The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship of the Ring. The Return of the King.
These are unique, and are mine and have always been mine, but never opened or read! They were bought in 1973 from W. Smith in Banbury, Oxfordshire as a present for me in my teens, but I was totally disinterested in them, despite the cult at the time!
So, they went in a box, and stayed in various cupboards in my different houses for 50 years! They are, not only, unread, but I have never opened the pages.
As you can see from the photos, I was careful not to open the spine of the book and you can also see the crisp, original printer's folds of the maps. The red tops (pages) are gently aged, but not from sunlight, as they may have been if left on a shelf. The dust covers are all intact, no tears, just some patina where they have been moved into different boxes and checked every so often. The dust covers have never come off, but just looking (for the photo) the red fabric hard cover is really red, and the gold lettering sharp, and as new!These are privately owned and always have been carefully stored, away from sunlight, dust and wandering fingers and are, effectively, new/old stock, never, EVER read - not even opened!
