#000336 - 1960 Readers Union Lord of the Rings, Very Good Plus/Near Fine with original dustjackets - SOLD
The only set to have this particular and very unusual dustjacket.  Scarce in this condition.  
Includes custom slipcase for display and protection of these fine books.
A Near Fine/Very Good Plus set of this unusual presentation of Tolkien's trilogy.  

Not for sale to the general public, limited to members of the Readers Union only.  
Published by the Readers Union in 1960 with the permission of George Allen & Unwin Ltd, London.  

No names, or writing, nor any offsetting on the endpapers.  Housed in the original Very Good Plus dustjackets, which are not price clipped, these unusual dustjackets are in fabulous shape. The jackets show minimal tanning to the spines or edges.  
The spine of the Return of the King, has a small chip out at the base.  Other than this small fault, the rest of the dustjackets show only the most minor of rubbing or loss at the folds.  A couple of wrinkles and closed tears, but overall a great looking set.  These are the set that features the early line drawing by Tolkien of "Sauron's Eye".  

The only set to have this particular and very unusual dustjacket.  Scarce in this condition.  
Includes custom slipcase for display and protection of these fine books.
