The dark blue topstain is slightly faded and a bit dusty. A wonderful copy of J.R.R. Tolkien's lifetime work containing his account of the mythology of Middle-earth, edited by his son, Christopher Tolkien. The map of Beleriand and the Lands to the North appears as a fold-out map, and is printed in black and red, no tears or marks noted, very clean and bright. Noted points or error's: Page 330 line 4 shows no period after Feanor. Page 352 line 39 has an italicized "and" in 'Lord of Waters and King of the Sea'. Making this the First State of the First Impression. An extremely collectable copy, housed in a custom black leather slipcase, gilt stamped with Tolkien's device representing Luthien Tinuviel , and Tolkien's JRRT Monogram on the covers of the black leather.
