These books are later printings of the 1st US Edition, still a highly collectable set, especially in this Near Fine condition.


An exceptionally clean and lovely set of first editions of this classic of fantasy literature.
The set is housed in a custom slipcase to show and protect this beautiful set.
The set is all original cloth with the correct original dustjackets.
The books are clean and unmarked, with the gilt stamping to the boards and spine, clear and bright.
The dustjackets are all in Near Fine condition, with bright colors and without any fading to the spines.
No loss or chips to any of the dustjackets.

The Fellowship of the Ring, has no writing or previous owners names, no foxing or offsetting to the endpapers, as is so often found.
All of the pages, and edges are clean and crisp.

The Two Towers shows no faults, no writing, foxing or offsetting.

The Return of the King is also in Near Fine condition, with no writing, names, foxing or offsetting.
The unclipped dustjackets exhibit all the correct issue points for the books, including the correct price of $5.95, and color combination. They show a small line of browning to the exposed edges on the interior flaps. The books are tight and clean without foxing, fading, and none are price clipped.

Besides being a truly beautiful looking set, this set is very collectable.


The original maps are present in all three volumes, no extra folds or tears noted, tiniest bit of browning along the creases.
