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, The Silmarillion and The Children of Hurin, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into over 50 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

From Our Editors

The vision of J.R.R. Tolkien is so complete, a whole world, including diverse settings, characters and mythology, has sprung from his Lord of the Rings series. Part one, The Fellowship of the Ring, sets up this timeless collection. This new edition includes an illustration by well-known fantasy illustrator Geoff Taylor.
