The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien, Harper Collins De Luxe Edition, 1992. Attractive book, but not in pristine condition. My guess is it has been stored in an attic at some point - so it smells a bit musty close up and has some damp staining. This is most noticeable on the back board and spine, which are discoloured (faded, not shiny and black). But there's some sense of it in other places such as the interior and exterior of the slipcase. The interior of the book is pretty good and will probably benefit from being stored in a warmer room. And there's no major bumps or wear to report. Overall it's a still a nice book, but would disappoint if you're looking for it to be immaculate. Somebody might know how to restore some of the shine to the back board.
