Great chance to buy both deluxe editions together. 

The Hobbit

This copy is the 3rd impression, published in 1984, of the 1st Deluxe Edition of 1976, with Tolkien line drawings coloured by H. E. Riddett. Complete with  original publisher's box. Bound in black buckram cloth, with gilt artwork on the front boards of Tolkien's 'Green Dragon" gilt stamped in red, silver & gold. Green speckling to page edges. Mottled endpapers. Contents mint. Some very minor handling  marking to front cover only visible in the right light.

The Lord of the Rings

This edition is the ninth impression printed in 1984 printed on India paper making the full three volumes bound into a single copy about 3cms. thick. The black buckram cloth has the Tolkien design depicting the Numenorean throne with Elendil in Tengwar, stamped in gilt. The endpapers are mottled black and grey and all edges are trimmed and speckled in light green. The maps are bound in and in Fine condition - no tears, no loss.  Contents mint. Again, some minor marking to covers in the right light.

Spine and corners as new.

Both complete with labelled tray boxes which display some minor marking and chipping.   On the Lord of the Rings box two corners of the lid and two corners of the box have split but are easily repairable.
