Lord of the Rings: Old School

Nice find at the Friends of the Library sale today. A boxed set of the The Lord of the Rings with the original Ballantine old school covers. This was the authorized edition that Ballantine rushed out to compete with the infamous ACE 'pirated' editions. The box was just a little scuffed but the paperbacks are almost perfect. I didn't own these editions so pretty nifty. The cost? Three dollars. A buck per book and no charge for the box.
