Product Description:

This 50th anniversary edition offers agorgeously designed cover (and copper print). For this printing, an exhaustive review of all previous editions was done and 300-400 emendations were made (many of which were punctuation changes), to adhere closely to Tolkien's original manuscript and maintain a consistency across the volumes. Includes original maps, notes on the text and a synopsis for each volume

Publisher Description:

The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien's three-volume epic, is set in the imaginary world of Middle-earth - home to many strange beings, and most notably hobbits, a peace-loving "little people," cheerful and shy. Since its original British publication in 1954-55, the saga has entranced readers of all ages. It is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale. Critic Michael Straight has hailed it as one of the "very few works of genius in recent literature." Middle-earth is a world receptive to poets, scholars, children, and all other people of good will. Donald Barr has described it as "a scrubbed morning world, and a ringing nightmare world...especially sunlit, and shadowed by perils very fundamental, of a peculiarly uncompounded darkness." The story of ths world is one of high and heroic adventure. Barr compared it to Beowulf, C.S. Lewis to Orlando Furioso, W.H. Auden to The Thirty-nine Steps. In fact the saga is sui generis - a triumph of imagination which springs to life within its own framework and on its own terms.

Category Description for J.R.R. Tolkien:

 One Ring to rule them all; One Ring to find them; One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them" so begins Tolkien's massive, wonderful tale of the fight against good and evil. I was quite surprised to learn that The Lord of the Rings is technically not a trilogy. It is one novel, made of 6 parts typically printed in 3 volumes for manageability and ease in reading.
