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 standard harcover edition of the concluding volume of The Lord of the Rings includes a large format fold-out map and extensive appendices. As the Shadow of Mordor grows across the land, the Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures. Aragorn, revealed as the hidden heir of the ancient Kings of the West, has joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard, and takes part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by Orcs, escape into Fangorn Forest and there encounter the Ents. Gandalf has miraculously returned and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman. Sam has left his master for dead after a battle with the giant spider, Shelob; but Frodo is still alive -- now in the foul hands of the Orcs. And all the while the armies of the Dark Lord are massing as the One Ring draws ever nearer to the Cracks of Doom.

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.
