Unfortunately this book has seen better days and has water/coffee/tea damage mainly too the back of the book which doesn't really affect the main text papers but spoils the books appearance. The main damage is from pages 1070 to 1200 which is from Appendix A, Index until the last few blank pages. These pages are still readable but damaged.

All of Text pages are printed on India Paper which is very thin about 40gsm and shows wear and well read .

Heavy marks to the cloth front and back, the book is without dust jacket, as issued, in the original publishers box with a printed paper label. 

The Foil Blocking on the front cover and Spine is worn and shows a well read book.

The box is in fair condition, showing only some scrubbing or splitting which is common to such a fragile item.

An lovely book despite the damaged pages.


Ninth Impression of the Deluxe India Paper Edition. Three volumes in one, comprising 'The Fellowship of the Ring', 'The Two Towers' and 'The Return of the King'. Octavo, original black cloth titled and ruled in gold on spine panel, front panel blocked with a design by Tolkien in gold, silver and green, black & white 'marbled' endpapers, page edges speckled green. Printed on wove India paper. 1193 pp, two folding maps.

Deluxe India Paper Edition, First issued in 1969. The first three impressions of this edition were issued in a slipcase, the later impressions came in a box with a paper label printed in red & black.
The text follows that of the Second Revised edition, including the Foreword, Appendixes and Index.
The binding decoration, of a Númenórean throne with 'Elendil' in tengwar, is a simplfied version of a design made by Tolkien for the binding of 'The Return of the King' but never used.
