I have pleasure in offering for sale this set of three books & original slipcase - The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers & The Return of the King.

All three books are in fantastic condition, have original, un-restored, unclipped wrappers, maps at the rear, pages tight and are unread. None have any inscriptions, tears or any internal foxing. As new!  

Fellowship of the Ring – Thirteenth 1963. Cover immaculate , spine sun faded as usual.

The Two Towers  - Tenth 1963. Cover immaculate, spine sun faded as usual.

The Return of King – Ninth 1962. Cover immaculate bar slight fading to match slipcase, spine sun faded as usual.

Slipcase - The slipcase is also very good to say its 50+ years old. The plate is not faded which is often the case. No repairs done and just a few minor knocks to corners/edges.


So overall a very nice set and one I cannot speak highly enough. The books were clearly brought with the case and have been removed I guess, only a few times since. Over the years I have handled 10-12 of these sets and these are amongst the best I have seen.  A lovely addition to a Tolkien collection and I doubt you will find as good a set elsewhere for this sort of figure

This set is heavy and will be only sent via special delivery, very well packed, thus insuring both the winner and myself at a cost of £15 to UK, £35 to Europe and £45 elsewhere. Any overpaid postage will be refunded once sent as is my usual policy. 

Please see my other Tolkien items and do let me know if any more info needed.

Payment within 3 days please.
