large 8vo VI, 1193pp and maps. Hardcover in chocolate brown cloth with the Tolkien emblem in gilt on front board and title on spine likewise in gilt with non price-clipped d/w both in excellent condition now protected in clear archival covering. Even with the large text-block, the spine is very sound. Crimson red page mark is also still in good order and soundly attached, text is in excellent condition as are all fifty full colour illustrations too. No foxing or extraneous markings are present either. This edition has the aforementioned colour illustrations that were specially commissioned from the famous English artist and book illustrator Alan Lee to commemorate the centenary of Tolkien’s birth. It also includes Tolkien’s appendices and maps. A great acquisition for Tolkien devotees even newcomers though it is a very large volume.
