JRR Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - First Edition set in 3 volumes. Comprising: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King. Published in 1960 by Readers Union with permission of George Allen and Unwin Ltd, London. This is an unusual and beautiful set of books! I seem to remember hearing somewhere these sets were printed from the original press as the original George Allen and Unwin's editions? Books and wrappers are in very good condition throughout with no inscriptions, the jackets do show some small wear and tear but they are not price clipped and protected in archival clear acetate. The maps at the rear are also in great condition. The front of the jackets feature a line drawing of Sauron's eye which a unique feature and was only used for the Readers Union books. Overall this is a nice set of books that display beautifully on your shelf. Will be well wrapped and sent as signed for postage, Please take a look at my other items for sale.
