A unique, beautiful and uniform early set of the first edition but mixed impressions of the much loved Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The Fellowship of the Ring: 7th impression, Oct 1957. The Two Towers: 5th impression 1957. The Return of the King: 4th impression, May 1958.All published by George Allen & Unwin Ltd in red cloth with maps and dust wrappers. Internally they look as if they have never been read. These early impressions are increasingly hard to find without much more wear and tear, especially to the jackets. So please look at photos as these form part of the description. Key things I can spot.
The Fellowship of the Ring has a paper signature block as per photos. There is also a faint blue mark above the word the and the letters FE and through the E RIN as per photos. There is very minor rubbing at the base and a small red mark at the top right of the back cover as per photo 12.The Two Towers - there is a faint red rubbing at the bottom of the letter H in the. Along the actual hard cover external spine there is some minor darkening. The Return of the King.
There appears to be minor water mark when looking too down at the book about an inch long and 3/4 inch wide. Also the back cover has a tiny fold in the top right hand corner.
