Item specifics

Seller notes: Good condition - see pics for details please.
Subject: Fiction Special Attributes: 1st Edition
Format: Hardback w/Jacket Language: English
Printing Year: 1950-Now
J.R.R. Tolkien - Lord of the Rings Trilogy 1st Edition (1957/59) - all 3 books. Rare.

Lord of the Rings Trilogy - 1st Editions - all 3 books.  In hardback with original dust jackets.

The Fellowship of the Ring  (Part 1) 1959,  First Edition,  Eighth Impression
The Two Towers (Part 2), 1957, First Edition, Fifth Impression.  Has small personal inscription in ink from 1959 on inside front page. 

The Return of the King (Part 3),  1959,  First Edition,  Fifth Impression

Very clean, no tears or folded pages, no marks apart from what can be seen in the pics. Some slight tears to the edges of the jacket on the spines, but less then you would expect from books of this age. Small personal inscription in ink on inside front page of 2nd book & small mark on inside cover of 3rd book - this is clearly shown in the pics below. Usual discolouration of jackets.

All three books contain folding maps of Middle Earth inside their back covers & these maps are in very good condition. 

From the personal collection of my late Aunt & Uncle, academics who looked after their books.  I am also selling a very clean 1959 (2nd Edition) copy of The Hobbit - please click on "See other items". 

Free UK postage. Please contact me first for a postage quote for any other country.  Cash on collection would be perfect & would allow inspection by the buyer.
