"The Lord of the Rings"
The Fellowship of the Ring
The Two Towers
The Return of the King

Pub., Harper Collins, 1997. By J.R.R. Tolkien.
Hardcover with slipcase, 1137 pages, approx. size of book: 22.5 x 15cm.

A luxury edition of "The Lord of the Rings". Limited to 1000 copies.
All three books in one volume.
Book is partly leather-bound. The fore-edges are gilded. The pages are made of very thin paper. Book comes complete with cloth-covered cardboard slipcase.
This is the original 1997 edition. There was at least one later edition published in the same or very similar format.

BOOK CONDITION:
Some agewear to the slipcase - evidently the cloth is quite prone to marks etc.. Moderate discolouration on edges of slipcase opening.
Both the book and the slipcase have a few loose threads. Small specks of the gilt decoration have flaked off onto other parts of the cover.
Minor wear on book cover. front corners have a slight inward bend but this is presumed to be original.
There's page-rippling near the front fore-edge. Although it is not visible at the fore-edge when book is closed. This rippling probably has a lot to do with the fineness of the paper. Also some rippling-type undulation further in on the pages, but this could be due the way the book is bound - relating to the sewing of the binding [seen this before].
Otherwise a good tidy copy. No serious faults. No inscriptions found.

* Buyer can return book for full refund if not satisfied [refund includes all shipping costs].
