The Lord of the Rings 7 Volume Set in Slipcase
Tolkien, J[ohn] R[onald] R[euel]

HarperCollins, London, 2001. Trade Paperbacks. Book Condition: Vg, in Good slipcase (bumped to the corners). First Editions, 1st printing of the British paperback edition of the 7 Volume movie tie-in set in matching slip-case. In his "Note on the Text" written in 1993 and reprinted here, Douglas A. Anderson observes that "The Lord of the Rings is often erroneously called a trilogy, when it is in fact a single novel, consisting of 6 books plus appendices, sometimes published in three books." Here, the three books, as we have come to know them, are divided into two books each with the following sub-titles: Book One - The Ring Sets Out; Book Two - The Ring Goes South; Book Three - The Treason of Isengard; Book Four - The Ring Goes East; Book Five - The War of the Ring; Book Six - The End of the Third Age; Book Seven - Appendices (numbered volume 7 here). Each of the 7 books is a first printing with number string down to 1. They are in very nice condition with sharp corners. The back cover of each features a different still from the Peter Jackson films. Minor rubbing to the spine ends. Slipcase with a little scuffing, one corner bumped. Weight approx 1.5kg when packed. RARE as the complete First edition thus set.

MY GRADINGS

New: A new book, never used.

As New (AN): Although a used book, it should appear unread with no flaws, just as when it was sold new.

Fine (F): Should have no flaws, a perfect copy of a used book. Mint: Another term for Fine.

Near Fine (NF): May show a small flaw, such as shelf wear, but nearly perfect and unread.

Very Good (VG): The broadest category for used books, this describes any average used book. May have small flaws, and has probably been read, but should appear overall clean and attractive.

Good (G): Will probably have significant wear or damage, although is still intact. Suitable for reading, but not necessarily a good gift copy. The old saying in bookselling is "good ain't good."

Fair: Another term for Poor or Reading Copy: Heavily worn or damaged, a poor book will be readable but not attractive.

Binding Copy: This will be the complete pages of the book, but the binding has been broken or damaged to the point it will need professional rebinding
