The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R Tolkien, Houghton Mifflin, 1963 edition, 423pp
I currently have far too many books in my collection and so I am beginning to downsize.
As part of this downsizing I am selling this early copy of 'The Fellowship of the Ring'.
J.R.R Tolkien is known the world over as the father of modern fantasy and this book is the first of his famous Lord of the Rings trilogy.
With the original gilt decoration to the spine and the fold out map at rear, this edition is a very nice, early copy.
This is a particularly rare edition as it is an American print and features the obscure blue covers.
A rare and lovely edition.
Generally good condition
Period inscription, odour of smoke and generally light wear throughout
You might think it a silly question but, at the bottom of the copyright page, does it say this?
"Printed in Great Britain in 11 on 12 point imprint type
by Jarrold @ Sons Ltd, Norwich."
A: Hi there You are quire right - the book does indeed have that written at the bottom of the details page! I hope this helps, All the best, Chris
