TOLKIEN: The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy - RARE FIRST EDITION HB set - (Hobbit)



First Edition

Hardback set 

complete with dustjackets


The Lord Of The Rings



worthy of any collection


would make an excellent addition to any collector / fans collection

The Fellowship Of The Ring - very early 1959 8th Impression - previous owners inscription to FEP, MAP present at back, minor spine lean, dustjacket price clipped and held together with tape as per pics.

The Two Towers - 1962 9th impression - small book shop sticker to REP, MAP present at back, Dustjacket not price clipped, minor spine lean

The Return Of The King - 1962 9th impression - loose spine (from page block), minor spine lean, MAP present, some marks to page edges, FEP,REP.  Dustjacket not price clipped.

PLEASE also refer to the pictures as these form part of the descripiton by showing general condition of books.  Marks, tears, nicks to Dust Jackets.

worth much more than the asking price - priced for a very quick sale

P & P will be £15 (it's a heavy set and actually costs more than this to send)

low starting price, this value only likely to increase with the film release.


  judge for yourself from pics as a picture paints a 1000 words





All my items are carefully wrapped with proof of postage
