An epic depicting the Great War of the Ring, a struggle between good and evil in Middle-Earth, in which the tiny Hobbits play a key role.

The Fellowship of the Ring, part one of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic masterpiece, first reached these shores on October 21, 1954, arriving, as C. S. Lewis proclaimed, "like lightning from a clear sky." Fifty years and nearly one hundred million American readers later comes a beautiful new one-volume collector's edition befitting the stature of this crown jewel of our list. With a text fully corrected under the supervision of Christopher Tolkien to meet the author's exacting wishes, two large-format fold-out maps, a ribbon placemarker, gilded page edges, a color insert depicting Tolkien's own paintings of the Book of Mazarbul and exceptionally elegant and sturdy overall packaging housed within an attractive slipcase, this edition is the finest we've ever produced.

The Lord of the Rings is really one long story, so why is it usually offered for sale in three volumes? This edition comprises the entire journey of Frodo and his companions from the Shire to Mordor and back again. The dust jacket is a beautiful leather with a soft feel to it, very good in the hands, and the typesetting and binding are perfect. It *is* a little bit large and heavy for comfortable reading, but I've adapted--although I wouldn't buy it for my grandmother.

I ordered this book for my daughter for St. Valentine's Day. It was supposed to arrive on the 15th but it didn't and the following Monday was President's Day, so it did not arrive until the 19th. Then, when it was delivered, it was not well packaged. The book is wrapped in shrink wrap, which is great. But then they just threw it in a box without protecting it. There was paper shoved in around the book to help with the excess area of the box, but not enough of it. And the book was not padded at all to prevent damage. Luckily, there was no major damage done, just a small crumple on the corners. My daughter had already waited long enough and didn't want to send it back so we kept it. But I have to say, I was surprised that the packers did such a poor job. The book itself is wonderful. My daughter loved the fold out maps and thought the cover was really cool with the embossed gold foil. Only 2 very minor things: 1). This picture makes the book look a really beautiful shade of blue. Ours is a very charcoal grey and the emblem on the cover is not as large as what is pictured. Still beautiful. 2.) The fold out maps are really cool, but they were very tricky to unfold without tearing the page where the paper creases. Other than that, couldn't be happier with the book. Just wish their service had been as good.

First off, the book itself is a great book. Deep, eloquent, and long. If that's not your style, still, give one of the, if not the, best fantasy epics of our time a try, it'll be worth it. Second, about the physical book itself, it's beautiful. From the outer sleeve, with Tolkien's original drawing of Barad Dur, to the cover of the bok, with the ring inscription, Elven Rings, and the Eye in gold and red on the cover, and the gilded edges make the book an elegant addition to any library. Also, who can't mention the two-color maps of Middle Earth, and a more detailed map of Mordor and Gondor? They're some of the best I've seen.

The book shipped in about 5 days, which is perfectly normal. I got the black version instead of the blue (which could be my fault for clicking the wrong thing, I'm not sure), which isn't a deal breaker, but it isn't ideal either. The map was slightly bent in on itself and tore a little when I opened it, and a few pages were bent towards the middle. This is no big deal, but sense it's a collectible with a hardcover and a sleeve I took off a star, but I might be nitpicking. Overall, it is great and much cheaper here than other places.

The only thing I have to say is don't get the pages wet cause the gold will come off the edges, other than that this book is perfect!!!
