Item Description: Ace Books, New York, 1965. Mass Market Paperback. Book Condition: Near Fine. Jack Gaughan (illustrator). First Thus. 12mo - over 6?" - 7?" tall. The Lord of the Rings, Comprised of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and the Return of the King, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The Infamous Ace "Pirated" Edition in Custom Slipcase. from 1965. The opening salvo of the "War over Middle- Earth". A very nice Near Fine condition matched set of this notorious edition. This is the only paperback 'Lord of the Rings' to be printed based on later printings of the 1st Edition. All others were based on the revised (2nd) editions. Houghton Mifflin, seemed to have been in technical violation of the law by having imported too many copies printed by Allen & Unwin. Ace Books took notice of the sales and overseas production of the books, (which are marked, 'Printed in Great Britain'), determined that LotR's had fallen into the public domain in the United States, and launched their own edition in spring 1965. {Hammond and Anderson, pg 104} So to secure their American copyright, Tolkien was asked to submit new material to create a new Edition, and so secure their copyright beyond question. Tolkien conducted a personal campaign against Ace Books in letters to his American fans. The "War over Middle-earth' was fought in the popular press, with the publicity contributing to increased sales and popularity. Within a year, Ace gave in to public pressure. They agreed to print no more copies, and they negotiated royalties to be paid to Tolkien. This set of books has slightly yellowed pages, from the highly acidic paper, but no creasing to the spines, with the exterior wraps very bright and clean. Each book has 2 black marks to the top of the textblock, remainder marks? No previous owners names, no other marks or writing noted. A custom slipcase featuring Tolkien's Ring and Eye device on one side, and his JRRT monogram gilt stamped on the case. Makes a beautiful presentation of these exceptional books.
