As you can see from the accompanying images, these paperbacks are in beautiful shape. The bindings are all tight and square. Almost zero chipping on any of the edges. The coloring of the text blocks are uniform on each book, no stains or handling wear. Just the slightest hint of tanning at the top edge of the spines.

These books may have never been read! The “Fellowship” has a spine crease, but being that the binding is square, my guess is that it is not a reading crease but likely from the printing process (see images).

Each book states “First Printing” with the respective dates of October, November, December 1965 following the order of each subsequent book in the series.

The slipcase, like the books is also in amazing condition. It is tight and square, no splits or tears. The only mild imperfections are: slight fading on top surface along with a small dark colored spot (perhaps a price tag at one time?) and two small dark spots on the spine. No writing anywhere and the bottom doesn’t even really show any shelf wear.

This boxed set will make an amazing addition to your collection.
Enjoy!

Will ship priority with full insurance.
