Tolkien, JRR: Lord of the Rings Trilogy HB/DJ American 1st/1st&2nd (Rev ed '67)


Tolkien, JRR: Lord of the Rings Trilogy HB/DJ American 1st/1st&2nd (Revised ed. 1967)
Publisher: Haughton Mifflin Co, (c) 1966/1967

This is the complete set of Tolkien’s (sometimes misspelled Tolkein) penultimate fantasy, “The Lord of the Rings”. This is the revised edition; it was produced in response to Ace publishing a non-licensed set of “The Lord of the Rings” in paperback.

This is a mixed set of editions. “The Fellowship of the Ring” is a second printing, “The Two Towers” is a first edition and “The Return of the King” is a second printing. The condition of these books is as follows:

The Fellowship of the Ring
This book is a nice copy. It’s a VG/VG+ in a VG/VG+ dust jacket. The book is tight. The gilding on the covers is largely intact and quite nice, it shows some handling. The map in the back is attached and in great shape.

The clipped jacket is in VG/VG+ condition with a couple of very small missing pieces and creases. The jacket has some mars and scratches.

The Two Towers
This book is a nice copy. It’s a VG+ in a VG+ dust jacket. The book is tight. The gilding on the covers is intact and quite nice. The book shows some handling and spotting. The map in the back is attached and in great shape.

The clipped jacket is in VG/VG+ condition with a couple of small missing pieces and creases. The jacket has some minor mars and scratches.

The Return of the King
This book is a nice copy. It’s a VG+ in a VG+ dust jacket. The book is tight. The gilding on the covers is intact and quite nice. The book shows some handling and spotting. The map in the back is attached and in great shape.

The clipped jacket is in VG/VG+ condition with a couple of small missing pieces and creases. The jacket has some minor mars and scratches.

There is no writing or marks in the book. The binding is straight and tight. This is not a remainder, book club or ex-library copy. The back of these books does not include the square embossing indicating a book club edition.

The picture(s) are of the actual item for sale. (Pictures are NOT stock photos.)

If you order just this one item, shipping is $4.00 for media rate (for U.S. addresses). If you want priority mail, send your address and we'll calculate it. Insurance optional for orders under $50. Note: If you buy more than one item, make sure you contact us, because we combine shipping.

    MINI GRADING GUIDE
    Because hobbies have different words for describing condition, I'd like to tell you how I grade the types of collectibles I sell.
  • Books are graded with the ABA standard in mind. That means books range from G (good)
  • I don't use a VFN or any form of Mint to describe a book.
  • A book that is NF (near fine) can also be thought of as almost new.
  • A full list of typical conditions range from: G, VG, VG+, VG+/NF, NF, to FN

    Current local sales tax will be charged for items shipped to the State of Washington.
