I bought this book on abe yesterday right after it has been listed. I see the seller also listed it on ebay, and that the listing has also been completed on ebay. I hope the seller will priorize my purchase as it has been done 1 day earlier the ebay listing ...

Can someone explain to me the significance of this book outside of it being from oxford? Personal library of tolkien?

EDIT: Nvm I see it has a writing from tolkien from 1926. $66 seems kind of cheap for such an item, don't you think?

nice enough set, no slip case. Fellowship's dust jacket looks crunched on the spine. The boards looks like someone spilt something on them on top there.

I've been looking for this exact set but I want one with the slip case.

Thanks Éarendel !
Yes, it seems very fine. Sadly it's missing its dust jacket, but I guess it is really hard to find with a DJ.
It's sufficiently difficult to find it not being an ex-lib, and I 've seen only one *not ex-lib* copy in the last 3 years, with gilt titles completely faded on the spine, and at £500. Looking for it for years !
Also like the story behind it :
"Ownership signature on front flyleaf of Father Karl G. Schroeder (1910-99), long-time English professor known for Chaucer and Shakespeare courses at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa (1938-94); Schroeder received bachelor and master's degrees from Oxford -- the "Campion Hall / Oxford" below his signature notes his residency as a student there in the 1930s"
