The Lord of the Rings. Three Volumes: The Fellowship of the Ring; The Two Towers; The Return of The King. London: The Readers’ Union Edition, 1960. First Edition Thus. All three volumes in good condition with original dust jacket and folding maps to rear. With some staining and chipping (with a little loss) to spine of dust jackets, and previous owner’s name to front free endpaper of each volume, otherwise a nice clean set.
The sole impression published by the Readers Union, sold to members at a price of 12s., presumably in December 1960 in time for Christmas.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s three volume masterpiece is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale—a story of high and heroic adventure set in the unforgettable landscape of Middle-earth.
