Product Description

Amazon Review

Let's face it--even some adults find Tolkien's mammoth fantasy a daunting mouthful but children now have this special seven-book box set of The Lord of The Rings to make the epic tale just that bit easier to chew on. Split into its seven constituent parts, these slim volumes tell the ageless tale of young Frodo's quest to destroy The Ring and defeat the forces of evil. It's beautifully presented in a black presentation box with the movie logo and an illustration on the side and the spines of the books also form the movie logo. A contemporary look and plenty of "cool appeal" will grab kids' interest and ensure they don't miss out on reading this classic of the genre. --Jonathan Weir --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

A luxury leather bound cased edition printed on Bible paper of the world's most collectable book.

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

The deluxe edition contains the complete text of the revised Second Edition, first published in 1994. Quarter-bound in black leather and cloth and protected in its own slipcase, the book is printed on fine India paper, making it much slimmer than its standard hardback counterpart. The book includes Christopher Tolkien's two-colour maps of Middle-earth and Gondor as endpapers and is limited to a print run of just 1'000 copies

No serious Tolkien enthusiast will want to miss this opportunity to own the definitive text of the twentieth century's greatest book in this sumptuous deluxe edition.
