The Lord of the Rings, De Luxe Edition, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published in 1974 by George Allen & Unwin. This is the 3rd impression of the 1 Volume De Luxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings.
A Near Fine copy of the book, in a Very Good Plus tray case, with the lightly soiled label to the front.
The book basically has no faults, clean and bright, a few wrinkled pages, one folded over during binding, leaves a slightly longer edge, not uncommon with the very thin India paper.
The case has one split corner neatly repaired.
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 Very Good Plus box, with onionskin wrapper.
Both maps bound in, and in Fine condition, no tears or extra folds noted.This is a beautiful design, executed by one of America's premier binders.
A beautiful example of this wonderful edition.
Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
