A Very Good Plus set of this scarce printing. The white or light grey leather of the spines, shows the lightest rubbing. This edition features the maps as endpapers in all three books. No names, inscriptions, or any marks of any type, in any of the books. Very likely unread.
A very nice set of first editions of this classic of fantasy literature. The set is housed in the original publishers slipcase, showing only the lightest of wear to the edges. All are very clean and bright, with no foxing, and with no writing or signatures.
Beautiful looking set of the 1st printing by the Folio Society.
