THE LORD OF THE RINGS - 3 VOLUMES
by J.R.R. Tolkien
Published by George Allen & Unwin Ltd.. 1956
Very good condition in a good dustwrapper. The timeless classic. By an extraordinary feat of the imagination Tolkien has created and maintained in every detail a new mythology in an invented world. Red cloth, folding map at rear of each book. Top edges red.
First two volumes are dated 1956, Final (Return of the King) is dated 1957. Light bumping to corners. A few marks to outer page edges of volumes. Small damp mark to some page edges of Return of the King. Name in ink to front endpaper of 'The Fellowship of the Ring'. Some page browning; mostly to endpapers. All fold-out maps are present; a couple of small edge-creases and foxspots. Wrappers are still present, but have varying degrees of tears and chips; very browned to spines; other grubby marks and browning to panels; a little loss.
