Publisher's Description

J.R.R. Tolkien’s THE LORD OF THE RINGS, now firmly acknowledged as one of the most popular books of the twentieth century, has captivated generations of readers with its completely convincing fantasy. In The History of The Lord of the Rings, the author’s son and literary heir, Christopher Tolkien, examines the creation of that epic from its inception to its finished form. At the core of these books are many early drafts and unpublished passages by Tolkien, which add greatly to a thorough understanding of his masterpiece.
Combining his father’s unique vision with his own privileged insight and editorial commentary, Christopher Tolkien’s THE HISTORY OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS is a set of four volumes — including one unique to this collection — that no fan of THE LORD OF THE RINGS can afford to overlook.

Author Bio

CHRISTOPHER TOLKIEN is the third son of J.R.R. Tolkien. Appointed by Tolkien to be his literary executor, he has devoted himself to the editing and publication of unpublished writings, notably The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and The History of Middle-earth.
J.R.R. TOLKIEN (1892-1973) is the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic and extraordinary works of fiction as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. His books have been translated into more than fifty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

Editorial Reviews

“One marvels anew at the depth, breadth, and persistence of J.R.R. Tolkien’s labor. No one sympathetic to his aims, the invention of a secondary universe, will want to miss this chance to be present at the creation.”

Publishers Weekly

"An opportunity to view the origins of one of the twentieth century's most popular and substantive works of fiction." --Hartford Courant
