Item specifics

Special Attributes:

1st Edition

WOW!  a rare chance to get an early first edition set of The Lord of The Rings Trilogy 
including a TRUE FIRST IMPRESSION of the Return of The King.  Also included in the listing is a true first paperback edition 1st impression from 1961 (the first time The Hobbit appeared in paperback form).

So... what have we got:

The Hobbit - 1961 paperback - first edition (paperback), first impression.  A rare find!

The Fellowship of The Ring - 1955 4th impression (first published in 1954) - a rare early impression.  Condition as per pics, split along the spine, marks and bumps to cover,brown spots to pages and the remains of a sticker to fep.  Map present at back.

The Two Towers - 1959 sixth impression. again see pics.  marks and bumps to cover, minor spine lean. Map present at back.

The Return of the King - 1955 FIRST impression - very rare!!!!  - this is an ex-libris book with stamps/remains of stickers and has been rebound as per pics.  Map present at back has some brown tape marks on it along with some tape repair.  some spine lean.  still a great chance to grab a first edition first impression.

Price includes Postage and Packaging.  It's a heavy set.
