9780007136582: The Lord of the Rings - 3 book boxset (hardbacks)

Comprising three oversized hardback volumes housed in a full-colour slipcase, this edition of Tolkien’s classic masterpiece is fully illustrated in watercolour throughout by the acclaimed and award-winning artist, Alan Lee.

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. Well over 100 million copies of its many editions have been sold around the world, and occasional collectors’ editions become prized and valuable items of publishing.

With the epic trilogy now being released on film, images of the characters and landscapes have become eagerly sought after. Much of the look of the movies is based on Alan Lee’s paintings, giving this Centenary edition of Tolkien’s great work new relevance for the ever-growing number of fans.

Product Description:

Title: The Fellowship of the Ring( Being the First Part of the Lord of the Rings) <>Binding: Hardcover <>Author: J.R.R.Tolkien <>Publisher: HoughtonMifflin

Review:

For those who have not read Tolkien's epic fantasy, or for those looking to replace a worn and battered copy, this three-volume The Lord of the Rings box set is a great place to start. Comprising the three novels that make up the Lord of the Rings sequence-- The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King--the whole set is presented in matching matt black packaging with embossed runes and coloured rings. Of course, beneath the fancy covers lies a great epic story of good versus evil, perhaps one of the greatest stories ever told. Attractively presented--and at a great price--there really is no excuse not to have this in your collection. So go on, give it a try; once you've entered Tolkien's fantastic imagination, you'll find it hard to leave. --Jonathan Weir
