About The Author

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892, in Bloemfontein, South Africa. After serving in World War I, he embarked upon a distinguished academic career and was recognized as one of the finest philologists in the world. He was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. He is, however, beloved throughout the world as the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic works as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. He died on September 2, 1973, at the age of eighty-one.

Q: What does it mean when it says “Media Tie-In”?

submitted by Lord of the Rings books - 4 years ago
  • A: I think it means the covers of the books feature images from the movie.

I got this set and the hobbit book is a movie cover while the LOTR books are different artwork. This is a purely cosmetic issue I have but the books themselves are wonderful. The hobbit book has a plastic feeling cover while the LOTR books are matte. If you want to read these books I would very much recommend you get this set as the LOTR books are very beautiful and it’s a great price.

I was a little disappointed in this set. The book covers don't match. Only the Hobbit book has the media tie-in cover. The rest have a cheaper cover. If my daughter hadn't ripped the wrapping off it, I probably would have returned it.
