All three volumes are in Near Fine condition with clean and bright edges, clean and bright textblock, and in Near Fine unclipped dustjackets, showing the most minor edgewear or rubbing to the top edge of the spine of The Fellowship of the Ring. The dustjackets have a tiny bit of fading to the spines, none to the colored lettering. No bumped corners to the books, no previous owners names or writing. There are basically no major faults to these books, crisp, tight and bright. No shelfwear to the bottom of the boards, no previous owners names or any writing. No foxing or offsetting to any of the books. The custom bonded brown leather slipcase is provided to house and protect this classic Lord of the Rings set. The books may have been read, but exhibit no spine lean, or damaged edges or spines. Modest price for this set of 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.
