Though traditionally known as the first book in the series, it is the second book in chronological order, and its prequel "The Magician's Nephew" is currently marketed as Book 1 due to a decision by the publisher to renumber the books according to internal chronology rather than publication date..

FLEMING IAN
1954. (New York; McCall Corporation May 1954). A US Softback Magazine Publication. Volume 99, No. 1. Contains a 39-page extract from Live and Let Die together with a superb, colour-illustrated front cover (by John Walton) sub-titled Voodoo Spy Novel: “Live and Let Die”. Cheap paper inevitably and pages lightly browned. Minor closed tears to the right hand edge of the front cover and some creasing to the covers and a touch of loss to the head and tail of the spine still a VG copy in full colour, full wrap-around pictorial wraps. Inside the magazine is clean without any writing. This magazine extract of Live and Let Die is important in that it is the first printing of Live and Let Die in the USA. The UK hardback first edition of Live and Let Die was published on May 5, 1954 and it was not published in the USA, as a first edition, until 1955. It is impossible to tell what date in May 1954 this edition of Bluebook Magazine was published but it is, irrefutably, the first US publication of Live and Let Die. Live and Let Die appears on pp. 88-128 of the magazine, printed in double columns, and the magazine also contains work by P.G.Wodehouse (The Ordeal Of Bingo Little), Richard Matheson and John D. MacDonald. Rare. Only the second copy that I have seen. Photographs/scans available upon request.

Dr. Seuss
Publisher: Random House Publishing Date: 1954 Book Condition: Very Good Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good Special Attributes: First Edition, First Printing First State Quarto, First Edition, First Printing. Copyright 1954, published by Random House. 250 price to front flap. Younger & Hirsch 88. In addition, this is the elusive First State which has titles to rear page and not on the copyright page. Boards with titles to copyright page are not first printings. DJ and boards in wonderful condition apart from open tear to top near spine, housed in mylar. A tremendous addition to a Seuss collection, becoming increasingly harder to find. Synopsis: Horton hears a cry for help from a speck of dust, and spends much of the book trying to protect the infinitesimal creatures who live on it from the derision and trickery of other animals, who think their elephant friend has gone quite nutty. But worse is in store: an eagle carries away the clover in which Horton has placed the life-bearing speck, and "let that small clover drop somewhere inside / of a great patch of clovers a hundred miles wide!" Horton wins in the end, after persuading the "Who's" to make as much noise as possible and prove their existence. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]

1954. A highly important grouping containing revelatory materials about the completion of Berg's final opera Lulu, including two autograph letters in German from Helene Berg, Alban's widow, written to the biographer Dr. Hans Ferdinand Redlich, on September 14 and 30, 1954; a large envelope for safety deposit in which these letters had been sealed with wax and the signatures of Redlich's widow in 1969; and a shorter postcard, typed and signed, from Helene Berg to George Perle in 1970. All present items from the collection of Perle, noted American composer and music theorist, who had founded the Alban Berg Society with Stravinsky and others in 1968. In fine condition overall; letters 6 pp. total, 8 1/4 inches × 11 3/4 (21 × 30 cm); envelope 10 × 15 inches (25 × 38 cm), with three large wrinkles across and worn edges; postcard 4 × 6 inches (10 × 15 cm) with stamp-deckled edges.In this remarkable correspondence, Alban Berg's widow explains the circumstances surrounding this famously unfinished work, the orchestration of the third and final act of Lulu, which was left incomplete upon Alban's death in 1935. In the earlier of the present letters, written on September 14, 1954, Helene replies to Dr. Redlich, who had sent a draft of his influential book, Alban Berg: Versuch einer Würdigung (Vienna, 1957), trans., abridged as Alban Berg: The Man and His Music (New York, 1957).

The dust jacket is in good condition 6th impression which is often the case with Tolkien books early surplus books where given new jackets at times, it has been protected in removable protective paper and film, is firmly bound. The book is in a good condition. The pages are in good condition and the fold-out map inside back cover is intact. The Two Towers, second impression 1955 published by George Allen & Unwin Ltd. The dust jacket is in reasonable condition but needs it's protective archive film/acid free paper protector to hold the front and back together. I considered getting it professionally repaired but the preference from collectors these days is to keep any defects rather than improve the appearance but lose the originality. The Return of the King is a First Edition FIRST IMPRESSION! published 1955 by George Allen & Unwin Ltd. The jacket on this one is in much better condition but does have chipping/loss to the lower spine area in particular. You wont find early sets like this at this kind of price for long. When the Amazon Tolkien shows start getting hyped it is expected that rare Tolkien books (and you don't get much rarer than books printed the very first year The Lord of The Rings was published!) will jump in value as they did when the films came out.

Tolkien, J.R.R
George Allen and Unwin 1954-55, London. First editions, first states of each title comprising the The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Octavo, 3 volumes, bound in full red morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front panels, folding maps. In fine condition. Housed in a custom slipcase. An exceptional set, rare and desirable in first state. The Lord of the Rings began as a sequel to Tolkien's 1937 children's fantasy novel The Hobbit, but eventually developed into a much larger work. It was written in stages between 1937 and 1949, much of it during World War II in letters to his son, "and finally, having polished it to his own satisfaction, published it as a trilogy from 1954 to 1955, a volume at a time, impatiently awaited by a growing audience It is considered] one of this century’s lasting contributions to that borderland of literature between youth and age. It seems destined to become this century’s contribution to that select list of books which continue through the ages to be read by children and adults with almost equal pleasure." (Eyre, 134-35).

The present interpretation has been rather freely adapted by Ben Shahn from the English translation of Maurice Samuel and other sources."
