Condition: Very Good Original in Correct Dust Jacket
The Fellowship Of The Ring By J R R Tolkien George Allen & Unwin Ltd, London: 1957 First Edition - Seventh Impression Nice Book, Correct Original Dust Jacket **Very Scarce & Highly Collectable** I am delighted to offer for auction a good 1st Edition / Seventh Impression of 'The Fellowship Of The Ring' by J R R Tolkien. Published in 1954 this is an early 7th impression from 1957. The book itself is in good order and the jacket, which is original to the book is good+. Complete, original and presenting so well this would be a wonderful addition to any collectors shelf. The book is bound in the publishers original red cloth covers with bright gilt titles to the spine. Having been protected by the DJ i'd say the covers are virtually fine with stunning colours and minimal signs of age or wear bar the odd bumped corner. Internally the book is good with no inscriptions but some old tape mark to the ffep. Clean and bright throughout lacking the map. The outer block is clean with the top edge red as should be. The verso of the main title page shows the correct info to identify this as an early 1st Edition /7th Impression dated 1957. The dust jacket which is original to the book is in very good order with some small splits to the spine tips. Please see my last photo for the jacket laid out flat as this gives a good, accurate view. One or two light marks but generally the colours are super with NO toning which is usually associated with these jackets. Still priced at 21s net. A scarce collectors piece worthy of anyone's shelf. I also have a very nice Return Of The King listed now. This is one of a few dozen collectable and classic books i am listing over the coming weeks so please have a check through my other listings. Swift,secure postage assured Worldwide.
