About this Item: London: HarperCollinsPublishers (Harper Collins) 1996 First Edition, First Impression 8vo xiv,482pp ISBN 0-261-10337-7, 1996. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Ex-Library, Near Fine original dark blue cloth, corners very slightly bumped, tape stains to boards, edges lightly tanned as is common with this edition, minimal library markings, specifically small piece of magnetic tape to front pastedown, small stamp to ffep, small label attached to rear end-paper, otherwise internally Fine throughout, in Near Fine intact complete Dust Wrapper. A very attractive copy of the original HarperCollins First Edition, of which there was only one print-run, despite being ex-library. For years, rumors circulated that HarperCollins pulped part of the print-run for this title. However, Neil Holford at TolkienBooks. net has the following information: according to David Brawn at HarperCollins, "2,525 copies were printed for the trade, plus 1,565 for BCA, all in the same run. Unlike many book club editions of books at that time, for this series the books always came from the same print run so there would often have been no discernible difference between them in terms of quality. However, BCA sold their copies very quickly and then bought 500 copies from the trade run, rapidly shortening the shelf life of the edition.". Seller Inventory # 14611

About this Item: Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman/Harper Collins 1977, 1983-1996, London, 1977. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 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. Unless otherwise noted, our first editions are first printings. Seller Inventory # 023976
