The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings, Deluxe Edition, by George Allen & Unwin.
This is the 1st impression of the one volume De Luxe India Paper Edition Hard cover of the Lord of the Rings, published by Allen & Unwin, London, in 1969.
All 3 books in one volume: The Fellowship of the Ring, Two Towers, and the Return of the King the thin india paper makes the three books only an inch thick.
Printed on India Paper (commonly known as Bible paper), Paper is wafer thin and very delicate. It is bound in black buckram cloth with a stunning front cover depicting Tolkien's design of the Numenorean throne with 'Elendil' in tengwar, stamped on upper cover in gilt, silver and green (often found on the front of the Return of the King) with gilt titles on spine and the front. Inner cover is grey speckled paper. The endpapers are speckled in green, and there are fold-out maps at the back. The whole thing is housed in the original publisher's slipcase, only the 1st & 2nd impressions were issued with the slipcase.
Book Condition: Very Good. Slipcase condition: Some wear, and marks taped edges but has protected the book for over 40 years. There are about 4 pages that have straightened wrinkles, and the one large map inside make the binding slightly unstable, the binding has some loosening in the back between the appendices. Size - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
This is such an exquisite book, so delicate and ornate. I have treasured this edition since 1969 when I bought it, but now it has chosen to go to a new owner, is that you?
