The Lord of the Rings, UK De Luxe Edition, by George Allen & Unwin. This is the 5th impression of the 1 volume De Luxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings, published by Allen & Unwin in 1976. A Near Fine copy of the book, in a Near Fine case, with the label to the front, slightly faded. The book basically has no faults, clean and bright, no markings or wear. The case has a few rough edges, but no split corners. This edition is printed on India Paper, making the full 3 volumes bound into a single volume, only 1 inch thick. The black buckram cloth has the Tolkien design depicting the Numenorean throne with 'Elendil' in tengwar, stamped on upper cover in gilt, silver and green. Mottled black and grey wove endpapers, all edges trimmed and speckled light green. Housed in the original publishers box, still with the original onion skin wrapper around the book. A marvelous copy of the beautiful edition, becoming scarce in this Near Fine/Fine condition. Both maps bound in, and in Fine condition, no tears or loss. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.
