First Deluxe edition first printing 1976. Hardback book is tight clean and square. Boards sharp and clean, title gilt perfect. Text block clean, white edges. The pages are crisp and unblemished. Feels unread. Fine condition. Box grades near fine, with tiny gentle rubs to corners, and larger rub to the lower area of the front of the box affecting the gloss finish, which may not be apparent on the photos. The paper label has a couple of very feint 3mm grey marks, in the title area. The label has a few small wrinkles to the edges, which is a binding issue rather than subsequent damage. The original wrap round protective tissue for the book is torn but present. Note we do not use stock images, the book pictured is the book described. An overall fine example of this collectible deluxe edition of this classic Tolkien title. This edition has the printers blue speckled edges, and colour endpaper maps.
