You are bidding on The Two Towers by J R R Tolkien, published by Houghton Mifflin in 1955. First US edition, later printing, of this second volume in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, lacking the date on title page and first edition statement on copyright page, and with single strike through in price sign on front jacket flap, but without later printing statements on copyright page. Light discoloration to endpapers, light staining and discoloration to spine, with spots of discoloration to top page ends, but a solid clean copy with map at rear in excellent condition. Jacket is G+ only, with large closed tear extending across 2/3 of rear jacket panel (see photos);, large chip to top of spine, with smaller chips to lower spine, lower half of front spine joint split; jacket panels rubbed and soiled, very faint smell of must to text block, but still a decent copy now in protective mylar. Please email any questions and thanks for looking!
