The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Four Paperback Book Boxset from 1977, Still Sealed in Shrinkwrap.
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 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. Also the numbers on the spines of the books match up with another set that all were issued in November of 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, 1973 - 1983. Very unusual to find a set that has not been opened after 30 or 40 years. The case shows one lightly bumped corner, shrinkwrap is still intact with a few 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 near perfect find for the collector. Interior photos and photos of the covers are from another opened set, just for illustrative purposes. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.

New York: Ballantine Books, 1979. 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 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 Near Fine condition, with no tanning to the spines. All four books appear unread, showing no creases to the spines. Still fit into the box, not quite as tightly as usual. No names or markings whatsoever, the textblock is very clean and bright, unlike most sets from this era. The slipcase has very few minor rubs, but no bumped corners, all edges of the gold papers still stuck down, not loose as often found. One tiny rub with minor loss to the rear lower spine fold area, no other edgewear noted. Overall a Near Fine set in beautiful condition. The Hobbit is a 73rd printing, The Fellowship is a 68th printing, The Two Towers is a 65th printing, and the Return of the King is a 61st printing, from Nov 1978 thru Aug 1979. 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 an early one from that period. Very unusual to find a set that has not been damaged after almost 40 years. A great find for the collector. Minor rubbing to the slipcase, the only minor fault. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.

One of 3000 copies of the 1942, 1st Edition 3rd impression, printed for the Children's Book Club of the bookseller Foyles, from the Allen & Unwin plates. Bound in yellow, gilt-stamped cloth over boards, with a dust-jacket (which Tolkien thought hideous) in orange and white, featuring a cartoon of a dandified hobbit smoking a pipe. Tolkien commented, "Surely the paper wasted on that hideous dust-cover could have been better used." A scarce and desirable copy for the collector. The book is in Very Good condition. The boards were a bright yellow, but now have some discoloration to the edges of boards and the spine. The gilt on the spine is still legible with tarnishing and discoloration to the yellow cloth covering. Minimal bumping or warping to the very thin boards as issued, one more noticeable warp or bump to the upper edge of the rear board, with a couple of lower corners bumped. No fraying and only minor wear to the edges. No previous owners names or writing noted in the book. No foxing or offsetting to any of the pages, all relatively bright and clean. Features the "Book Production War Economy Standards" title verso, 'This Edition published 1942 by arrangement with George Allen & Unwin'. The dustjacket is a facsimile, provided to help protect this scarce issue. A very hard to find original issue of a very scarce book, housed in a Custom Clamshell Case that reflects the original dustjacket spine, with the boards covered in a lovely marbled paper featuring the bright orange of the dustjacket, to protect and show this very scarce book.
