Sorry, but I don't offer valuations. If you own this item yourself, and want to find out what it's worth, then the best advice I can give is to check eBay completed items to see if one similar has been sold recently.

    I have a copy of this book, pristine condition including the box, which has some wear on the corners.

    I have a 1972 second impression of this beauty, still in its original slipcase, which I got as a 21st birthday present. The book remains in virgin condition, but the slipcase (which is of remarkably lightweight construction considering the quality of the book itself) is a bit chipped on several edges. The most amazing thing about the product is the ethereal weight of the paper - it’s the thinnest I’ve ever seen used on a book, and must have been a real bugger to print on!

    I have a mint condition copy of 1978 with original box, wrapped in frosted glass interleave paper in a wooden box which I stained in Walnut then clear varnished then put on brass hinges and clasp with a brass plate on the box stating “Lord of the Rings, 1978 Deluxe Edition”.
