Special Attributes:

1st Edition


The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien

The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King and The Hobbit

Ballantine 1st printings of all books 1965.

Rare 1st printings of the Paperbacks with The Lord of the Rings housed in the rare 1st issued green slipcase. All books near fine with no marks, inscriptions and only a slight crease to the spines see pictures. Tight and a wonderful set published as a result of the Ace editions which were not authorised.

The Hobbit is the very Rare 1st ever printing with the Barbara Remington Cover art which caused such problems as she had not even read the book and designed covers with a Lion and Emu's and pink bulbous flowers. All to Tokiens dismay! This copy looks unread with no creases to the spine and covers bright and in protected film. Best copy seen.

 (See other listing)

A rare set for the collector and look great on any book shelf

No faults no inscriptions and no marks.
