This is the first edition of the first translation into any language of LOTR, so it occupies a special place for collectors. There were only 3000 copies printed and this edition was never printed again. Copies with both the books and the original dust jackets in very good condition can cost up to 1000 € or more. Because only one of the three dust jackets on this copy are undamaged (except for normal wear) and the books themselves are in good, but not very good, condition, I paid a fifth of that after an on-line auction. But unlike the other 2999 copies, this one is mine.
