Product Description

About the Author

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father’s death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars For every Fan of Tolkien and Middle-earth 25 Nov 2007
This edition compiles the 4 high valuable Deluxe Edtions of "The Hobbit", "The Lord of the Rings" (both 2004) and "The Silmarillion" and "The Children of Hurin" (2007). But its not just the great look, which not only fits perfectly to the Special Extended DVD Editions of a certain Film-Trilogy, but due to it's plain design it has a certain style - like an old book, that just slipped from Middle-earth to your Bookstore. But also the Text of most of the Editions, has been revised by Chris Tolkien himself to mirror the pefect version of his fathers wishes.
To those, who do not owe the Edtions yet, I can warmly recommend this books. To those, who are not interested in the Silmarillion and The CoH shoul better buy the corresponding US 50th Anniversary Edition of TLotR and those who are not interested in collecting and allready have other Editions of these books, well, those have to consider for themselves wheather to buy this collection or not.

1.0 out of 5 stars The box was not made of real orc skin 18 Dec 2012
By Sir Squiggles - Published on Amazon.com
But if I am to understand that you are enquiring whether I am of Jewish origin, I can only reply that I regret that I appear to have no ancestors of that gifted people. My great-great-grandfather came to England in the eighteenth century from Germany: the main part of my descent is therefore purely English, and I am an English subject--which should be sufficient. I have been accustomed, nonetheless, to regard my German name with pride, and continued to do so throughout the period of the late regrettable war, in which I served in the English army. I cannot, however, forbear to comment that if impertinent and irrelevant inquiries of this sort are to become the rule in matters of literature, then the time is not far distant when a German name will no longer be a source of pride.
