The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien, published by Houghton Mifflin in October 1986 for the Science Fiction Book Club. These are later printings of the 2nd Edition, issued without a slipcase, now housed in a Custom Black Leather Slipcase. The boards feature the gold stamped "Ring & Eye" device to the front boards of each book. Both books and dustjacket are in Near Fine condition, with a bit of fading to the cream colored spine of the books, the Two Towers shows some scuffing and tears to the front flap fold area with small areas missling. Each book features its own pair of maps mounted as the endpapers at the front and rear of each book. This is a set of the Science Fiction Book Club that are sized 1/2" shorter than the trade edition, with the dustjackets unpriced but lacking the blindstamp to the rear boards. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.
