UK First Edition Uniform Set
**Scarce and Collectable**
Up for auction I am offering a genuine First Edition set of Tolkien`s masterpiece and arguably the greatest trilogy ever written `The Lord Of The Rings`. This is a full uniform set of First Edition/ Later Printings all from 1963. The books have lived together since new and all have retained the original dust jackets.
Fellowship Of The Ring. First Ed / Thirteenth Imp 1963. Bound in its original red cloth covers this is a very good example. Clean unmarked binding sitting nice and square. Internally clean with the original map attached as called for. Correct info to the verso of the title page to show this to be an early First Edition. The jacket is very clean and un-faded as it has been protected by laminate. The correct original jacket for the book that has not been price clipped. Overall Very Good.
The Two Towers. First Ed / Tenth Imp 1963. Bound in its original red cloth covers this is again a very good example. Clean, bright unmarked covers with bright gilt titles. Internally fine throughout with the map attached as called for. The dust jacket is correct and original to the book and is in very good condition. Sunning to the spine which is common else a very handsome and clean example with no loss, unclipped. Overall very good.
The Return Of The King. First Ed / Tenth Imp 1963. Bound in its original red cloth covers this is a good example. There is some crushing to the top of the spine and the front board has bowed slightly else clean and bright. Internally very good throughout. The dust jacket is again correct and original to the book. A nice clean example with sunning to the spine and some splitting to the spine tip. Unclipped. Overall good
This is just one of a number of scarce collectable book I am offering at the moment so please have a browse through my other items.
Happy to post worldwide.
