J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings trilogy: 'The Fellowship Of The Ring', 'The Two Towers' and 'The Return Of The King'. All three are first editions, first impressions, published in 1954, 1954 and 1955 respectively. Condition is progressively better for each book; 'The Fellowship...' has lots of general wear, including heavy wear to the spine and corners, but is holding together; 'The Two Towers' is quite a bit better, although the front board is quite bowed; 'The Return...' is  not bad at all, although again the front board is bowed (as is the rear, to a lesser extent). All three books have some foxing, and the original owner's neat dated inscription on the first page. The maps are present and in good condition, but have become detached from the first two books. I've tried to show the books as clearly as possible in the photos, but please do contact me if you require more information. Overseas bidders - please enquire for postage.
