2nd Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #2396
The Lord of the Rings, One Volume Edition with the Index and Appendices, published by Unwin Hyman in 1988. This is the 1st impression (1988) of this lovely edition, featuring the dustjacket artwork by Roger Garland. A Near Fine copy of the book, in a New Custom Black Leather Slipcase. This edition is a bit unusual and quite hard to find, especially in this lovely condition. The book is bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering to the spine, and features a navy blue silk ribbon marker. The book is in Near Fine condition, only fault is a crease to the front board, which was bent during shipping. No previous owners names or any other writing noted. The 1st impressions were issued without any maps, which were reinstated in the 2nd and 3rd impressions, and would have been spread over the last few pages of the book. An excellent example of this wonderful edition, hard to find as likely limited in numbers issued by Unwin Hyman. 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. Near Fine / Near Fine.
