Summary: This box set comprises two paperback books relating to J.R.R. Tolkien, author of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" amongst others. The details of the two books are :-

1) J.R.R. Tolkien - A Biography

By Humphrey Carpenter

Dated 1978 (First published in 1977)

ISBN 0 04 928039 2

Approx 288 pages

This is the first paperback edition of this authorised biography.

By Robert Foster

Dated 1978 (First published in 1971)

ISBN 0 04 803001 5

Approx 450 pages

This is an alphabetical list of the characters, peoples, races and places etc which appear in the Middle-Earth series of books written by Tolkien .

Condition: The books are in excellent condition with sound binding and clean, unmarked pages, apart from a name and date (July 1979) on the endpaper in the biography. The card covers are fine with no creasing to the corners and only signs of very light wear. The slip case is also in good condition although the spine and the edge of the front of the box are badly faded (see scan). As a result the titles on the spine have faded to white.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Please be aware of the following conditions regarding postage and packing.

For heavier books (i.e. over 500gm packaged weight), I offer a cheaper P&P service, which will make use of Royal Mail Second Class rates and use less expensive or recycled packaging materials, where appropriate. I will still ensure that books are packed well and I will continue to offer First Class P&P and will let the buyer choose which service they require. I always obtain a proof of posting receipt from the post office.

Please also be aware of the following additional terms and conditions regarding postage and insurance :-

I will only post to the United Kingdom.

Single purchases. At my discretion and at my expense I may send single items via the Royal Mail Recorded Signed For service. I will inform the buyer before posting the item if this is the case.

Multiple purchases. I will combine postage for multiple purchases. However, two or more items posted as one package will ONLY be sent via the Royal Mail Recorded Signed For service. I will bear the additional cost for this service. Please wait for my invoice which will contain revised cost options for combined postage.

Please ask if you have any questions regarding postage and packing for this item.
