Fiction Subject:


The Letters of J R R Tolkien.

This hardback book is a first edition and first UK printing with it being published in 1981 by George Allen & Unwin. It is a collection of J r R Tolkien's letters that were written to various publishers etc regarding his works and it gives a great insight into his early novels.

The book is in good condition and comes housed in its original dust jacket which is not priced. There is some very light creasing to the edges of the jacket and to the head and foot of the spine. Corners are a little rubbed and bumped. There is also a small closed tear to the top right hand corner of the jacket (see last photo) and some minor marking to the jacket in general but it is otherwise good.

The book is free from writing or inscriptions of any kind.

A good example of this rare and collectable book that would sit well on any bookshelf.

International buyers welcome.

Please feel free to check out the other books I have listed.

I am happy to combine shipping if more than one is purchased in order to keep costs down for buyers.
