This copy is a beautiful example of a Near Fine Book and its original dustjacket.
Clean and bright, still shows the original topstain to the textblock. The dustjacket has a bit of loss to the tips of the spine and fold area. The dustjacket, by Robert Quackenbush, shows the dark blue and bright orange/red colors, shows a bit of soiling or browning around the edges of the white rear panel of the dustjacket, with only the slightest of browning to the top of the flap edges.
The spine is slightly faded and tanned. The original blue cloth is clean and bright, unmarked, and the gilt is untarnished.
The interior of the book is also clean and bright, with a neat previous owner's gift inscription. The original dustjacket is not price clipped with the correct $4.00 price.
Dark green endpapers as published.
A beautiful, highly collectable copy of one of Tolkiens later works.
