Offered For Sale is one of the first ever produced editions of The Return of the King! This book is one the of the gems of my collection, being a first printing of the First UK addition. The dust jacket is a nearly complete example, although it is in 3 pieces it is now protected in a mylar cover. One of the pictures I have posted is to show the dropped 's' on Legolas at the bottom of page 49. I have tried to take good detailed pictures of the book to exemplify it's condition, but feel free to ask any questions or for additional pictures. The inside of the book is clean, no foxing or stains. The map at the back of the book is bright and clean, completely intact where glued to the book but does have a small single tear (less than half an inch long) at the top of where it is glued to the book. All offers will be considered so don't hesitate to contact me! Anytime that I buy a book I like to know exactly what condition it is in prior to getting it in the mail, and I would expect nothing less from anyone else! So I have tried to note all issues or defects and accurately picture all aspects of every book I am listing. I believe a picture is worth a thousand words and will be more than happy to send additional pictures or answer any questions you might have, so please do not hesitate to send me a message! I have been collecting Tolkien books for years and have a decent collection of rare and first edition books that I have decided to sell in order to pursue other interests, so check out the other items I have up for sell! Also, I have worked very hard to take care of the books in my collection. I have placed a mylar dust cover on all of the dust jackets and have kept all of the books free of dust and in a smoke free environment. All the books I am selling are in the same condition that I bought them in, and the ones that came new in packaging were only unwrapped and placed on my shelf for admiration.
