The first three books in the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. I am far from an expert on the printing history of this series. It would appear to me that book one is an early printing and book 2 and 3 may be the first US printing but you can decide by the title/copyright pages. Included are: The Fellowship of the Ring (no copyright date, bookplate affixed to inside cover, map is detached in the rear and laid in, a few minor stains on front cover) The Two Towers (1955, matching dates on title and copyright pages with no additional printings noted, bookplate affixed to front end page, map intact) The Return of the King (1956 on title page, no additional printings noted on copyright page, bookplate affixed to inside cover) All three books are in surprisingly good condition with no major flaws to note. Please see pictures for a better determination. They all have a used bookplate attached to the inside cover, but aside from that, nothing else to report. There are no dust jackets with these books. Free media mail shipping.
