The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published in 1963 by Houghton Mifflin Co. A beautiful later impression set of the classic Lord of the Rings. Housed in a custom red leather slipcase, the colors of the dustjackets are bright and look spectacular. The Dustjackets are Very Good Plus on the set, showing minor edgewear and a few closed tears or chips missing, small areas of color loss, mostly to the flap fold and tips of the spines. All three of the dustjackets are price clipped. The bright blue cloth is clean and bright, gilt still shines brightly on all 3 books. No soiling or edgewear to note, except the Fellowship has some stains to the endpapers, which extends to the top edges of the textblock. Same neat previous owners inscription, in pencil, to all three books, mostly hidden by the front flap of the dustjacket. The original maps are present in all three volumes, no extra folds or tears noted. Further digital images can be supplied on request. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.
