Item Description: Ace Books, New York, 1965. Mass Market Paperback. Book Condition: Near Fine. Jack Gaughan (illustrator). First Thus. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. These are the infamous Ace Books "Pirated Edition" from 1965. The opening salvo of the "War over Middle- Earth". A Near Fine set of this notorious edition. The only minor fault to these books is the edges of Return of the King shows some light rubbing with minor color loss, and one minor crease at the top of the spine area. The other two books are Near Fine with no creasing and only the slightest rubbing. 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 darkened pages, from the highly acidic paper, with the exterior wraps very bright and clean. No previous owners names, no other marks or writing noted. A custom black faux leather slipcase featuring Tolkien's Ring and Eye device on one side with Tengwar Title and Author, and his JRRT monogram gilt stamped on the case. Makes for a beautiful presentation of these exceptional books. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / No Jacket, as Issued.
