A New Edition Completely Revised with Notes and an Introduction by C.L. Wrenn.
With Prefatory Remarks by J.R.R. Tolkien.

First published by Allen & Unwin in 1911, with this being the Third Impression of 1950. The book is in Near Fine condition, with no marks or writing in it.
Small booksellers label, Blackwells Oxford England, also has a previous owners bookplate to the front endpaper, hidden under the dustjacket flap. The dustjacket is price clipped.
A bit of scattered foxing to the outer edges, none to the textblock itself, still very clean and bright.
The covers are very clean and bright, having been protected by the original dustjacket.
The light dustjacket has a bit of a shadow to the front panel, with a few minor chips to the edges, mainly at the spine and flap folds.
The spine is lightly tanned, but the brown lettering is still bright and legible. Some minor rubbing and loss to the tips of the spine and fold areas. Orange topstain still visible, a bit dusty.

A wonderful copy for the Tolkien completest, scarce in this lovely condition.
