Overview

Immerse yourself in Middle-earth with J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic masterpieces behind the films...

This gorgeous four-volume, deluxe pocket boxed set contains Tolkien's epic works The Hobbit and the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King). The set comes shrinkwrapped and all four books are held in a leatherette bound box with gold foil stamping; each book features a leatherette cover with stamped title. 

In The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins is whisked away from his comfortable, unambitious life in Hobbiton by the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves. He finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon.

The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo Baggins and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the dwarf; Legolas the elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.

Tolkien's epic tales, all in a four-volume, deluxe pocket boxed set, is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale—a story of high and heroic adventure set in the unforgettable landscape of Middle-earth.
