghton Mifflin Company. 1955. They are actually fairly easy to date as one slip mentions the upcoming publication of THE TWO TOWERS, which appeared in America in April, 1955. Nice to see a photograph of Tolkien, taken when the Ring trilogy was being published. Each is printed on glossy photographic paper and each is fine. Each measures 7" x 5". I have actually never seen these before and suspect they are quite rare. Great for the serious collector who has a set of first American editions. $6.00 for FIRST CLASS SHIPPING, outside continental U.S. at cost. Please bid with knowledge and care. California residents required to add 7.75% sales tax. Thank you and happy bidding!
