THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy by J. Tolkien Three volume set, hardbound with slipcase.

Each volume has matching number (#180) Bound in green cloth over dark green bonded leather spine.Housed in a matching cloth slipcase. 50 full page color illustration (prints on coated paper) by the artist are spread among the three books. The paper, while thin, is of good quality. Ribbon markers bound into each volume.
Essentially, this would be an almost new copy if it weren't for two defects: First, the cloth slipcase has a scuff on one side. Second, the bonded leather bindings do not hold up well. They rub against each other and the slipcase due to the tight fit. As a result, there is some abrasion of the dark leather along the edges of the hinge. Please see the close up photos for details.Overall, we grade this copy as very good in very good slipcase with defects as noted. Despite these defects, it is still a handsome set to be treasured. And, with a limitation of only 250 copies, it seems to be very seldom offered for sale. The item "Deluxe Centenary Ltd Edition #180/250 LORD OF THE RINGS J.
