in 1983 I bought a book @ the oxford bookstore, it is T L O R de luxe edition, hardcover pub. by george allen & unwin. The cover design is the same as the JRR drew for the original RoTK it is embossed gold spine is rised and embossed, the paper it is printed on is Very fine with like a blue green paint splatter design on the tops. It has never been read it is still in the original box with tissue paper. I need to move this asap fore I am in dire straights.
