Product Description

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.


The Lord of the Rings' classic tale has provided England with a mythology that seems as real as that of older lore. Following the quest of Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring to return the One Ring to Mordor, destroying Sauron and his armies in the hope of restoring peace to the lands of Middle Earth, this epic fantasy provides all the elements of a great tale and fantastic legend.

This 50th anniversary text is based on the setting of the HarperCollins three-volume hardcover edition of 2002, which was a revision of the HarperCollins reset edition of 1994.

Conveniently packaged in one volume, this 50th anniversary edition of JRR Tolkien's classic The Lord of the Rings maintains the breaks between the 3-volume set, as well as Tolkien's division of the text into six "books." Appendices and indexes are also included. 1178 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

Publisher's Description

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.

From Sauron's fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.

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.

The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.

This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index.

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, 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 while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.
