A really excellent example of this limited edition collectible slipcased set. The Lord of the Rings Illustrated edition was originally issued in 1991 to commemorate the centenary of Tolkien's birth as a single volume, with 50 full color plates by Alan Lee throughout. This set of three books is that edition reset in three volumes. This set is a fantastic edition for any collector, these UK HarperCollins volumes are superbly printed and bound, anecdotally much better than the USA edition. In our opinion these Alan Lee illustrated centenary editions are the most attractive versions of the illustrated Tolkien novels.To browse the rest of our extensive Tolkien listings search using the keyword: Durdjrrt
