Unfinished Tales Of Numenor And Middle-Earth, Tolkien, J.R.R. George Allen and Unwin, London, 1980.  First Edition, and likely from the first or second impression of the first three impressions by George Allen 1980 of which a total of 44,000 copies were printed. This copy has the print errors page 234 where the first part of each letter on the left hand side of page are cropped; this variant suggests a priority of issue. Jacket is not price clipped (no printed price); all copies of the first 44,000 copies lacked a price on the dust jacket and price was added on as a label. The shades of brown, blue, red and green inks used on the dust jacket vary from impression to impression. This copy has a green grey shade which does not appear to be from fading and is likely a variant. Maroon cloth boards with bright gilt lettering and decoration to spine. Top edge red. Pages are clean and bright with 3 small soil marks on fore edge. Previous owners nameplate on front pastedown; map at rear is neatly detached but in fine condition. Boards are fine except for a small circular light stain to back board; binding firm and straight. Minor wear only to dust jacket including a small stain inside back jacket. A fine rare collector’s copy.    001025  $250
