J R R Tolkien

The Lord of the Rings

Box Set


I have for sale this book trilogy which needs little introduction. Written by JRR Tolkien and published in the 1950’s the trilogy (The Fellowship if the Ring, The Two Towers & The Return of the King) are amongst the best selling books ever!

The books are from the second edition 1978 published by George Allen & Unwin. They come issued in original slipcase based on a design by Tolkien himself.


Books/wrappers: All in good condition and wrappers unclipped. A little creasing to some of the cover edges but nothing major noted. Pages clean and no tears. A few minor page edge marks but nothing inside.

Slipcase: Stunning condition for age. No broken/spilt edges. Very light indents/marks but more or less as new.  

So overall a rare and collectible set of books and together with original case they are rarely seen offered for sale.  

The winner will receive very well packed via signed for post.  Postage will be UK £20, Europe £30 and rest of world £40. Once dispatched I will refund any overpaid p&p.

Please see my other Tolkien books & artwork.
