Publisher's blue cloth lettered in gilt; original first impression illustrated dust jacket by Walter Lorraine, with the "d" in "Frodo" on the tenth line of the back-flap damaged and the photograph of Tolkien on the back panel trimmed straight along the bottom. A very good copy in a good or better dust jacket. Binding is sturdy, light wear to boards, stain to the lower portion of the rear board, minor discoloration to edges of text block. Internally clean and fine but for a lightly dog-eared page. Jacket shows shelfwear and rubbing, closed tear to back panel, chipping to extremities and a minor dampstain to bottom of rear flap.

Binding sturdy, light fraying to board extremities and a small spot of sunning to spine heel. Internally clean. Jacket shows rubbing to front panel and spine, general shelfwear, closed tear to rear panel, dampstain to rear panel and chipping to extremities.
