This is the 6th impression of the 1969 one volume De Luxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings, published by Allen & Unwin in 1978.
A Fine copy of the book, in a Good publisher box.
The book basically has no faults, clean and bright, no markings or wear.

An excellent example of this wonderful edition.
