The Lord of the Rings [9780008471286]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

For the first time ever, a very special edition of the classic masterpiece, illustrated throughout in colour by the author himself and with the complete text printed in two colours.

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 and epic adventure has touched the hearts of young and old alike. Over 150 million copies of its many editions have been sold around the world, and occasional collectors' editions become prized and valuable items of publishing.

This one-volume hardback edition contains the complete text, fully corrected and reset, which is printed in red and black and features, for the very first time, thirty colour illustrations, maps and sketches drawn by Tolkien himself as he composed this epic work. These include the pages from the Book of Mazarbul, marvellous facsimiles created by Tolkien to accompany the famous 'Bridge of Khazad-dum' chapter. Also appearing are two removable fold-out maps drawn by Christopher Tolkien revealing all the detail of Middle-earth.

Sympathetically packaged to reflect the classic look of the first edition, this new edition of the bestselling hardback will prove irresistible to collectors and new fans alike.


J.R.R.Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into 60 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

    Lord of the Rings book Is Amazing

    Posted by Angel J on 11th Jan 2022

    Amazing art illustration inside the book, beautiful elvish print over the side of the books, was in immaculate condition. Single volume edition so you don't have to carry 3 books, came with a map drawn by tolkien himself. Very pleased

    Birthday Present

    Posted by Becky on 10th Dec 2021

    This is a birthday present for a dear friend of mine so I can't really review the actual book. But it arrived in plenty of time (despite the season and current situations I won't mention)
    I was also pleased with the presentation box it came in, it will make the gift all the more special. The price is also something that warrants this item with 5 stars, I've looked on other sites and this was the lowest price I could find. Definitely recommend, whether its a present for a loved one or a treat for yourself!
