The Lord of the Rings
Known by many titles – There and Back Again, The Lord of the Rings, the Red Book of Westmarch, or simply as the Book, this mighty tome contains the full tale of Frodo, Samwise Gamgee, Merry and Pippin, Gandalf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir (known together as the Fellowship of the Ring) and their quest to destroy the One Ring of Power and the evil Lord of Mordor Sauron. Fans of the Lord of the Rings series can now take their enjoyment to the next level with a beautifully handcrafted version of all three volumes in one single book.
Perfect for collectors, this is a handmade rebinding of the 50th anniversary edition of the full Lord of the Rings, bound in bonded leather and crafted to look like the Red Book of Westmarch, commonly known as the book that Bilbo is commonly seen scribbling in. A silver star and the silver BB (short for Bilbo Baggins) are emblazoned on the surface, and the book has tangible grooving for running one’s fingers across. This edition contains the full stories of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King by JRR Tolkien, and published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Measuring 8.2 x 5.8 inches, weighing 4.5 pounds, and comprised of 1,178 pages, this hefty tome also features the maps of Middle Earth.
Long preceding in its origins The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion is the story of the First Age of Tolkien’s world, the ancient drama to which characters in The Lord of the RIngs look back and in which some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part.
The title Silmarillion is shortened from Quenta Silmarillion, “The History of the Silmarils,” the three great jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves, in which he imprisoned the light of the Two Trees that illumined Valinor, the land of the gods. When Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, destroyed the Trees, that light lived on only in the Silmarils; Morgoth seized them and set them in his crown, guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. The Silmarillion is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his people against the gods, their exile in Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all the heroisim of Elves and Men, against the great Enemy.
The book includes several other, shorter works beside The Silmarillion proper. Preceding it are “Ainulindale,” the myth of Creation, and “Valaquenta,” in which the nature and powers of each of the gods is set forth. After The Silmarillion is “Akallabeth,” the story of the downfall of the great island kingdom of Numenor at the end of the Second Age; completing the volume is “Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age,” in which the events of The Lord of the Rings are treated in the manner of The Silmarillion.
An amazing item, perfect for collectors, this is a made-to-order, hand bound rebinding of the full Silmarillion, bound in leather and crafted in the spirit of the workings of mighty Feanor himself. Measuring 9.1 x 6.6 x 1.1 inches, weighing 3.75 pounds, and comprised of 416 pages, this book uses the illustrated Harper Collins 2004 edition. Bound in iridescent leather, with gold and silver patterning and filigree, the book has the Iron Crown of Morgoth, and the three gems of legend, the Silmarillion, bound on the cover. Each Silmaril holds the light of the Two Trees Telperion and Laurelin that illuminated Valinor before being poisoned and drained by Ungoliant.
