An exceptionally clean and bright set of this classic of fantasy literature.
The set is in original cloth with the original unpriced dustjackets, now in removable archival protectors.
The black cloth boards feature Tolkiens original "Ring & Eye" device stamped in various colors, with matching topstain and dustjacket color on each book.
The books are all in Near Fine condition, with Very Good Plus dustjackets. No names or writing or foxing whatsoever to the books.
The dustjackets show only the slightest rubbing and wear to the edges, with a couple of light marks noted.
The spines show a light amount of the usual fading, but not near the norm. Dustjackets are not priced or clipped, and all have the blindstamp on the rear boards, meaning these are the book club edition. The topstain on the books is unmarked and clean, not faded.
The set is housed in the original publishers slipcase with the label on one side, clean with a few small marks, a couple of lightly bumped corners.
Original maps are attached at the rear, in Fine condition, with no extra folds, or tears to any of the maps.
