great for collecting, not as easy to read because they are heavy but they will last....
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King/Two Towers/Fellowship of the Ring (Hardcover)
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 still it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell, by chance, into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.
From his fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, Sauron's power spread far and wide. He gathered all the Great Rings to him, but ever he searched far and wide for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.
On his eleventy-first birthday, Bilbo dissapeared 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.

I looked for a nice Lord of the Rings boxed set for my husband for quite a while before I came accross this set. The price was good so I bought it for him. It looked very nice in the pictures but I was a little hesitant that the quality would not be that good. I sure was surprised! The quality is excellent! The pages of the book are very smooth and kind of shiny like you would find in an encyclopedia. The books are a little taller than I expected and very substantial. If you are just looking for a set for reading quickly, this is not the set for you. This is a set to read, cherish and display!Read More
Classis story, worth owning on hardback! Nook and Kindle is one thing, but I will always have this book! We had a slight complication with shipping. We received the books the first time and it looked as though the carrier had just thrown the box around and damaged the product! We contact O and they sent another set, no questions asked, given that we returned the damaged! Everything worked out great!Read More
