Overview

Immerse yourself in Middle-earth with J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic masterpieces behind the films, in this gorgeous pocket-sized, leatherette-bound box set—the perfect gift for Lord of the Rings devotees.

This four-volume, pocket-sized boxe set contains Tolkien's epic works The Hobbit and the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings (The Fellowship of the RingThe Two Towers, and The Return of the King). The set comes shrink-wrapped with all four books in a leatherette-bound box with gold foil stamping; each book features a leatherette cover with stamped title and their compact size (4 1/4" x 5 7/8") makes them perfect to carry anywhere. 

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 are 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.
