The Road Goes Ever On - A Song Cycle. Music by Donald Swann, Poems by J R R Tolkien.
This hardback book is a true first edition, first printing with it being published in 1967 by Houghton Mifflin Company Boston (the first UK printing of this book was issued a year later so this is the true first)
The book is in very good condition and is free from writing or inscriptions. It comes housed in its original dust jacket which has been neatly price clipped.
There is some light wear to the jacket at the head and foot of the spine and corners and a small closed tear to the front of the jacket but the jacket has now been covered in a clear protective cover which will ultimately reduce the likelihood of further damage. There has also been part of the inside flap of the jacket cut off at the back (please see photos for details) but this is barely noticeable when the book is closed.
All in all a very good first edition copy of this book despite the minor flaws mentioned above.
"For anyone who loves the book of J R R Tolkien, this volume is a must. Bilbo, Frodo, Sam Treebeard, Tom Bombadil and the Elves often sing his works, but to date only the words if the songs have appeared. Now, with the encouragement and assistance of Professor Tolkien, Donald Swann has provided music for seven songs- six from The Lord of the Rings trilogy and one from the Adventures of Tom Bombadil"
International buyers welcome.
Please feel free to check out the other Tolkien books I have listed. I am happy to combine shipping if more than one is purchased.
