The Lord of the Rings, De Luxe Edition, by George Allen & Unwin.
This is the 1st impression of the one volume De Luxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings, published by Allen & Unwin in 1969.
A Very Good Plus copy of the book, it has the slightest of rubbing to the gilt on the front stamped design, otherwise Near Fine. The slipcase shows some wear to the edges, but has protected the book for 40 years. This edition is printed on India Paper, making the full 3 volumes bound into a single volume, only 1 inch thick.
The black buckram cloth has the Tolkien design depicting the Numenorean throne with 'Elendil' in tengwar, stamped on upper cover in gilt, silver and green.
Mottled black and grey wove endpapers, all edges trimmed and speckled light green.
Housed in the original publishers slipcase, only the 1st & 2nd impressions were issued with the slipcase.
Both maps bound in, and in Fine condition, no tears or loss.
