A very nice, scarce boxed/slipcased 3 volume set of "Lord of the Rings" by J R R Tolkien. Published in 1978. Second edition. 9th and 10th impressions. In very good condition but with some signs of use and age. The slipcase itself is in very good condition. Cloth top and bottom. The front panel has slight uneven fading. A few small edge 'nicks'. "The Fellowship of the Ring" in very good and firm condition throughout. Minor rubbing to the corners of the spine. Slightly different cloth used from the other two volumes. This is correct and as issued by the publisher. Dust jacket is complete, NOT price clipped. Minimal edge rubbing, very light fade at the spine. Overall in very good condition. "The Two Towers". In very good condition. There is the mildest watermark to the top of the rear board just touching the spine. Hard to notice. Dust jacket is complete and not price clipped. Spine discoloured and with a tiny chip. Rear panel a little creased at top edge and the inside has mild watermark corresponding with the one on the board. Very minor. Overall in very good condition. "The Return of the King". In very good condition throughout. Dust jacket is complete and not price clipped. Spine has the very mildest fade, hardly noticeable, and a very small chip. Minimal edge rubbing. Overall in very good condition. A nice example of one of the scarcer boxed sets. Heavy, weighing 2.5kg
