    ITEM#: 3208873

    The Fellowship of the Ring, part one of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, first reached these shores on October 21, 1954, arriving, as C. S. Lewis proclaimed, like lightning from a clear sky.” Fifty years and nearly one hundred million American readers later comes a beautiful new one-volume collector’s edition befitting the stature of this crown jewel of our list. With a text fully corrected under the supervision of Christopher Tolkien to meet the author’s exacting wishes, two large-format fold-out maps, a ribbon placemarker, gilded page edges, a color insert depicting Tolkien's own paintings of the Book of Mazarbul and exceptionally elegant and sturdy overall packaging housed within an attractive slipcase, this edition is the finest we’ve ever produced.

    • Beautiful volume, but not leather.
      Verified Purchase

      Very beautiful volume. However, as mentioned by other reviewers, it is not a leatherbound. Nowhere on the book, on its case or on the label attached to the shrink wrap by the publisher does it advertise itself to be leather. The label states the following: "50th Anniversary Edition / The Lord of the Rings / J.R.R. Tolkien / Finest edition ever offered, complete in one volume / Fully corrected, all new text setting / Color insert showing leaves from the Book of Mazarbul / Deluxe binding with two-color foil stamping / Gilded edges, ribbon bookmark / Two foldout two-color maps". If I had to choose, I would opt for the hardcover edition with full-color illustrations by Alan Lee: it is somewhat larger and more unwieldy, and it doesn't have gilded edges or a slip case, but the illustrations are beautiful. In any case, even without leather, this is a beautiful volume.

    • A treasure to keep
      Verified Purchase

      I bought this book so that I would have one copy of Lord of the Rings that I would charice and keep it up for display for the rest of my days. It really is a treasure. Excellent paper quality and firm beautiful covers. Only one little thing in my personal opinion could have been different; the maps. It's a nice idea that they attached the maps to both ends of the book (Shire map at the beginning and the whole Middle Earth map in the end), but personally, I would have liked to take the maps from some sorta paper slipcases and open them up where ever I can. Now, you have to open them next to your book everytime. Kinda sucks when you are sitting on your bed, back on the wall and you have the book against your knees and the map is just tangling in the air. That was just my personal opinion. All in all, magnificient version of the book!

    • Lord Of The Rings leather bound 50th Anniversary
      Verified Purchase

      I have read this wonderful book over a number of times. From The wonderfuly gifted mind of JRR Tolkien. This is the copy I have wanted to have for a long time. The story brings you into the lives and world of "Middle Earth". You know each one of them very well and share in the good and the evil of there encounters. This copy is a joy to read. From the leather bound cover to its fine paper of top quality. Your children and grandchildren will read it. A book to be handed from generation to generation.

    • Gorgeous edition
      Verified Purchase

      I've been wanting this edition for a long time. It is just as beautiful as it looked online. It's faux leather with thin parchment paper. A quality product and cheaper on overstock than anywhere else.

    • An Excellent Version of Lord of the Rings
      Verified Purchase

      I just received this single volume of the Lord of the Rings today, and it is already my favorite version. It is definitely worth the money. My only gripe comes from the shipping. I ordered it on December 17, and it didn't arrive until January 18. It got lost in shipping and I had to wait until a certain date to make sure it didn't arrive. I most likely will NOT be ordering from overstock again.

      There's not much else to say except this is a well-bound edition of a timeless classic.
