About this item

The Fellowship of the Ring, part one of J.R.R. Tolkiens 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 collectors 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 authors 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 weve ever produced.

Great edition of Tolkien's fantasy masterpiece

Customer review by Prairiehawk

5.0 stars by Prairiehawk

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.

Great book, not so great service.

Customer review by CBinKY

5.0 stars by CBinKY

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.

This book is GORGEOUS and Wal-Mart sells it for much cheaper than other places that I have found it online. WELL worth the money. Similar quality books sell for much more. Bought as a gift and the recipient was ecstatic.
