J R R TOLKIEN

The Lord Of The Rings: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING; THE TWO TOWERS; THE RETURN OF THE KING. J. R. R. Tolkien. The 3 Volume Set complete tith original unclipped dust-wrappers and slipcase. FIRST PRINTING OF THE SECOND (REVISED) EDITION George Allen and Unwin, London, 1966.  George Allen & Unwin, London, 1966. First printings of the revised (second) editions of each volume, with the clear wording on the jackets identifying them as ‘REVISED EDITION’. All three are just about near fine books in complete very good dust jackets and a very good slipcase. As well as numerous and extensive revisions and corrections, Tolkien contributed a new foreword to the first volume. (This new edition was necessary to correct American copyright law, which left the trilogy in the public domain; an out of copyright paperback was published by Ace Books in 1965.) The fold-out maps at the rear of each volume are neat and look rarely used. The red cloth boards with gilt lettering to spines has been kept bright by the jackets.  The red stained top edges are unfaded.  The jackets are not price-clipped, and the corrected black cancellation is on"The Return Of The King", as called for. A little wear on the jacket folds/edges, with a the most being on "The Return of the King" There are no former owner names or internal marks in the texts. This is a beautiful set of Tolkien’s preferred corrected revised text, nicely matched. An important edition, and one that Tolkien himself was enthusiastic about. He had feared that the mistakes uncovered after the first issue would be too expensive to correct, but as the years passed the book became such an enormous success he could set to and rewrite. A great set and in very very nice condition. Complete with the original very rare slipcase.

Well over 2 kilos when packed so international shipping will be very expensive
