    DescriptionJ.R.R. Tolkien’s THE LORD OF THE RINGS, now firmly acknowledged as one of the most popular books of the twentieth century, has captivated generations of readers with its completely convincing fantasy. In The History of The Lord of the Rings, the author’s son and literary heir, Christopher Tolkien, examines the creation of that epic from its inception to its finished form. At the core of these books are many early drafts and unpublished passages by Tolkien, which add greatly to a thorough understanding of his masterpiece. Combining his father’s unique vision with his own privileged insight and editorial commentary, Christopher Tolkien’s THE HISTORY OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS is a set of four volumes ? including one unique to this collection ? that no fan of THE LORD OF THE RINGS can afford to overlook.

    Review quote
    "One marvels anew at the depth, breadth, and persistence of J.R.R. Tolkien's labor. 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 "An opportunity to view the origins of one of the twentieth century's most popular and substantive works of fiction." --Hartford Courant
