The film tie-in edition of the popular, one-volume, edition of the Book of the Century, featuring an exclusive image from the film.
Since it was first published in 1954, The Lord of the Rings has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike. Nearly 100 million copies of its many editions have been sold around the world, and occasional collectors’ editions become prized and valuable items of publishing.
Now, the epic fantasy is to be filmed, with the first part of the movie trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, being released simultaneously worldwide on 14 December 2001. Already, the hype surrounding the filming of this monumental work has reached fever pitch, and images of the characters and landscape have become eagerly sought after. In order to whet the appetites of the millions of fans around the globe we will be publishing a special edition of the popular one-volume paperback, featuring an exclusive early – as yet unseen – image from the film.
A world exclusive edition of the Book of the Century, soon to be revealed as the movie experience of a lifetime.

‘Masterpiece? Oh yes, I’ve no doubt about that.’
‘Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the 20th century.’
‘An extraordinarily imaginative work, part saga, part allegory, and wholly exciting.’
‘When it comes to the nation’s favourite books, one title runs rings round all the others. J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings was chosen by an astonishing 20 per cent of readers in the survey conducted by W H Smith.’

"the English-speaking world is divided into those who have read 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit' and those who are going to read them."
Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him the Rings of Power – the means by which he will be able to rule the world. All he lacks in his plan for dominion is the Ruling Ring, which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Bagggins.
In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.
"A Story magnificently told, with every kind of colour and movement and greatness."
