Allen & Unwin, 1954, 1955, 1955 2nd impression set with original matching jackets. Note thse could not have been purchased as a set at one time,  but one at a time on each book's new release. Given the uniform wear, these have been kept together a long time. Arguably more scarce than a 1st/1st set given the original jackets. Tattering to jacket spine ends, partially split on the cover'spine seams and corners, but remarkable good overall. RotK rear cover seam split along most of the spine rear cover seam, but attached with acid free restoration tape. Books have only minor wear. Note, per photos, FotR is shorter that than the other two books. This was an error on the 2 & 3rd impressions which was corrected by the 4th printing.  I've seen a couple of these sets in 12 years as a dealer, this is the nicest overall condition I've seen. Please contact markfaith@festivalartandbooks.com  or visit our website- festivalartandbooks.com for more information

Restoration and other fake dust jackets

These dust jacket have NOT been restored or altered in any way.  We do not deal in facsimile or restored jackets. While a  future buyer may decide to have it restored, we advise against it if they intend to resell it someday. A book without an original jacket is worth a fraction of one with. A restored jacket is worth a considerable less, even if the work was very minor.  The addition of acid free tape to avoid further damage on a tear is not restoration especially if it can be removed.  “Restoring” is nothing more than a deception to make something damaged look artificially new. It’s a fake and most serious collectors and dedicated fans want an item as close to its original condition, any warts and all.  It adds some value to a jacket-less book if the restoration is very, very minor, but nothing close to a book with an original unrestored jacket. Don’t be deceived into buying restored jackets as buyers now trying to sell their restore jackets now have been. A fake is fake! The rule is simply the closer to the original condition, the better and more valuable. Adding anything artificial, even if undetectable, seriously reduces the value to serious collectors. Don’t waste your money with false economy. Hold out and buy the best you can find!
