" A book is a dream that you hold in your hand". This is a brand new collectible edition of Lord of the Rings 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition J. The Fellowship of the Ring, part one of J. Tolkien's epic masterpiece, first reached these shores on October 21, 1954, arriving, as C. Lewis proclaimed, like lightning from a clear sky.Fifty years and nearly one hundred million American readers later comes a beautiful new one-volume collector's edition befitting the stature of this crown jewel of our list. With a text fully corrected under the supervision of Christopher Tolkien to meet the author's exacting wishes, two large-format fold-out maps, a ribbon placemarker, gilded page edges, a color insert depicting Tolkien's own paintings of the Book of Mazarbul and exceptionally elegant and sturdy overall packaging housed within an attractive slipcase, this edition is the finest we've ever produced. I usually start working on the orders as soon as i receive the order, except weekends and Holidays. If you need to cancel your order you need to do it as soon as possible. BUT if you have received a msg from me that it is processing I cannot cancel the order because the label has been paid and the book is in transit. If there any questions or concerns please let us know.
