Comprising: The Children Of Húrin; Beren And Lúthien; The Fall Of Gondolin


Three volumes, all first editions. Octavo. All in the original publisher’s bindings, in the pictorial dustwrappers by Alan Lee.


A fine set in near fine dustwrappers.


First editions of each of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Great Tales Of Middle-earth, the narratives of The Silmarillion he thought worthy of standalone publication:

“He saw three ‘Great Tales’ of the Elder Days (Beren And Lúthien, the Children of Húrin, and the Fall of Gondolin) as works suffienciently complete in themselves as not to demand knowledge of the great body of legend known as The Silmarillion” (Christopher Tolkien, preface to The Children Of Húrin, 2007).
