Offered from my personal collection is this fine copy of The War of the Jewels. I aim to be as critical as possible when listing on here, however it is difficult to fault this copy - it looks factory fresh! The jacket has a great sheen to it with minimal rubbing/ shelf wear. The text block is as new and retains the smell of fresh toner! I think I would struggle to find a better example. Contact me if you require more information. Tolkienbooks.net gives the following info:- The War of the JewelsJ.R.R. TolkienEdited by Christopher Tolkien1st Edition 1994HarperCollinsLondonISBN 0261103148Hardback in dustwrapperNot illustratedHammond Page Ref.: NoneNotes One impression only.According to information supplied by HarperCollins, 4,568 copies of the 1st Impression were printed, 1,544 of which were sold by Book Club Associates.BCA subsequently took two additional batches of 200 copies.Both priced and unpriced dustwrappers have been seen.A Guide to the Contents of this volume can be found in the Articles section. I am looking to sell this within the UK only, however I will consider posting overseas if interested parties contact me well ahead of the auction finishing. Collection in person is welcome ( I live in Teesside). I will consider delivering in person depending on the distance (say, within ten miles of TS23). Alternatively, P&P via Royal Mail Special delivery (signed, tracked and insured) will cost £8.80. I will be listing other Tolkien-related items along with some Terry Pratchett signed items etc. I will aim to discount postage costs for multiple purchases when practicable. Thanks for looking. Shaun.
