LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY

THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RINGS & THE TWO TOWERS & RETURN OF THE KING

[SOME INTRODUCTORY PICTURES OF HOW THEY LOOK AS A SET [TRIO] OF BOOKS:

ALL STILL HAVE THE RED TOPSTAIN:

LOOK FANTASTIC WITH THEIR ACCOMPANYING ORIGINAL DUSTJACKETS:

WILL LOOK GREAT ON ANY SHELF:

ALL BOOKS ARE SECOND EDITIONS

ALL BOOKS PUBLISHED BY GEORGE ALLEN AND UNWIN

[1] THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING:

[second edition and second impression 1967]

ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET: The original dustjacket accompanies this book. It states on the inner flap: 'Second Edition' and it retains price of 25s net. Overall, looks great but it does have a few small chips to the top and bottom of the spine and corners. The lighter area on the rear panel is quite soiled. I have now put it into a removable plastic sleeve.

 

BOARDS: Red cloth with gold/gilt lettering to the spine. Few small soil marks. Slight lean to book. Scuffed and frayed round the extremities. Page block is tight within.

INNER BOOK: Tape residue to front and rear inner boards. Occasional fox spot and browning to page edges. 

423 pages are clean and tightly bound.

Map to rear is present. [small closed edge tear].  

Small brown stain to last few pages at the bottom and on the map.

[2] THE TWO TOWERS:

[second edition and first impression from 1966]

ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET: The original dustjacket accompanies this book. It states on the inner flap: 'Second Edition' and it retains price of 25s net. Overall, looks great but it does have a few small chips to the top and bottom of the spine and corners, and a few small scratches to the front panel. The lighter area on the rear panel is quite soiled. I have now put it into a removable plastic sleeve.

 

BOARDS: Red cloth with gold/gilt lettering to the spine. Few small soil marks. Slight lean to book. Scuffed and frayed round the extremities. Page block is tight within.

 

INNER BOOK: Tape residue to front and rear inner boards. Occasional fox spot and browning to page edges. 

352 pages are clean and tightly bound.

Map to rear is present. [small closed edge tear].

[3] THE RETURN OF THE KING:

[second edition and first impression from 1966]

ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET: The original dustjacket accompanies this book. It states on the inner flap: 'Second Edition' and it retains price of 25s net. Overall, looks great but it does have a few small chips to the top and bottom of the spine and corners, and a few small scratches to the front panel. The lighter area on the rear panel is quite soiled. There are also a few closed edge tears and creasing. I have sellotaped a couple of folds on the rear of this dustjacket so it sits better in the removable plastic sleeve. Small white mark beside the big eye. 

 

BOARDS: Red cloth with gold/gilt lettering to the spine. Few small soil marks. Slight lean to book. Scuffed and frayed round the extremities. Page block is tight within.

INNER BOOK: 440 pages are all tightly bound. Occasional fox spot and browning to page edges.

In this, the final part of 'Lord Of The Rings', the pages are split as follows: Story itself consists of 311 pages out of the 440 pages within the book.

There are large Appendices at the rear of this book.

Appendix A runs from page 313 to page 362 and goes into great detail about 'ANNALS OF THE KINGS AND RULERS'.

Appendix B runs from page 363 to 378 and goes into detail about 'THE TALE OF YEARS'.

 

Appendix C runs from page 379 to 383 and shows you 'FAMILY TREES'.

Appendix D runs from page 384 to page 390 and explains the 'SHIRE CALENDAR'.

Appendix E runs from page 391 to page 404 and explains the 'WRITING AND SPELLING':

'Pronunciation of Words and Names' & 'Writing' 

Appendix F runs from page 405 to page 416 and explains about 'THE LANGUAGES AND PEOPLES OF THE THIRD AGE'.

After the appendices there is a large index to the rear of the book and this runs from page 417 to page 440. It's an amazing index.
