The final four books in the 12 volume series, of The History of Middle Earth, comprised of #9 Sauron Defeated, #10 Morgoth's Ring, #11 The War of the Jewels, and #12 The Peoples of Middle-Earth.


All 4 volumes in Near Fine condition in Near Fine dustjackets.

Only the lightest of rubbing to the dustjackets, no chipping or loss to any. The Peoples of Middle-Earth shows a wrinkle on the upper edge of the back panel with a tiny closed tear, still Very Good Plus/Near Fine for this extremely scarce title. An outstanding set for the collector. Harper Collins first printings of the final 4 volumes, none of the 4 volumes are price clipped. Points of issue on the 4 books are as follows: Price on dustjacket #9, #10, #11, & #12. No names or writing in any of the books. No foxing or offsetting in any of the books. All of these books are clean and bright, unfoxed, and unmarked.

The first four books, published by Allen & Unwin have the topstain on the top edge, while these four published by Harper Collins do not. Slightest bit of toning to the margins on The War of the Jewels, however The Peoples of Middle Earth and Morgoth's Ring are not toned as is the norm, due to the lower quality paper used by the publisher.

Housed in a custom slipcase to show and protect these lovely copies.
Edited by Christopher Tolkien from his father's manuscripts, detailing the evolution of Tolkien's life long works dealing with Middle Earth.
