J.R.R. Tolkien
J.R.R .Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, 2nd Edition 1st Printings 1966, VG/VG
London: Allen and Unwin. used with wear and tear. First printings of the 1966 2nd edition. Very good book and jackets. Scuffing to all jackets edges, chipping to corners to corners and ends, minor stains. Fellowship is worse for the wear of the three. Books are clean, bindings tight. Appropriate 2-1 dust jackets with the title printing error on TT and RotK above the price was swapped. They printed over the mistake in black ink and reprinted the titles correctly. This is how you know you have the correct dust jackets and not those from a later printing (beware). Of the second edition revised after the huge popularity of the paperback editions, both the 1st and 2nd printing are most important to a serious collection. Professor Tolkien requested numerous corrections for the second edition, many of which did not happen until the 2nd 1967 printing. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Festival Art and Books (dogfark) [Machynlleth, United Kingdom]
