There’s a copy of that first softcover edition of The Two Towers (1960) currently on Tradera: ... tr-hobbit-ringarnas-herre

I’d say it’s priced a little high, but it’s a re-listing and didn’t get any bids first time around.

I was inspired by recent discussions, of Inger Edelfeldt's beautiful illustrations, to write to her to say how much these mean, and also to ask if she wouldn't mind signing my 1980 FOTR.

I'm pleased to say that she very kindly did so

How do you find such volumes?

You'll be able to find a lot on these sites: (like a Swedish Abebooks) (like a Swedish eBay) (another one like Abebooks, but a bit more slanted to book-selling businesses rather than private sellers)

You can change the language on the first one, for the other two I think it will go to the English page.

If you need any help with searching or anything else, feel free to send me a message.
