Description:

Second US. Editions With Tolkien's Textual RevisionsA Fine Set of Later Impressions in the Original Slip-CaseTOLKIEN, J.R.R. The Lord of the Rings. Part One: The Fellowship of the Ring. Part Two: The Two Towers. Part Three: The Return of the King. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1965 [1.e. 1978]. Second American editions, later impressions. Three octavo volumes. (8 3/4 x 5 9/16 inches; 221 x 142 mm). [2, blank], [ii], 423, [5, blank]; 352; [5]-416, 417-440, (index), [4, blank] pp. Illustrations throughout by Tolkien. A fold-out map to rear of each volume. Publisher's black cloth, front boards decoratively stamped with 'The Eye of Suaron' in bronze and silver, green and silver, and purple and gold. Spines decoratively lettered in matching colors. Orange-yellow, pale green, and purple end-papers respectively with matching stained top edges. A fine set in the original near fine dust jackets. Housed in the original printed cardboard slipcase (dated 1978).By the mid-1960s the novel had become a cultural phenomenon. Tolkien undertook various textual revisions to produce a version of the book that would be published with his consent and establish an unquestioned US copyright. This text became the Second Edition of The Lord of the Rings, published in 1965. The Lord of the Rings presents a bibliographical Gordian knot and "Herculean task" (Hammond) to unravel. The main points distinguishing the first impressions and first state dust jackets are all present in this handsome set: The enduring popularity of The Lord of the Rings has led to numerous references in popular culture, the founding of many societies by fans of Tolkien's works, and the publication of many books about Tolkien and his works. The Lord of the Rings has inspired, and continues to inspire, artwork, music, films and television, video games, and subsequent literature. Award-winning adaptations of The Lord of the Rings have been made for radio, theater, and film. In 2003, it was named Britain's best-loved novel of all time in the BBC's The Big Read.
