The continuing interest in Tolkiens works is exemplified by Amazons new series set in Tolkiens Middle-earth in its Second Age. Will be posted in bubblewrap and cardboard layers to preserve their condition. Dustjackets will be protected in removable clear cellophane when delivered. These clear protectors were removed for the images of the spread-out jackets, but are in place in all the other photos where the dustjackets are shown. A nice original set bought together in 1965 with their original dustjackets in an aged condition looking like antique parchment.
The Fellowship of the Ring: the most handled member of the set with an about very good book in a jacket that has repairs with narrow strips of thin paper to its rear, having formerly been parted down its spine folds and the fold between its front panel and the front inside flap. Additionally, the top inch of the jackets spine has been replaced with a matching blank piece of paper from another Lord of the Rings first edition i. Exactly the same paper and the same age. There is a damp mark in the upper left corner of the jackets rear panel, which is faintly reflected on the rear board of the book. However, the book is complete and intact with fresh-looking pages, although judging by the jacket this seems to be the only volume in the set that its former owners actually read.
The Two Towers: a very good book in a very good jacket. There is a touch of faint patination near the lower edges of the boards, something that is quite common in old cloth-bound books and a relic of the cloth colouring process. The jacket has a couple of short tear repairs that are hard to see. The Return of the King: a very good book in a very good jacket.
