About this Item: The Folio Society / George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1976. First (and only) impression. The scarce variant issue of the first Folio Society edition, in itself the scarcest English language edition of this title from any publisher. The Folio Society edition was prepared alongside George Allen & Unwin's [GAU] Deluxe edition of 1976, the printing and binding of both being undertaken by W & J Mackay of Chatham who were to prepare the small Folio Society edition from the GAU sheets, the first signature to include a new title and copyright leaf bearing the Folio Society's name and device; these specially prepared sheets to be cased in the in the Society's distinctive binding of quarter leather and brown cloth; a striking contemporary design by Jeff Clements featuring a labyrinth motif blocked in gold to the spine and front board. However, the edition prepared for the Folio Society included a number of copies bound-up with original GAU sheets. The number of these variant copies is unknown, nor is it known why the mismatch of cases and sheets took place; the simultaneous preparation of two editions would argue for simple error. It may be that when the specially prepared sheets reached the bindery it was found that an inadequate number were available for casing and a few were quietly taken from the much larger GAU run to make-up the numbers. Whatever the reason, neither Mackays nor the Folio Society appear to have been aware of the confusion at the time. Very good condition, some minor scuffs to the spine otherwise without faults. Publisher's original brown card slipcase, rather rubbed and soiled with one short tear. An attractive example of this very scarce book. Seller Inventory # 2355

First Deluxe Edition, second impression of the ever-popular classic tale, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again. This lovely book is in exceptional condition, beautifully bound in original black cloth with gilt design to the front board and gilt lettering to the spine. There is the slightest rubbing to the boards, but apart from this the book is tightly bound and inside the pages are clean and bright and beautifully illustrated, with all illustrations still present and appearing unread and as new. The book is housed in its original slipcase, which apart from some very minor bumping to the edges, is in excellent condition as well. In all, this is as near perfect a copy of the deluxe edition as any I have seen and would be the perfect addition to any Tolkien collection. Seller Inventory # 298a

About this Item: Allen & Unwin, London, 1969. Original Cloth. Condition: Very Good Plus. J.R.R. Tolkien (illustrator). First Thus. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, De Luxe Edition, by George Allen & Unwin. This is the 1st impression of the one volume De Luxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings, published by Allen & Unwin in 1969. A Very Good Plus example of a highly collectable book. The only minor fault is a bit of rubbing to the gilt in the upper corner of the top compartment on the spine, and the black buckram cloth is also very lightly faded on the spine, due to exposure to light. The slipcase shows some minor rubbing to the edges, but has protected the book very well for almost 50 years. This edition is printed on India Paper, making the full 3 volumes bound into a single volume, only 1 inch thick. The black buckram cloth has the Tolkien design depicting the Numenorean throne with 'Elendil' in tengwar, stamped on upper cover in gilt, silver and green. Mottled black and grey wove endpapers, all edges trimmed and speckled light green. Housed in the original publishers slipcase, only the 1st & 2nd impressions were issued with the slipcase. Both maps bound in, and in Near Fine condition, no tears, extra folds, or loss noted. An excellent example of this wonderful edition. 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. Very Good Plus / No Jacket, as Issued.
