About this item

A deluxe edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic tale featuring a beautiful leatherette cover.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.

From Sauron's fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.

When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.

The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gond or; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.

This edition includes the fiftieth anniversary fully corrected text setting an extensive new index.

J. R. R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.

Book was as expected, except the back cover was bent on the lower right corner. Too much to accept it that way. Doesn't look like it was caused by shipping. Purchasing another one before I return the original.

4.0 stars by CouveTimber

Not sure the correct trade term for this, but I call this a "sturdy paperback" -- the cover is protective but flexible. My wife thought this volume looked like a bible, which gives you a good picture of its thickness. But I am impressed that the print is not too small and the book not too heavy or unwieldy for casual reading and toting. If a classically bound, richly illustrated boxed set of the trilogy is not in your budget or you just want a nice traveling version, this edition is a great option.
