A wonderfull set of books. Truely deserves to go to a good home and an owner who appreciate it.

Rare Limited Edition Boxed Set 1963, Lord of the Rings (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and the Return of the King) by J R R Tolkien

Extremely rare limited edition boxed set produced in 1963 by George Allen & Unwin. Fewer than 1000 copies were released.

Slipcase artwork is by Pauline Baynes.

 Fellowship of the Ring is a 13th impression, the Two Towers and Return of the King are both 10th impressions.

 Each volume has a fold-out map in the back. Bound in black buckram, with bevelled edges. Each volume has a silk bookmark ribbon and all edges gilt.

Spine of Two Towers has faded. Previous owner's inscription on front free endpaper of The Fellowship of the Ring.

 Tops and bottoms of spines of books show signs of wear.

 Slipcase has some rubbing to the corners and edges,and some scuff marks on the end panel but otherwise is in extremely good condition.

Newspaper article by Roger Lancelyn Green about Lord of the Rings and probably contemporaneous with publication of this set has been laid in.

 Item  is listed somewhere else as well and might have to end listing suddenly if its no longer available.

Books are been listed as honestly as possible.Generally set is in very good condition with signs of ageing as you would expect so Pl do not expect brand new books. Read  detailed listing carefully before you bid.

I am sure new owner will cherish this  remarkable boxed set.

 Happy Bidding
