Tolkien ~ Lord Of The Rings Trilogy ~ Hc Set ~ 2nd Edition ~ 1966 ~ Rare:




    Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky
      Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone
    Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die.
      One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie
      One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
      One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
A BEAUTIFUL set!  A physical description follows...

Regarding sales, let me add that I've been collecting art, books, music and "stuff" for over 35 years and have amassed an enormous collection with many duplicates. I am very picky about what I buy (especially in records and books!) In like fashion, I don't like surprises when I buy things from sale so I promise everything I know about this item is in this description.

    *This is a rare set of three hardcover books with unclipped dustjackets as issued being red cloth bound with gilt embellishments on the spines. Bindings are tight and solid and all pages are clear none loose showing a moderate amount of shelfwear to the dustjackets as some of the spine is missing on The Fellowship Of The Rings about 2" up from the bottom and The Two Towers is missing a small amount of the dustjacket at the spine about 1" up from the bottom and the edges and corners on all of them are somewhat worn from shelfwear. The books are in GREAT shape showing a minor amount of shelfwear from handling to the edges and corners. I have placed the dustjackets in Brodarts for safe keeping. This is a really nice set for any Tolkien collector! Enjoy...

For over a decade, I have sold tens of thousands of items on and have only received a handful of complaints about the accuracy in my descriptions. Having met standards for excellence in trading, you may offer with confidence knowing you will get what you THINK you are offerding on! Please check my response. It is a record I am very proud of...

I have LOTS of music items, and tons of books available for purchase. Please check my other offerings to see if there is anything else you might be interested in for combined shipping. There are links above and below and why not bookmark my site to make it easier to find at a later date!

PAYMENT TERMS: Pretty simple. Pay me, I send it! Why Are My Shipping & Handling Costs a Bit Higher than Other Sellers? Please Read on... GUARANTEED DELIVERY OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
I really DO CARE about when and how your product gets to you. Because the post office is so incredibly inept, I ONLY SHIP domestic packages INSURED, which is AUTOMATICALLY INCLUDED in the shipping cost, and that is not free as the post office charges for it. If your parcel gets lost OR damaged in freight, your item will be replaced if one is available OR you will be completely refunded!

IMPORTANT MONEY SAVING TIP! If you are offerding on more than one of my items and would like to SAVE MONEY by COMBINING SHIPPING costs, I will be happy to do so, BUT, YOU MUST WAIT until everything you are offerding on finishes and I send you a combined invoice BEFORE you complete checkout. Once you complete checkout on an item, I cannot go back and combine it with anything else as considers it a closed deal. TRUST ME, I will send you a combined invoice at the end of each item with updated and combined shipping costs and any deal discounts that may apply.

WHEN YOU ARE DONE offerDING, winners agree to pay promptly once they receive a final invoice. All of the payment info you need will follow. California deliveries will require sales tax.


  • I accept Credit Cards, eChecks and electronic transfers with .
  • Unfortunately, direct bank transfers are not offered due to cost and security concerns.
  • As I reside in the USA, all payments must be made in US Dollars & Cents.

    SHIPPING INFO: IMPORTANT!! I can ONLY SHIP to the address as noted in PAYPAL'S "TRANSACTION DETAILS". If you want it shipped to an alternate location, you will need to register that address BEFORE paying or it will be shipped to the registered address.

    Shipping costs will be determined by weight & destination, but media mail postage is FREE within the USA! You may click on the SHIPPING & PAYMENT tab found at the top of the page, just under the item's picture for all shipping options to all destinations both domestic and international. There you will find drop down boxes for your location and you can then use the shipping calculator to determine the correct cost for where you live.

    REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT SHIPPING TIMES:Media Mail (once known as 4th class mail) is a special class of postage for books, music, videos and other printed media available within the US and territories. It is far less expensive than Priority Mail, but - it ..... is ........... slooowwwww!!!! Despite USPS claims of 3-9 day delivery times, MEDIA MAIL CAN actually TAKE UP TO 3 WEEKS to arrive, and their tracking info is frequently not updated until it actually arrives, making that feature pretty useless! PLEASE remember this when you leave response scores as the choice is yours and not my fault if it takes a long time to get there! If you want it in a week or less, you are going to have to bite the bullet and pay for Priority Mail which will get it there in 2-3 working days, 99% of the time, but it is more expensive. Basically, the choice is yours, but if you choose media mail, please don't write to me in 5 days asking where your package is, because the post office will have it and most of the time, they don't have a clue!

    International deliveries all go by Priority Mail and usually arrive within 1-2 weeks. BE AWARE, you may need to pay Customs fees over which I have no control!
