The Return of The King First Edition by J. R. R Tolkien.
Original red cloth boards with darkened spine. Slight marking on covers and spine cocked. Internally very clean with good tight binding. Library book plate on front paste down. Some brown spotting on front free page. Maps intact on rear free page which add an interesting and rare feature. Dust jacket is clean and free from marks. Darkened spine with chipped top and bottom edges. Overall a tidy first edition first impression The Return of the King which will become increasingly rare as time goes on.
J. R. R. Tolkien originally planned his Lord of the Rings tales as a set of six books yet the final publication was in fact a set of three books. The Return of the King is the third and final volume of the notable trilogy, the Lord of the Rings. It follows the books of Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers.
