The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R Tolkien, George Allen and Unwin, 1957 First edition 7th Impression, 423pp
Here is a very rare first edition of The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring.
Complete with iconic cream dust jacket (eighty impression - may have been published with this) and fold-out map at rear, this is the first edition 7th impression.
Only a few thousand of these would have been printed and to see one in such excellent condition - especially the bright boards - is very rare indeed.
Tolkien is known as the modern father of fantasy and his Hobbit is one of the best selling books of all time.
With new Hobbit films coming and the value of Tolkien books set to rise, this is an ideal time to buy.
In Very Good condition.
D/J poor with tearing, age wear etc
Covers good with general wear
Good inside with general wear and use but overall nice
Light signs of wear but overall a rare find in good condition.
