LORD OF THE RINGS J.R.R. TOLKIEN 
BALLANTINE WHITE BOX 
1965 ISSUE REMINGTON COVER

Very original and vintage in as-found condition. This is the very first authorized US paperback printing from 1965 featuring the Remington Wilderness Triptych cover in the promotional white box. 
Another fellow ebay lister posted the super helpful information below: 

"As you may be aware, after the ACE paperback debacle, Tolkien changed the text for the Second and Fully Authorized editions of The Lord of the Rings release worldwide in 1965. This is the text that all copies now follow, even though some of the copyright dates have been renewed. The original AUTHORIZED paperback editions of The Lord of the Rings were released in the USA by Ballantine just before Christmas in 1965 featuring the now famous triptych by Barbara Remington entitled Wilderness on the covers of the books, as shown above. For the uninitiated, a triptych are three pictures when laid side by side form a singular larger picture.

This edition was the first Ballantine Books printing of the "Second and Fully Authorized Edition" and came in a slipcase with a matching cover. Over the ensuing 6 years, there were over 30 printings with this cover on it, and it was not changed until 1971 when the covers with Tolkien's own drawings were released.

ONLY the very first release from 1965 had this case and a few of the second printings. It is extremely rare as there were very few of them made.

-The Fellowship of the Ring

-The Two Towers

-The Return of the King

Each book states FIRST PRINTING: October, November & December respectively, 1965. It is one of the rarest sets of The Lord of the Rings ever to appear in print in the US."

Box with books measures 7" x 3" x 4.25". 

Part 1 is in great condition and has obvious signs of use. 

Part 2 is in excellent condition with a crinkled spine and almost no signs of use.

Part 3 looks like it has never been cracked opened. It is beautiful. 

Box has signs of age and use: light and minor scuffs and tears.
