  • Product Description
  • Product Options
Allen & Unwin. A lovely 1955 & 56 year set, average condition. Impressions 5th, 4th, & 3rd of the three books. 1956, 1956, 1957, These early impressions are increasingly hard to find without much more wear and tear. FotR jacket has a closed tear to cover seam and red color bleeding to the reverse of the jacket, but does no show thru. All three jackets have tattering to the spine ends. TT has a 3rd impression jacket, this is normal as leftover jackets were re-used. RotK has more wear, small ink stain, with extensive tape on the reverse of the jacket seams. This was just to support it as they are not torn. Book covers clean with only the odd mark except for small damp stain to FotR, bindings tight, pages clean, no marks. This is an above average set all around given the age. As nice an early set as you will find without spending much more. Please ask for additional photos as this will show the condition better than a description. Original box is worse for wear, but not seriously damaged.
