A Near Fine copy of the book, in a Very Good Plus case, with the lightly soiled label to the front. The book basically has no faults, clean and bright., with a couple of small spots to the black buckram cloth. The case has a couple of corners that look to have split and been neatly repaired with a little touchup to the edges. 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, with noted repairs. Still has the original tissue wrapper laid in, showing how careful previous owner must have been. Both maps bound in, and in Fine condition, no tears or loss. An excellent example of this wonderful edition. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
