J.R.R .Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, 2nd Edition 1st Printings 1966 These were purchased from Peter Harrington in London and they have been beautifully rebound by the Chelsea Bindery. They have been read one time by me. A beautiful set. Allen & Unwin, 1st printings of the 1966 2nd edition. After the huge popularity of the 1965 paperback editions, the 1st and 2nd printing of the second hardback Are highly collectable. Tolkien requested numerous corrections built up for the second edition, first printing, which did not happen. There was even errors on the dust jackets. He insisted on another 2nd reprint right away. The 1967 text edition, with minor corrections, is the version we read today. This is the more rare 1st printing. Shipping in the US is included.
