Sir Gawain & The Green Knight, edited by J.R.R. Tolkien & E.V. Gordon.
One of the first books published, with J.R.R. Tolkien contributing to the preface.

Published by the Clarendon Press in 1955, the Seventh printing of this book.

Unusually, this is not a well used student copy.
This copy has no previous owners names, and no writing or markings in the book.
It does have a Foyles Bookseller sticker to the front pastedown, hidden under the front flap of the dustjacket.
It is also very unusually still housed in it's original Near Fine dustjacket.
Dustjacket has no loss or edgewear, and the top of the spine has a bit of wrinkling but with no loss.
The dustjacket is price clipped to the front flap, and a bit of offsetting outlines the flap on the front free endpaper.

A beautiful collectable copy for the Tolkien enthusiast.

Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
