Tolkien by Billett Potter. The slipcase is in excellent condition with no damage, and is still in the original publisher's protective factory shrinkwrap, which is torn in various places - however this has no bearing on the condition of the box set contained within. All of the books are unread, unopened, and will be in 'as-new' condition. Being never taken out of the slipcase, I will not do so now;- this will be the buyer's decision to luxuriate on as to if they wish to open it up. Be in no doubt, this slipcase and box set is very rare in any state, but extremely rare in this most fantastic condition.Includes the 4th Edition 1978 of The Hobbit and the 1st Edition, 4th Impression of The Silmarillion and 2nd Edition, 1978 Impressions of The Lord of the Rings. 11th impression Fellowship of the Rings, 10th impression Two Towers and 10th impression Return of the King.All five books are in as unread condition.Highly collectable, this is a very rare set for any Tolkien fan's collection, particularly-so in this amazing unopened, and mint state.
