Houghton Mifflin , Second Editions, Fellowship of the Rings is a 4th impression, The Two Towers and Return of the King are marked as 3rd impressions, where the Hobbit is a 25th impression.
An unusual set, matched in size and format, four volume hardback set. These books may have been a book club edition as they are unpriced.
The size and format looks the same as the Pirated Taiwan editions.
The books are slightly dusty, otherwise a bright set of this classic of fantasy literature.
The set is in original light tan cloth with original dustjackets.
The tan cloth boards have no gilt stamping except to the spine on each book.
The books are all Very Good Plus. The Hobbit has a pair of initials, the other books have no other writing, names, or dates, and only a slight bit of offsetting to the endpapers.
The dustjackets show a small amount of wear to the edges of the dustjackets, and the spines show a light amount of the usual fading on the Return of the King.
Dustjackets are not priced or clipped, and none of the books have a
blindstamp to the rear boards.
Original maps are attached at the rear of the 3 Lord of the Rings books, where the Hobbit has its maps included in the text instead of as endpapers.
Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
