Product Description

Synopsis

It has been very difficult over the years for collectors to know just what has been produced from the works of Tolkien, and where it can be purchased. There is not, and has never been, any 'official' Lord of the Rings cataloguing. Clear and specific documentation has been almost impossible to find, and any listing that has been available has been a patchwork at best. Over the last few years, the Internet has become a great source of assistance through various webrings that connect the many Lord of the Rings fans. This four-colour, highly graphic book will provide information on all things Tolkien; books, calendars, toys and movie memorabilia. Both the novice and die-hard collector will find this guide helpful and like the new film trilogy from Peter Jackson, make us believe again.

A great movie companion coffee table book 6 Dec. 2001
By Nik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book isn't what I expected. It is much more than that. I saw it online and thought it would be a nice text book about my favorite subject, the Lord of the Rings. Instead when I got back from the store where I purchased it I was shocked to see such highly detailed information. This writer has done his homework and I don't think that he has missed anything. You should see the detail in this book. I have much Lord of the Rings merchandise but now it looks like I am really on the hunt (thanks - I can't tell you how THRILLED my wife is) ... This author's autobiograpy of JRR is terrific and he does as nice job discussing the new movie too. He is careful not to give too much away which is a nice touch. It's advertised as having 500+ pictures and that reviewer isn't kidding. It is FULL of high quality, high gloss pics. This book looks pretty expensive and I think although a softcover it is more like a coffee table book. That is where I am leaving mine, for everyone to see. Good Job Mr. Gillam ... I see he has written another book a year or two ago about Space Science-Fiction toys ... my brother is nuts for that 60's stuff so ... I am on the hunt for that one too. (Imagine how happy HIS wife is going to be)

All Things Tolkien Indeed!! 17 May 2002
By S-G-M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be an exstensive resource for Tolkien's writings, the many publishers and cover artists, the first editions and the latest available, and the writings you may never heard of. Seeing the covers of some of the early paperbacks was like finding long lost friends, the editions I grew up reading. I also found the sections on the merchandise spawned by the previous animation features and the new movie trilogy to be very detailed. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the visual history of Tolkien's works and the art inspired by them.

Treasures From The Misty Mountains 2 Dec. 2001
By Julie Johnston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have just bought this collectors book and I am very impressed with it. The pictures are vibrant, the information is detailed, and the research is evident. It gives the reader a great deal of information on the books, the toys, the history, and the upcoming film. I was glad to see that it didn't stop at his works but delved into the world of figurines as well. It is a must have for any Tolkien fan or collector.

Pretty Good Book!! 2 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Not to bad. The book mainly is a picture guide to Tolkiens published works and audio books. There are some pictures of toys past and present. Although I noticed that there were quite a few things they didn't add too the Tolkien line of merchandise. The picture quality is not that great but if your a tolkien or RINGS fan pick it up. It's a good coffee table book.
