The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
A nice looking 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.
The books are in Very Good condition, with the same previous owners name and initialed label, with a small amount of offsetting to the endpapers. 
Housed in the original dustjackets, all are in Very Good condition, with the Fellowship and Two Towers dustjackets having some splits and loss to the top and bottom of the spine ends, and the corners of the flap fold areas.
The Return dustjackets does not have any loss to the spine or flap fold areas.
It does have some light discoloration at the top of the spine.
None of the dustjackets are price clipped, and all show a bit of tanning to the spines.
These unusual dustjackets are in Very Good condition, and show very nicely, with The Fellowship showing the most wear of the three.
All maps are tipped in at the rear, and in excellent condition, with no extra folds, and no tears noted.
This is the set that features a line drawing by an unnamed artist for Readers Union of 'Sauron's Eye'. The only set to have this particular and very unusual dustjacket.

Includes a custom slipcase for display and protection of these beautiful books.
