The Fellowship of the Ring, 1st Edition 1st Impression 1954
London: Allen & Unwin, 1954. J.R.R. Tolkien. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A true 1st Edition 1st Impression of The Fellowship of the Ring, by J.R.R. Tolkien. This copy is most likely destined to be rebound, as the covers are split at the spine fold, discolored and stained. However the topstain is not faded. The Ring & Eye portion of the dustjacket is glued down to the front endpaper, however no previous owner's name or other markings noted. The text block has a large foldover that runs from the front endpaper thru about the first fifty pages, before it becomes so faint as to not be visable. The map is missing from the rear as well. However tattered this may be, still the foundation for building a complete set of 1st impressions, quite suitable for rebinding. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.

London: Allen & Unwin, 1954. J.R.R. Tolkien. 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of the Rings, Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Fellowship of the Ring, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by George Allen and Unwin, this is the 1st impression published July 29th, 1954. One of only 1500 printed for the UK This copy is in Very Good condition with some minor rubbing and marks to the boards. The top stain is faded and slightly dusty. The book has a slight spine lean, a couple of lightly bumped corners, but the gilt is still bright and untarnished. The top and bottom of the spine is pushed with a bit of rubbing, but not frayed. A light bit of shelfwear to the bottom of the boards, but no fraying. A previous owners gift inscription dated Christmas 1954 to the front free endpaper. A couple of tape marks/ghosts to the front and rear free endpapers. No foxing or offsetting noted, with a minor split to the endpaper at the bottom of the front gutter. The binding is still nice and tight overall. The map is present at the rear, and shows the 1st state point with the red dot off the coast of Umbar. The tips of the boards are rubbed, but also not frayed. The dustjacket is price clipped, but is in remarkable condition. It has had some professional restoration, to remove the tape marks from the inner flaps of the dustjacket. The tape marks are the result of an early dustjacket protector that was taped down, but did its job and preserved the dustjacket very nicely. There are no chips or loss to the edges, and the red lettering is not faded. The spine is not tanned, and the front and rear panel show only the lightest of soiling. A remarkable copy of this very scarce book and dustjacket, that is seldom offered by itself. The foundation for building a true 1st impression set of the Tolkien Trilogy.

The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings Harper Collins Slipcased Set
London: Harper Collins, 2000. Alan Lee. First Thus. Hard Cover. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by Harper Collins in 2000, this set takes the 1997 Alan Lee illustrated edition of the Hobbit and the 1991 Alan Lee illustrated edition of The Lord of the Rings, and releases them together in their own publishers slipcase. The slipcase features one scene from each book, and is accented by a gold border on the top and bottom edge that features the runic script as found on the dustjackets. The slipcase has a couple of bumped corners, no splits to the seams as are common. As the Hobbit is a wider book, the slipcase has an offset spacer to allow both books to fit the box evenly. The Hobbit is the 1997 edition, 5th impression, released to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of the original publication. The dustwrapper was modified to match The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion illustrated editions. Most of the changes are to the text on the spine, but small changes were also made to the runic border. This one also features a price on the inner flap which is an indication that you own a later, modified edition. A full 22 color illustrations, and 38 pencil drawings, beautifully illustrated edition by Alan Lee. The Lord of the Rings is the 1991 edition, 12th impression, produced to commemorate the centenary of Tolkien's birth. The dustwrapper is distinctive to some others as it has the title in a black oval shape, a design introduced during the 11th impression, and is also priced on the front flap. There are 50 full color illustrations by Alan Lee, and you can see how his ideas impacted the movies directed by Peter Jackson. A beautifully illustrated set, not available to the US market, it makes a wonderful slipcased set for the Tolkien Collector. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Four Paperback Book Boxset from 1973, Still Sealed in Shrinkwrap.
New York: Ballantine Books, 1973. J.R.R. Tolkien. 2nd Edition. Mass Market Paperback. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. A four volume paperback set housed in the Publishers original Gold Foil covered slipcase, featuring the Heraldic symbols that were drawn by J.R.R. Tolkien. These illustrations include the ones designed to represent Feanor, Idril Celebrindal, Earendil, Luthien Tinuviel, Fingolfin, Elwe, Luthien Tinuviel and Finwe. This is one of the few published sets that includes all four books, The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. This is also the first set to feature the illustrations by J.R.R. Tolkien, as the covers of the book and slipcase, rather then the Barbara Remington designs as found on previous issues. As this set is still sealed it is not possible to tell the exact printing or publishing date, however the exterior of the case does note the Heraldry designs are copyright of George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1973. Hammond and Anderson's, A Descriptive Bibliography notes that "after the 40th (March 1973) and no later than the forty-second (September 1973)", the Hobbit was sold in sets with the Lord of the Rings, housed "in a slipcase, gold (or blue, or red) printed paper over boards, featuring Heraldic devices by Tolkien." This design was used until 1983, when the covers were changed again. So this set is from that period, 1973 - 1983. Very unusual to find a set that has not been opened after 30 or 40 years. The case shows no bumped corners, shrinkwrap is still intact with a few scattered holes and scrapes, and the spines of the four books are in perfect condition. They do not appear to be faded or tanned in any way. A perfect find for the collector. Photo's of covers are from another opened set, just for illustrative purposes.

