A luxury edition of the world's most collectable book, printed on Bible paper, bound in cloth and leather, and set in a cloth-bound slipcase. Since it was first published in 1954, The Lord of the Rings has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike. Fifty million copies of its many editions have been sold around the world, and occasional collectors' editions become prized and valuable items of publishing. This deluxe edition contains the complete text of the revised Second Edition, first published in 1994. Bound in black leather and cloth and protected in its own cloth-bound slipcase, the book is printed on fine India paper, making it much slimmer than its standard hardback counterpart. The book includes Christopher Tolkien's two-colour maps of Middle-earth and Gondor as endpapers and is limited to a print run of just 1,000 copies. No serious Tolkien enthusiast will want to miss this opportunity to own the definitive text of the twentieth century's greatest book in this sumptuous deluxe edition.
