Condition: An extremely rare and hard to come by edition of The Lord of the Rings, limited to only 250 copies & signed by Alan Lee (the illustrator). Book is in Good to Very Good condition with wear to slipcase. Please see photos for full condition. Condition notes: (Slipcase) Wear to slipcase including fraying at some of the edges & some accumulated dust from decades on a bookshelf. There appears to be a bit of fading on the top panel. Some shelf wear also. (Book) Some cosmetic wear to leather binding as seen in photos. Some accumulated dirt and dust on the cloth. Some wrinkles on the top corner the pages around page 40, and some minor creasing on several other pages. Some minor wear to the silver gilding. The pages are beautiful and bright with no strange smells. Overall, the book is in Good condition for its age and is a highly sought after collectible. Using a specialized book cleaner such as Absorene would likely restore it to a full "Very Good" condition.

About me: After receiving one too many damaged books from Amazon, eBay, and other large sellers I decided to start selling some Tolkien books from my personal collection but ensuring to photograph them in a comprehensive manner so as to present you (the buyer) with a clear idea of what you are purchasing. I endeavor to present each book as accurately as possible so that you don't need to be concerned with wondering whether the book you ordered is the same one that will arrive, as is the case with many sellers using only stock photos and a vague description. I package each book securely so that not even the fires of Mount Doom could damage it. Ok, I can't guarantee that last part but you get the idea. UK: Shipping is free for you and will be via Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For. European Union: I charge a flat fee of £50 which covers standard international shipping with tracking and insurance Other countries: Please contact me and we can discuss shipping options
