THE LORD OF THE RINGS Comprising The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.

First edition, second impression of volume one, first impression of volumes two and three. Three volumes. Publisher's original red cloth with titles in gilt to the spine, in dustwrapper. Top edge red. Folding map to the rear of each volume. A superb, very near fine set. The bindings are firm and the cloth fresh, the spines ever so slightly rolled. The contents are fine, clean and bright throughout. Complete with the very lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrappers with a touch of toning at the extremities and a few minor marks to volume three. Not price-clipped. An exceptionally attractive set of Tolkien's masterpiece of fantasy fiction.

The Return of the King is in Hammond and Anderson's previously assumed first state with signature mark "4" present on page 49 and lines of type sagging in the middle, the conclusions of the bibliographers have since been challenged. (Bleiler; Hammond & Anderson A5a i, ii, & iii).
