I'd read the paperbacks in the seventies and then watched the films. However, writing this up has me wondering if I can do it one more time. I never say this about my books but if I was collecting Tolkien I would be happy to have this copy on my shelf.A close cost estimate can be provided if I have the destination zip code. International buyers need to contact me before ordering.
