First edition thus first printing. Slipcased set of two Hardback books which are tight clean and square. Boards sharp and clean, title gilt perfect. Text block clean, and white. Both books feel unread. Fine condition. The book jackets both grade fine, with only very minor crimping to edges where the books have been slid in and out of the slipcase. The Lord of the Rings has a very light rub to the gilt on the head of the spine. The Slipcase is near fine with expected light shelf wear to the lower panel, a light bump to the upper edge, and a touch of rubbing to the gilt at the rear top edge. None of which detracts from the beauty of this copy. Overall a lovely fine, and uncommon slipcased box set of books. For grading accuracy books are photographed without a protective book cover. Note we do not use stock images, the set pictured is the book described. Please note : this set is very heavy (4800g) all overseas purchasers will be charged additional shipping. Please contact bookseller for exact price. Items maybe sent by courier to some locations due to the total weight. Any questions please contact bookseller. A super example of this limited edition collectible slipcased set. The Hobbit is the 60th anniversary of the original publication edition, originally issued in 1997, with full page colour plates by Alan Lee. The Lord of the Rings is the originally issued 1991 edition produced to commemorate the centenary of Tolkien's birth. There are 50 full color plates by Alan Lee throughout. Both books in the set are fantastic editions for any collector, and in our opinion these editions are the most attractive versions of the illustrated Tolkien novels.
