Paline Baynes. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #2455

The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien, published by Allen & Unwin. The Revised (2nd) Edition. Vol I: The Fellowship of the Ring is an 7th impression published in 1973. Vol II: The Two Towers is an 9th impression published in 1974. Vol III: The Return of the King is a 9th impression, published in 1974. All three volumes are in Near Fine condition with the top edge stained red, clean and bright textblock, with no previous owners name, nor other writing. The original red cloth boards are clean and bright, no bumped corners, the tip of one corner of The Return is bleached white. No foxing or offsetting to the endpapers, there are a couple of faint tape ghosts to the front free endpaper of The Fellowship, hardly noticeable. The red topstain is faded to the final two books, not the first. Original maps are in still in place, in excellent condition, no tears or extra folds. The Near Fine dustjackets show beautifully. These are the later impressions of the 2nd Edition that appear with a differently colored background to the dustjackets. The Fellowship is a dark green color, the Two Towers is a purple color, and The Return a brown color. A lovely opportunity for this significant and collectable set of books. 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.
