From the Inside Flap

THE GREATEST FANTASY EPIC OF OUR TIME
While the evil might of the Dark Lord Sauron swarmed out to conquer all Middle-earth, Frodo and Sam struggled deep into Mordor, seat of Sauron's power. To defeat the Dark Lord, the accursed Ring of Power had to be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom. But the way was impossibly hard, and Frodo was weakening. Weighed down by the compulsion of the Ring he began finally to despair.
The awesome conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings, beloved by millions of readers around the world. --This text refers to the library edition.

About the Author

J. R. R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and other tales of Middle-earth, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but even as he studied these classics he was creating a set of his own. His books have been translated into more than fifty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great edition for the price
By Paco on August 30, 2015
Review for [[ASIN:0007525540 The Lord of the Rings]].

I'll keep it brief, this is not a review of the actual story but of this specific edition. I have attached many pictures that I hope help you decide if this is an edition you want to buy.

Pros:
- The font is big and easy to read.
- 65 beautiful illustrations by Alan Lee that bring the story to life.

Cons:
- Slipcover is an opaque plastic, whit a modern look that I think doesn't complement the book.
- One or two blank pages before and/or after each illustration.

Overall I think this is a great edition and it's worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Außen Hobbits, innen Geschmack!
Reviewed in Germany on July 7, 2020
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them.
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

- Zwar besitze ich schon ein paar verschiedene englische Ausgaben, doch diese schicke Taschenbuchausgabe samt Schuber fehlte mir noch in meine Sammlung -

Der schwarze Schuber ist schlicht aber dennoch mit einem stimmungsvollen glänzenden Prägedrucken verziert (das gilt auch für dich Bücher) und präsentiert so die drei Romane THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (Gelber Ring), THE TWO TOWERS (Roter Ring) und THE RETURN OF THE KING (Grüner Ring), und macht schon neugierig sich die Bücher zu krallen, die ebenso stimmungsvoll umgesetzt worden sind.
Neben dem obligatorischen Roman gibt es natürlich auch Tolkiens berühmten Vorworte (den Contents), den Appendices (hier in Deutschland als "Der Herr der Ringe - Die Anhänge" erschienen) und den abschließenden Indexes. Und natürlich nicht zuvergessen auch die nützlichen Landkarten von Shire, Middle-Earth und Mordor/Gondor/Rohan.
Die Buchseiten haben eine angenehme Dicke und die Schrift auch Abends im Bett mittels einer Nachttischlampe gut lesbar.

1997 war das Jahr, in dem ich durch DER HOBBIT und DER HERR DER RINGE das erste Mal meinen Rucksack schnürte um das sagenhafte Mittelerde zu erkunden.
Später von Heimweh geplagt wie der gute alte Bilbo Beutlin, erfährt mich doch auch heute noch öfters das Fernweh und somit die Rückkehr nach Mittelerde - anscheinend habe ich wohl auch eine verwandte Tuk-Seite in mir?!
