THE LORD OF THE RINGSJ R R TOLKIEN This is a hardback bound with maroon leatherette with gilt decorations to the front cover and spine. Published by Guild Publishing, London, in 1981. Back in the early 80's I became a bit of a Tolkien nut! This is my personal copy of the complete trilogy of the Lord of the rings, printed on thin "bible" style paper and beautifully bound. Condition is excellent although there are some minor stains on the opening edges of the pages - not visible when the book is open and no distraction whilst reading though In (almost) perfect condition from a smoke and pet free home. No marks or inscriptions. I package all items with great care and always send promptly - usually the same day payment is received! (This is my first sale, but check out my husband's100% feedback for reference & confidence: http://myworld./alanbeagley/&_trksid=p3984.m1435.l2754 ) We are having a bit of a clear out, so do take a look at my other listings for The Hobbit, The Silmarillion and other Tolkien books. Postage can be combined if bidding for more than one book - contact me for details.
