RETURN OF THE KING

Tolkien J. R. R

London: George Allen & Unwin, 1955. First edition, First Printing with "First Published in 1955" on the copyright page. With the decorated title-page runes designed by the author and with the large folding map at the rear. 8vo, publisher’s original red cloth with gilt lettered spine, t.e.r., in original decorated dustjacket printed in black, red and gold. 416 pp. A very handsome and bright copy, the jacket especially clean and well preserved, ownership stamp to the front pastedown and a bit of offset to the free-fly. FIRST EDITION OF THE FINAL BOOK OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK OF FANTASY OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. The third and final volume of J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" (following The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers) begins in the kingdom of Gondor, which is soon to be attacked by the Dark Lord Sauron. Tolkien though the title was too much of a spoiler, giving away too much of the story and wanted to call it "The War of the Ring". But Allen & Unwin preferred "The Return of the King", and the rest is Middle Earth history.
