About this deal

The reproductions in all earlier editions have been sourced from transparencies of the paintings, but now Alan has scanned them all, we have been able to reproduce the original colours and wring every last detail out of the pictures.

This year of course, and 2015, mark the 60th anniversary of the first publication of The Lord of the Rings, it can not be a surprise that we will see the release of a 60th anniversary edition on the 19th of June.He further adds "In addition, the text has been updated to include all the corrections from the 50th Anniversary edition, so it’s the first time the final text and final pictures will have appeared in the same volume.

That many (if not most) fantasy works are in some way derivative of Tolkien is understood, but the influence of The Lord of the Rings is so universal that everybody from George Lucas to Led Zeppelin has appropriated it for one purpose or another. Tolkien's classic masterpiece includes the complete revised and reset text, two-fold out maps printed in red and black and, unique to this edition, a full-colour fold-out reproduction of Tolkien's own facsimile pages from the Book of Mazarbul that the Fellowship discover in Moria. Neuware - This deluxe slipcased volume contains the definitive version of the text, featuring for the very first time full-colour facsimiles of pages from the Book of Mazarbul, illustrations by Tolkien that he intended for inclusion in the 'Bridge of Khazad-dum' chapter.By accepting all cookies, you agree to our use of cookies to deliver and maintain our services and site, improve the quality of Reddit, personalize Reddit content and advertising, and measure the effectiveness of advertising. When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom. His books have been translated into over sixty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him.
