About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for THE RETURN OF THE KING : BEING THE THIRD PART OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS by Tolkien, J.R.R..

Description:

True first printing of this title, in the third variant* Text on p. 49 displays both the damaged (i.e., slipped) text, and the number 4 (marking the signature) is present at the bottom of this page., making this the third variant*. Another indicator of variant would be the final line of text on p. 281 in which the gap in the word Men (i.e. Men) has now been closed. This is what is considered the second state (An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography). Red cloth, faded topstain, shelf rubbing to top and bottom of spine. One dime-sized spot to front board, and some discoloration to upper portion of rear board where exposed to greater sunlight than those areas below, which were safely snugged-up against other books on the shelf Bumps and wear to top corners, nudges and wear to bottom corners. Foxing to free endpapers. Map of Gondor (Rohan and Mordor too) in fine condition, and apparently seldom opened in 58 years. *Concerning these "variants" An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography states: "It should be noted that all of the variants detailed (above), and the priorities assigned to them, are of manufacture only. They would have been published simultaneously" Here it is -- A WORKINGMAN'S COPY of the true first edition of one of the great fantasy epics of the past five hundred years. Most likely unbeknownst to the masses when this copy was first issued -- purchased from the library of a literary scholar who no doubt "shared" with Tolkien, the presence of the same reference works in their respective libraries.
