The Books (Large)

A first edition of the Dutch translation of The Lord of the Rings. Called ‘In de Ban van de Ring’. Which means ‘Under the spell of the Ring’, no Lord in the Dutch translation.

Back in 1956 it was the very first translation of the book, and it was also the first work of Tolkien translated into Dutch.

Only 3000 printed. And I own one of them. Not in the best condition, but hey, I DO have it 🙂 Very proud to own them.
