J.R.R. Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings, 1961 set, w/Slipcase. The Fellowship of the Ring, Two Towers, Return of the King
George Allen and Unwin, London. Allen and Unwin 1961, 60, 61 impressions 10, 7, 7 A nice set with original slipcase. These early impressions are increasingly hard to find without much more wear and tear, especially to the dust jackets. This set has more wear to the dust jackets than previous sets I've sold, but are becoming so rare its best to secure one while you still can. The books are near fine, all the aging is to the jackets, particularly Fellowship of the Ring which has more wear to the jacket than TT and RotK. All three books have dark "tanning" to jacket spines which in fact is from damp and mold, not sunshine, thus you can see what appears as water stains. Tattering to jacket spine ends and closed tears. Books are clean, bindings tight. Slipcase is worse for wear and stained to the label, often the case, but still solid As good set with slipcase as you are likely to find for the price which we can say with confidence as specialist in Tolkien books. More photos to come. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Festival Art and Books [Aberdyfi, GWYNE, United Kingdom]
