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.

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 Gold Boxset from 1977,
New York: Ballantine Books, 1977. 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 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.

Also the numbers on the spines of the books match up with another set that all were issued in September of 1973, one of the earliest sets in this edition. 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 without any of the scattered holes and scrapes that are common, 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. Interior photos and photos of the covers are from another opened set, just for illustrative purposes.
