Unfinished Tales by J.R.R. Tolkien; edited by Christopher Tolkien *1st UK Edition / 1st Impression 1980* - Published by George Allen & Unwin / Great Britain For sale is the first edition of Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth by J.R.R. Tolkien, edited by his son Christopher. First published in 1980 this edition went through 8 printings between 1980 and 1987 (the final printing was published by Unwin Hyman). The original dust-jacket was especially prone to fading. From TolkienBooks.net: “Fading of the blue ink on the dustwrapper to a pale grey-green colour is especially common. Unusually this fading can even extend to the front flap which suggests that the fading is not entirely due to exposure to light.” The colors of the jacket for sale here (as well as the colors of the front flap) show very little fading, better than the norm. About the book: Unfinished Tales is a collection of stories and essays by J. R. R. Tolkien that were never completed during his lifetime, but were edited by his son Christopher Tolkien and published in three volumes in 1980.
