J.R.R. Tolkien is famous the world over for his unique literary creation, exemplified in The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. What is less well known, however, is that he also produced a vast amount of further material that greatly expands upon the mythology and numerous stories of Middle-earth, and which gives added life to the thousand-year war between the Elves and the evil spirit Morgoth, and his terrifying lieutenant, Sauron. It was to this enormous task of literary construction that his Tolkien's youngest son and literary heir, Christopher, applied himself to produce the monumental and endlessly fascinating series of twelve books, The History of Middle-earth. This special collector's edition brings together the second half of Sauron Defeated, comprising the time-travel story 'The Notion Club Papers' and 'The Drowning of Anadune', both linking the myth of Atlantis to Middle-earth, with the final three volumes of The History of Middle-earth - Morgoth's Ring, The War of the Jewels and The Peoples of Middle-earth. Set in a matching black slipcase, this deluxe edition hardback is limited to just 1,000 copies and has been printed on fine India paper in order to bring the 1,700 pages of material down to a manageable-sized book. Epic in scope and extent, and featuring dozens of rare maps and illustrations drawn by J.R.R. Tolkien, this final deluxe volume of the trilogy will present the reader with a unique opportunity to complement their copies of the deluxe editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with a once-in-a-lifetime limited collector's hardback.

About the Author:

J.R.R.Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into over 30 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide

Review:

'One marvels anew at the depth, breadth and persistence of J.R.R. Tolkien's labour. No one sympathetic to his aims - the invention of a secondary universe - will want to miss this chance to be present at the creation.' Publishers Weekly
