Continuing the story of The Hobbit, this three-volume boxed set of Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, features striking black covers based on Tolkien's own design, the definitive text, and three maps including a detailed map of Middle-earth. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring - the ring that rules them all - which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. 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.

Autorenporträt
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien wurde am 3. Januar 1892 in Bloemfontein (Südafrika) geboren und wuchs in England auf. Von 1925 an war er Professor für englische Philologie in Oxford und erwarb sich schon bald großes Ansehen als einer der angesehensten Philologen weit über die Grenzen Englands hinaus. Seine besondere Vorliebe galt den alten nordischen Sprachen. Seine weltbekannten Bücher »Der Hobbit«, »Der Herr der Ringe«, »Das Silmarillion« haben die Fantasyliteratur entscheidend geprägt und wurden in über 40 Sprachen überSetzt. Millionen von Lesern werden seither von den Ereignissen in Mittelerde in Atem gehalten. J. R. R. Tolkien starb 1973 in Bournemouth.
