The Hobbit shows tolkien's drawing of Smaug and the Lord of the Rings show the ring and eye design by J.R.R. Tolkien.
These paperback books are in fine condition. With some bumps, rubbing to the corners. But mostly unread.
The Hobbit has clearly been read and shows several creases to the front paper cover and a previous owner signature.
The box has seen better days, with some rubbing and some inner slips coming loose. Some rubbing and bumps to corners, so showing some color loss.
Some rubbing to bottom. Box was however made of very thin cardboard so difficult to find this set in any condition.
A great find for the collector and a lovely box with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, with nice photo of Tolkien by Billett Potter.
Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.
