Item Description: Ace Books, New York, 1965. Mass Market Paperback. Book Condition: Near Fine. Jack Gaughan (illustrator). First Thus. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. These are the infamous Ace Books "Pirated Edition" from 1965. The opening salvo of the "War over Middle- Earth". A Near Fine set of this notorious edition. The only minor fault the edges of the Return show some light rubbing with minor color loss, and a little minor darkening to the spine of The Two Towers. The textblock of all three books are quite tanned, about the norm for these early paperbacks made with highly acidic paper. These are the only paperback 'Lord of the Rings' to be printed based on later printings of the 1st Edition. All others were based on the revised 2nd editions. Houghton Mifflin, seemed to have been in technical violation of the law by having imported too many copies printed by Allen & Unwin. Ace Books took notice of the sales and overseas production of the books, (which are marked, 'Printed in Great Britain'), determined that LotR's had fallen into the public domain in the United States, and launched their own edition in spring 1965. {Hammond and Anderson, pg 104} So to secure their American copyright, Tolkien was asked to submit new material to create a new Edition, and so secure their copyright beyond question. Tolkien conducted a personal campaign against Ace Books in letters to his American fans. The "War over Middle-earth' was fought in the popular press, with the publicity contributing to increased sales and popularity. Within a year, Ace gave in to public pressure. They agreed to print no more copies, and they negotiated royalties to be paid to Tolkien. As mentioned this set of books has darkened pages, from the highly acidic paper, with the exterior wraps very bright and clean. A previous owners names to the verso of the front cover of the Fellowship, no other marks or writing noted. A custom red leather slipcase featuring Tolkien's Ring and Eye device on one side with Tengwar Title and Author, and his JRRT monogram gilt stamped on the rear of the case. Makes for a beautiful presentation of these exceptional books. 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. Near Fine / No Jacket, as Issued.
