Second edition, second printing 1967, Fellowship jacket has more wear and staining, but overall lovely set. Tasteful owners bookplate in the front of each volume.
Jacket come with protective Mylar as shown. As good as they come. The second printing 1967 of the second edition is the most important. Professor Tolkien requested numerous corrections to the second edition that were never made.
He insisted on an immediate reprint. Thereafter, there were few changes to later printings. The second edition printings are now in demand due to the scarcity of first editions. Later printings had large print runs so aren't as scrace. The first and second printings of the second edition remain the most valuable.This item is in the category "Books, Comics & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectable".