A four volume paperback set housed in the Publishers original Gold Foil pictorial slipcase, featuring the Heraldic symbols that were drawn by J.R.R. Tolkien. These illustrations include the ones designed to represent Feanor, Idril Celebrindal, Earendil, Luthien Tinuviel, Fingolfin, Elwe, Luthien Tinuviel and Finwe. This is one of the few published sets that includes all four books, The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. This is also the first set to feature the illustrations by J.R.R. Tolkien, as the covers of the book and slipcase, rather then the Barbara Remington designs as found on previous issues. These paperback books are in Very Good Plus condition, with no tanning to the covers, the slightest creasing to a couple of the spines. No names or markings whatsoever. The slipcase shows some rubbing with a small amount of color loss, mainly to the corners, but is in Very Good condition. The Hobbit is a 66th printing, The Fellowship is a 63rd printing, The Two Towers is a 59th printing, and the Return of the King is a 57th printing, all from November 1977. Hammond and Anderson's, A Descriptive Bibliography notes that "after the 40th (March 1973) and no later than the forty-second (September 1973)", the Hobbit was sold in sets with the Lord of the Rings, housed "in a slipcase, gold (or red) printed paper over boards, featuring Heraldic devices by Tolkien." This design was used until 1983, when the covers were changed again. So this set is from that period. Very unusual to find a set that has not been damaged after almost 40 years, especially with the spines of the four books in only slightly creased condition. The pages do not appear to be yellowing to any degree, so an almost perfectly preserved set. A perfect find for the collector. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Four Paperback Book Gold Boxset from 1977,
The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Authorized Edition, All 1st Impressions, with Custom Slipcase.
Ballantine Books, 1965. Barbara Remington. First Thus. Mass Market Paperback. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. A 4 volume set of the 'only authorized' paperback's, published by Ballantine in 1965 and 1966. This set consists of The 1st Printing of The Hobbit, along with a 1st Printing Set of The Lord of the Rings in a custom slipcase. The case features gilt stamps to the side panels, and a gilt stamped "signature" to the rear panel. The Hobbit is the 1st Printing of August 1965, The Fellowship of the Ring is the 1st Printing of October 1965, The Two Towers is the 1st Printing of November 1965, and The Return of the King is the 1st Printing of December 1965. These are all in excellent condition, with a few light rubs to the tips of the covers on the Return. Remarkable condition considering their age, very little age toning to the pages, unlike the norm. The set of Lord of the Rings books has the Barbara Remington Triptych artwork, which Tolkien objected to, wondering where the idea's for the illustrations originated. These books are the answering salvo of the "War over Middle- Earth", between Ballantine and Ace Publishers. To establish a new copyright, Tolkien was asked to submit new material to create a new Edition, and so secure their copyright beyond question. Tolkien conducted a personal campaign against Ace Books in letters to his American fans. The "War over Middle-earth' was fought in the popular press, with the publicity contributing to increased sales and popularity. Within a year, Ace gave in to public pressure. They agreed to print no more copies, and they negotiated royalties to be paid to Tolkien.

