The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings: Deluxe Pocket Boxed Set by J.R.R. Tolkien (Paperback) by J.R.R. Tolkien
about this item
This four-volume, deluxe paperback boxed set contains J.R.R. Tolkien's epic masterworks 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).
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. J.R.R. Tolkien's three volume masterpiece 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.

Beautiful books, nice for collectors, but way to small to read. Should be labeled "pocket size". Only about 5in by 3in, very very small text.see moreof the reviewer's review

Very nice leather/fake leather covering on these books, very nice quality. First set I received had some cuts in the covering of the case, but the replacement set was fine. Only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars is that this set is very small, and not advertised as such, at least that I see. The ...see moreof the reviewer's review
