The book is in Near Fine condition, with no previous owners names, or other writing or marks. The is a small fault to the front cloth boards, a nub in the cloth, appears to be from the weaving process, which shows as a small knotted spot to the cloth. A very clean and bright dustjacket, with no fading or tanning. Only the most minor of rubbing, with no tears or loss. No fading or soiling, the dustjacket is also in Near Fine condition.

A wonderful copy of J.R.R. Tolkien's lifetime work containing his account of the mythology of Middle-earth, edited by his son, Christopher Tolkien. The map of Beleriand and the Lands to the North appears as a fold-out map, and is printed in black and red, no tears or marks noted. The dark blue topstain is slightly faded.

An extremely collectable copy, housed in a custom faux leather slipcase, gilt stamped with the JRRT Monogram to the rear, and the Tengwar title and author, as well as Tolkien's Heraldic device representing Luthien Tinuviel stamped to the front. Any questions, please feel free to ask.
