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

Fellowship of the Ring – Twelfth 1962/Fourteenth wrapper. Map present, no inscription, no tears, no foxing, odd marks. Original red rubbed and marked boards, slight shelf rubbing to edges, minor spilt edges. Minor water mark to wrapper spine/and internal and fractionally on front/rear cover.  Slight spine fade.

The Two Towers  - Ninth 1962/Eleventh wrapper. Map present, no inscription, no tears, no foxing, minor red top edge run into front blank page.  Original red boards, slight shelf rubbing to edges. Slight spine fade.  

The Return of King – Ninth 1962/Eleventh wrapper. Map present, no inscription, no tears & no foxing.  Original red rubbed and marked boards, slight shelf rubbing to edges & minor spine spilt. Slight spine fade, one closed tear 5mm.  

 Slipcase – Edges show signs of rubbing and shelf wear evident. This being said all intact and plate all only lightly faded.


So overall a very nice set and complete, albeit wrappers from slightly later impressions. A great way to start collecting Tolkien and especially to pick up a rare slipcased set at a reasonable price.  

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 £20 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.
