All books are in their correct and original dustjackets. This set of books is also housed in the original publishers slipcase with the label on the side. A Very Good Plus set of first editions of this classic of fantasy literature. The dustjackets are not price clipped, and have only light sunning or tanning to the spines. Some fading of the red lettering, but still very legible. No chips or loss. Some rubbing and very light soiling to the edges. No previous owners names or inscriptions in the books. There is absolutely no foxing or offsetting in any of the books. The text block is clean and bright, edges are also clean & bright. The red topstain is clean, with no fading, a little spotting on the Return. The exterior cloth is clean, with the gilt untarnished and bright. The books look remarkable, and the maps are attached, and in excellent condition. A beautiful matched set. No shelf wear to the edges, or bumped corners. Original publishers slipcase has protected these wonderful books well over the years. The slipcase has survived remarkably well, with only some minor bumps and edgewear.

Scarce in this excellent condition.
