#CLP0111 - The Lord of the Rings triple signed and dedicated set, with two autograph signed cards by J.R.R. Tolkien - sold


This set is very uniqe in several ways. It is near fine, virtually unread, triple dedicated and comes with provenance by J.R.R. Tolkien himself in form of two written cards, signed by Tolkien (adding two more signatures). On one card Tolkien gives the translation of Lord of the Rings to Quenya! This is probably one of the most unique Tolkien sets to ever come on the market!

How often does a triple signed set appear for sale, almost never. Most have been seperated, and combined into multiple sets. A rare opportunity for this set of significant and collectable books.

Unique about this set is that it comes with the correspondance between J.R.R. Tolkien and Philip Brown that talks about the signing of the books. This set was signed on Wednesday June 6th slightly after 4.30 pm.

What makes this set even more special is that on the card to Philip Brown Tolkien gives the Quenya name for The Lord of the Rings: "i Turin i Cormaron". This is something that will be very interesting to Tolkien liguists!
