 Lord of the Rings De Luxe Edition ~

 J R R Tolkien ~ Box Cased 1979 Edition

Not sure what to say regarding condition ~ the book was never read (i had a pb copy) ,though carefully looked over a few times and put in safe storage.

The outer box has no splits etc but paper label has some marks - see pic. The book has a small area on lower front edge of cover where condensation(?) has dulled the covers sheen - again see pic.

  My opinion is that if this sheen could be restored with the appropriate polish ? / or other solution ? 

the book would be Very Good+ or better.

The book internally appears unread, though the gossamer thin 'elven' paper of the first 'short' title page has some vertical creases, these were there when book was received as 'new' .

Finally slight marking inside box which corresponds with dulled area of cover, and slight rubbing of publishers name in gilt on spine - title and author gilding on spine appear excellent.

See picture for condition :

Clearing loft at old family home -

all books are used and a bit 'musty' smelling, some very well used.


 All books in acceptable or better condition

Collection not possible - books are not at home address.
