We are pleased to offer an outstanding set of the 1960 Readers Union,
Lord of the Rings.When these arrived to
our shipping department our first reaction was they looked freshly prints,
books and dust jackets! These are truly as-new, no marks, no flaws, un-read.
Likely bought brand new and kept in a collection.Originally 3000 sets were printed, but we
have never seen a set in this new condition.
This set comprises the same sheets from the 1960 Allen and Unwin books
where extra sheets were printed just for RU. These were bound in their own
bindings with their own dust wrappers.
Rarely do collectors get the chance to acquire an important edition in
such true fine condition. Don’t delay!
Please note, I'm happy to email over all the photos
you need to make an informed decision. 100% refund in any case if you are not
happy. Feel free to contact me with any questions, I like to answer customer
questions and don’t think this automated service is service at all! email@example.com or visit festivalartandbooks.com
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. “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!
Please note, the free shipping option can take a week. If you want your item sooner, please choose one of the paid options.
Important- Shipping Times this Xmas
We do not share the Royal mail’s exuberance on
shipping packages. Namely it’s the risk of them getting lost, not simply
delayed over Christmas and New Year time. Items ordered for UK shipping this week, 9th-15th
December, should arrive on time under the free option. Order now! Overseas
customers should opt for the Fast Service at extra cost to be sure it arrives
in time for Xmas if it’s a gift. Next week 16th-22nd, UK
orders should select the Fast service option if you want it in time, although
we can’t guaranty it if ordered later in the week. All orders received after December 20th
will not ship until January 6th, again to reduce the risk of them
getting lost in the mail. Most of our items are rare. You should still order them
as soon as possible before they sell elsewhere. Thank you for your understanding.
