A very nice copy of an extremely collectable book.
This is the 1st Edition, 1st Impression, 3rd State, with the publishers device on the title page.


The maps are bound to the order of the List of Illustrations, and the 'Chapter VII' on page 118 has been corrected.
This book also has the half title page as called for.

It features the 4 color and 9 black and white illustrations by Tolkien, all of which are present and in extremely clean and bright condition.
The text block and maps are also very clean and bright, with only the lightest foxing or soiling to the margins and the pages opposite the color illustrations. No writing, names, or inscriptions. No bumps to the edges or corners of the boards.

The original cloth shows very little shelf wear on the bottom edge. The cloth of the spine shows some rubbing to the top of the spine, but not frayed.
Overall the boards are very clean with no loss or frayed edges.

I have provided a one piece facsimile of the very rare 1st Dustjacket to help protect and show off this lovely classic of modern fiction.
