About the Author:

ALAN LEE was born in England in 1947. Inspired by Tolkien's work to pursue his chosen path as an artist of the mythic and fantastic, he has illustrated a wide range of books including Faeries, The Mabinogion, Castles, Merlin Dreams, the centenary edition of The Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit. He is a winner of the Carnegie Medal for his illustrated edition of The Illiad.

J.R.R. TOLKIEN (1892–1973) is the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic and extraordinary works of fiction as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. His books have been translated into more than fifty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

From AudioFile:

This collection of four of Tolkien's short works, dramatized for BBC Radio, is narrated by Sir Michael Hordern, who played Gandalf in the BBC dramatization of THE LORD OF THE RINGS. The stories include "Farmer Giles of Ham," featuring Brian Blessed as an unlikely dragon hunter, and "Smith of Wootton Major," with Paul Copley as a young blacksmith who visits the faerie realm. "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil" is a sequence from THE LORD OF THE RINGS not included in the BBC adaptation of that saga. The story will be familiar to Tolkien devotees, even though it's not the cycle of poems from Tolkien's book, but it will likely confuse most listeners. The highlight of the set is "Leaf by Niggle," a beautiful allegory about art, life, and meaning, featuring Alfred Molina as a beleaguered artist and John Fleming as his neighbor. S.E.S.

Book Description Harper Collins, London, 2008. Hard Cover. Book Condition: As New. J.R.R. Tolkien (illustrator). De Luxe Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A fabulous comprehensive set of the 5 volumes of the De Luxe Editions of Tolkien's works, All books are still sealed in shrinkwrap, so the photos of opened copies are from other identical books. All of the books should be considered to be later impressions, while a couple could be First Impressions I doubt it at this time, as they all have been reprinted numerous time since the original publication. This Collection features a new Black Leather Custom Slipcase to house these five of their 21st Century De Luxe Slipcased Editions. Comprised of the 2008 Harper Collins De Luxe Slipcased Edition of The Tales From the Perilous Realm, still sealed in shrinkwrap. Also included is the 2009 Harper Collins De Luxe Slipcased Edition of The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, with illustrations by Bill Sanderson, still sealed in shrinkwrap. Included as well is the 2013 Harper Collins De Luxe Slipcased Edition of The Fall of Arthur, still sealed in shrinkwrap. The fourth book included is the 2013 Harper Collins De Luxe Slipcased Edition of The Unfinished Tales, still sealed in shrinkwrap. The fifth book included is the 2014 Harper Collins De Luxe Slipcased Edition of Beowulf, A Translation and Commentary, still sealed in shrinkwrap. All books are sealed in shrinkwrap and are in As New condition, very likely at this point to be later impressions, though some may still be First Impression copies. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, Limited Editions, and odd bits of ephemera are available. As New / No Jacket, as Issued. Bookseller Inventory # 1680
