Item Description: Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman/Harper Collins 1977, 1983-1996, London, 1977. Hardcover. First Edition. A complete set of the first editions of these tales, poems, and songs underlay The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien began writing these tales while in college, 40 years before LOTR was published. He was a student of philology, the study of historical linguistics and the rules by which languages evolve, and in his writing he invented archaic languages and the stories told in those languages, and then tracked the evolution of both the stories and the language until they became the legends and mythology that informed Middle Earth. This is part of what gives the Trilogy its powerful sense of reality and immediacy, but the stories are compelling in and of themselves, beyond the degree to which they inform his masterpiece. In particular, these stories, most of them written between 1913 and the early 1940s, give the lie to the simplistic notion that Tolkien's trilogy is a mere analogue for the conflicts involved in World War II. If anything, it was the First World War -- with its senseless, mechanized destruction on a heretofore unimaginable scale -- that influenced Tolkien in his view that battle between the forces of good and evil was not a struggle of ideologies so much as one between a world view in harmony with nature and one that focused on unchecked industrial development. Published over the course of more than a dozen years, complete sets are difficult to assemble as all of the volumes had small first printings, and some were positively tiny -- 1500 copies or so. Volume 5 has a small nick at the upper rear spine fold; otherwise a fine set in fine, unclipped dust jackets. The Silmarillion and Volumes 1, 2 and 4 have no printed prices, as issued; Volume 4 has an A&U price sticker. Volumes 10 and 11 have printed prices on the flaps (in contrast to the unprinted export edition dust jackets, which, by the usual standards of the publication process, probably preceded those with printed prices). The ultimate history of the worlds that underlay The Lord of the Rings. Bookseller Inventory # 023976

Item Description: George Allen and Unwin, London, 1977. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Tolkien (illustrator). 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. A fine first edition, first impression, first printing of the First Age in J R R Tolkien's World, published by George Allen & Unwin in London in 1977. This tight, bright 365 page book is bound in publisher's original blue boards with a gold emblem and titles on the spine. The white book block has a blue top edge. The fine dust cover has emblems designed by Tolkien and a pristine A3 map of BELERIAND and the Lands to the North folded and tipped in to the rear of the book. This is the true first edition with the UK price shown on the dust jacket, which is unclipped and in fine condition. The book is in very fine condition with no marks or other blemishes. The Silmarillion was published by his son Christopher from notebooks written by his father long before the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings were developed and it is unusual in that it was published 4 years after Tolkien died. It contains a small number of other stories including Tolkien's creation myth Ainulindale. "The Silmarillion is an account of the Elder Days, or the First Age of the World. In The Lord of the Rings were narrated the great events at the end of the Third Age; but the tales of The Silmarillion are legends deriving from a much deeper past, when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in the Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils" - (from the Foreword)- The three jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. It is a work of great imagination illustrating the conflict between the desire to dominate the world and the creative power springing from the development of inner talents. This particular book however looks as though it has not been read. Clear removable film protects the dust-wrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 000119
