Original ACE paperback of Lord of the Rings Volume #2 - The Two Towers. The ACE paperback trilogy was the first printing of The Lord of the Rings in paperback in America. The printing by ACE was unauthorized and landed ACE in a bit of a PR quagmire, which led to a discontinuation of printing and royalties for Tolkien. This copy a bit sunned at spine. Scattered foxing and toning to pages and boards. A solid copy overall. Rego Park, NY Juniur High School stamp on first page (no other plates or markings).
