1963 1st UK Lord of the Rings Deluxe Edition with Pauline Baynes Slipcase.


The true 1st Deluxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings, housed in the very scarce original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color triptych artwork.



The true 1st Deluxe Edition of the 3 volumes of the Lord of the Rings, comprised of "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King".

This set is bound in the original Black Buckram cloth with gilt titles, author and publisher to the spines of each volume. Each volume features Bevel-Edged boards, gilded page edges, and original silk bookmark sewn in.
The books are in Very Good condition, with a few marks and rubbing to the gilded edges, but no writing or inscriptions in any of the books.

The spine of the Two Towers looks lighter in color, but this is a common flaw with this edition. Seems to only occur with the Two Towers, and never the other two books. The books are housed in the very scarce original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "triptych" artwork. Sadly come loose to the bottom right, but the original slipcase and when standing up not noticeable the right bottom is damaged.

The scarcest of all the original Allen & Unwin 1st Editions, as well as the Houghton Mifflin issues. According to publishers records, 1000 or less sets produced.
Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson on page 98.