The Lord of the Rings **Signed Alan Lee Deluxe Ltd. Ed.*
The Lord of the Rings - Original 1963 UK Deluxe Set, with Original Pauline Baynes Triptych Slipcase.
London: Allen & Unwin, 1963. J.R.R. Tolkien. 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of. Original Cloth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The true 1st Edition, Allen and Unwin 1963 Deluxe Edition of the 3 volumes of the Lord of the Rings, comprised of "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King". This set is bound in the original Black Buckram cloth with gilt titles, author and publisher to the spines of each volume. The gilt is still bright, without any rubs or tarnishing. Each volume features Bevel-Edged boards, gilded page edges, with an original silk bookmark sewn in. The books are in Near Fine condition, with almost no marks or rubbing to the gilded edges, no writing or inscriptions in any of the books. The textblocks are clean and unmarked, with a very tight binding. The spines of the books are a matching black color, possibly a tiny bit sunned. The books are housed in the very scarce original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "Triptych" artwork. This case has a couple of minor bumps to the corners, and a little rubbing to the edges, no color loss to speak of. Clean and bright, without any corner splits, a lovely case that is one of the looser fitting ones I've run across. Allows the books to be easily removed, versus the tighter ones that are sometimes very difficult to withdraw the books. One of the nicest sets overall I've run across in years. The scarcest of all the original Allen & Unwin 1st Editions, as well as the Houghton Mifflin issues. According to publishers records, 1000 or less sets were produced. Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson on page 98. The outside of the slipcase show some superficial rubbing, but is whole & complete, without any major stains or faults. A rare opportunity for this scarce set and the orignal publishers slipcase illustrated by Pauline Baynes. Digital images available upon request. Other Tolkien sets, original and rebound are available. Inquire if interested. A wonderful addition to anyone's Tolkien collection. Item #1222

The Lord of the Rings - Original 1963 UK Deluxe Set, with Original Pauline Baynes Triptych Slipcase.
The Lord of the Rings - Original 1963 UK Deluxe Set, in Original Pauline Baynes Triptych Slipcase, Signed By the Author.
London: Allen & Unwin, 1963. J.R.R. Tolkien. 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of the Rings, Original Cloth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien, published by George Allen & Unwin in 1963. The true 1st Deluxe Edition of the 3 volumes of the Lord of the Rings, comprised of "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King". The Fellowship of the Ring is signed by the author, J.R.R. Tolkien, to the title page. A wonderful provenance on this signature, as it comes with a note signed by Merlin Unwin, the son of Rayner Unwin. It states that The Fellowship, "belonged to my father Rayner Unwin (Tolkien's editor and publisher) and was kept in his personal library at our family home in Little Missenden, Buckinghamshire. After his death in 2000 it remained there until the death of his widow, Carol, in 2012. Merlin Unwin". The young lad whose book report was instrumental in the publishing of the Hobbit, kept this signed copy for many years. Has the initials A.R.R. to the back of the free endpaper. It has been added to this partial set, which had the original slipcase and the other two books, to complete this lovely set. I know of only one other signed set of this Deluxe Edition, which was given to Pauline Baynes, and recently sold for an extremely high price at auction. This set is bound in the original Black Buckram cloth with gilt titles, author and publisher to the spines of each volume. Each volume features Bevel-Edged boards, gilded page edges, and the original silk bookmark sewn in. The books are in Very Good Plus condition showing some light rubbing and marks to the covers, with almost no marks or rubbing to the gilded edges, Initials to the back free endpaper, with no other writing or inscriptions in any of the books, except for the authors signature. The textblocks are clean and unmarked, with a very tight binding. The original maps are all present, and have no tears or misfolds, nor any browning to the folds as often happens. The spine of the Two Towers is only slightly lighter in color, less so than the common flaw with this edition. Seems to only occur with the Two Towers, and rarely the other two books. The books are housed in the very scarce original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "Triptych" artwork. This case has some minor splits starting to the entry corners, but very little rubbing to the back corners, and no bumped corners as is often found. Clean and bright, one of the nicest I've run across in many years. The scarcest of all the original Allen & Unwin 1st Editions, as well as the Houghton Mifflin issues, with the signed copy added, makes a marvelous set for the Tolkien enthusiast. According to publishers records, 1000 or less sets produced. Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson on page 98. The outside of the slipcase show some superficial rubbing, one small scuff to the back side edge, but whole & complete, without any major stains or faults. A rare opportunity for this scarce signed set with it's original Pauline Baynes illustrated slipcase. A full leather clamshell case has been crafted to house this wonderful set, including the original slipcase. The clamshell features full black leather with recessed panels, holding reproductions of Pauline Baynes color "Triptych" artwork. A beautiful presentation to house and protect this extraordinary set. Digital images available upon request. Other Tolkien sets, original and rebound are available. Inquire if interested. A wonderful addition to anyone's Tolkien collection. Item #1228
