J.R.R TOLKIEN

The Peoples of Middle Earth

THE HISTORY OF MIDDLE EARTH VOLUME 12

HARPER COLLINS: LONDON 1996

VERY RARE FIRST EDITION/FIRST IMPRESSION

 

I have pleasure in offering for auction a true first edition/first printing of volume 12 in The History of Middle Earth series edited by Christopher Tolkien. This is a U.K version published in 1996 and is NOT a new print. This is the original and rarest of all of the volumes.   

The book has the original boards and looks in new condition with little if any shelf wear. There is no inscription no torn or creased pages and I would be surprised if it has been read.

The dust jacket is unclipped and bears the original price of £25 making it rarer still than the more usual un-priced version.   There are no tears and all edges/corners look in almost mint condition. Some scratch indentations on reverse but otherwise I doubt you will find better elsewhere.

Overall a good example of this very title and one that makes few appearances on ebay.  The only other one I could find is advertised for £500!

 

Any questions please feel free to ask.

Note:  Due to the value of this book I will only send it special delivery, well wrapped. This will protect both the winning bidder and myself for insurance purposes.

Please see my other Tolkien listings.
