Item specifics

Subject: Fiction Printing Year: 1950-Now
Format: Hardback w/Jacket Special Attributes: All 1965 impressions
Fiction Type: Novels Language: English

Offered for sale is a lovely 1965 3-volume set of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, published by George Allen and Unwin:

The Fellowship of the Ring 14th impression 1965 with correct jacket, not price-clipped.

The Two Towers 11th impression 1965 with correct jacket, not price-clipped.

The Return of the King 11th impression 1965 with correct jacket, not price-clipped.

All three volumes were almost certainly purchased together new, the interiors are unmarked, bright and clean throughout, as are the fold-out maps in each. They look unread.

Volume 2 has a small bump at the top of the spine, and volumes 2 and 3 each show a patch of discolouration of the red cloth, it does NOT appear to be damp as the jackets are unaffected - I have uploaded a pic of them to show that there is no bleed-through. There is a little age browning to the jackets, mostly to the spines, as always. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. 

A very nice set for the collector.

Royal Mail International Signed-For within Europe will be £20.40, USA & Australasia £32.80. Please note I do not post to Greece or Italy.

Paypal payment within four days please, thanks.
