J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, 1974 paperbacks, First UK edition, Nicest
The first UK editions were these 2nd printings, first printings were the first USA edition. This is a very iconic set for fans of a certain age. It was the first to use Tolkien's own art on the covers. Scuffing to all edges, read several times, covers are the original color but the spine colors are faded.
Includes slipcase/band that goes around the books which is worse for wear. These have had the covers laminated which makes the colors as new, especially on the spines which are always faded, We wouldn't normally sell laminated books, however examples of these with original spine colours are so rare we are making an exception.
