As a huge Tolkien fan I was eager to acquire all the history of Middle-earth books and this three-volume set is perfect. The books are beautiful, although the pages are very thin so be careful not to rip them! If you're new to Tolkien it's best to start at The Hobbit, then Lord of the Rings, then The Silmarillion and finally onto these! It's not a light read by any means, but I'm in awe at the world Tolkien has created and the sheer number of names involved. also, I have yet to read any other fantasy which comes close to the grandness of the Fall of Gondolin! It's the perfect fantasy and still overshadows any of today's fantasy novels - which are darker, full of crude words, sex and just not as good!

Trying to find all twelve original volumes of "The History of Middle-Earth" is a though enterprise. If you are really interested in how a man could accomplished so much in his lifetime, you may want to treat yourself with this collection of three volumes that collects the complete 12-part monument. Part 1 was published in 2000 (reprinted in 2002) and contains Volume I: "The Book of Lost Tales, Part One" (1983), Volume II: "The Book of Lost Tales, Part Two" (1984), Volume III: "The Lays of Beleriand" (1985), Volume IV: "The Shaping of Middle Earth" (1986) and Volume V: "The Lost Road and Other Writings" (1987).

Theese books should be made into a film like the hobbit and the lotr. they explain in great detail the stages in which how middle earth was formed. and explain the different races and cultures in middle earth.

Great addition to my collection, I hope to soon find the time to "dig" through it. Still I don't find a reason for the high price the books from that series, all 3 of them.
