The Lord of the Rings, Comprised of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Published by George Allen and Unwin in 1965, these books are later impressions of the 1st UK Edition, originally published in 1954/1954/1955 respectively.

The Fellowship of the Rings is a 14th impression published in 1965.
The Two Towers is a 11th impression published in 1965.
The Return of the King is an 6th impression published in 1960.

All three books have their correct impression, non price clipped original dustjackets, in good condition showing tanning and wear with some rubbing and loss to the edges or fold areas. Some stains are on the jacket fronts and backs.

The books are in Near Fine condition with no offsetting or foxing, no previous owners names or markings in any of the books. Only the Fellowship of the Ring holds a small pencil note of a previous bookdealer. The Return of the Ring seems to have been bumped on one corner showing a small bend in the back board.

The gilt to all three books clean and bright.
Each book has its own original foldout map tipped in at the rear, and all are in excellent condition with no tears or extra folds noted.

Overal a very nice The Lord of the Rings set, later impressions with matching dust jackets. A perfect set for any Tolkien lover!
