Volume 5 in an out-of-print 7-volume Houghton Mifflin Millennium Edition boxed set published in 1999. As new with glossy black cover and eye of Sauron that appeared on the front of all seven volumes. Tolkien originally conceived of the Lord of the Rings being published as 6 separate books rather than the trilogy that most people are familiar with. His six titles fall thusly: Book 1: The Ring Sets Out; Book 2: The Ring Goes South (The Fellowship of the Ring); Book 3: The Treason of Isengard; Book 4: The Ring Goes East (The Two Towers); and Book 5: The War of the Ring; Book 6: The End of the Third Age (The Return of the King). Thus, this book is also the first half of the third book in the Rings trilogy as it is most often seen. In the original Houghton Mifflin 7-volume set, the seventh volume was an Appendix and included maps and additional information. These are small books, a little larger than a mass market paperback, and were issued without dust jackets. They are getting more difficult to find. ISBN #0618042245. Printed in Great Britain. 197 pp.
