Today I became the proud owner of a Huddersfield with original dust jacket. (If it looks familiar to this forum, it’s because it is.)

Been looking to complete this set in decent condition a good while. First printings from 1980 this swedish LotR set is one of the most beautiful paperback sets i know of thanks to the amazing Inger Edelfeldt. The FotR (with nazgul in the shire) in particular is a candidate for favourite PB. Printed in GB by Richard Clay Ltd.
