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 andThe Lord of the Rings. He died on September 2, 1973, at the age of eighty-one. <div id="
For some people it doesn’t matter, but for me, when I bought a serie of 4 books, the covers have to be the same, but here, I have two different cover, ugly, and two others who respect the esthetic of the movies. It’s supposed to be a gift, I’m very upset.
This lord of the rings book set is beautiful! The books are small, and the covers of the books are firm but bendy, which will be great for taking on the go, and they have a soft, smooth, leathery feel to them. The box they come in is the same soft, leather type feeling and very sturdy. The pages are VERY thin, it’s almost like the pages of a christian bible but the pages are soft with a paper like feel and not shiny like they are in a bible. The text is VERY VERY small but you can definitely still read them pretty easily maybe not for too long tho, my eyes did get tired after the first chapter from straining to read the small text which is just wrong on so many levels cause I WANT TO KEEP READING LOL!!! This is the first time I’m reading the LOTR series and I’m so already captured by the flow of the story and the detail that went into creating this wonderful world! Thank you J. R. R. Tolkien!!! From someone who is new to this series this is the complete book set. The first is The Hobbit then the next three books is actually considered only one book: The Lord Of The Rings, and this is supposed to be the sequel to The Hobbit from what I have gathered. LOTR was broken up into three books due an apparent paper shortage in the 50’s when the books came out, each book of the last three here actually contains 2 books inside: The Fellowship of the Ring with book 1-the ring sets out and book 2-the ring goes south, The Two Towers with book 3-the treason of isengard and book 4-the ring goes east and last The Return of the King with book 5-the war of the ring and book 6-the end of the third age. On that note this is definitely a deluxe feeling set and worth the almost $30 dollars I paid! GREAT price for what you get!
I am beyond disappointed. The font is too small to read, but I thought the artwork would make up for this since I already own editions with larger font. So many beautiful pieces of art were uploaded! Where can I find this edition? I just wasted $27. None of this artwork is found in the paperback edition. Is it found in the $90 hardback edition? I’m debating if I should just send this back since I can’t even read it 😭 These books are tiny!
I just received my Hobbit/LOTR Deluxe Pocket Boxed Set, and it is one of the finest, most handsome editions of any kind I have ever owned.The ‘Leatherette’ description for the covers of the books and the cut-away display box made it sound like a faux leather material, but the rich leather fragrance reveals its fine quality the instant one punctures the shrink wrap, and the tactile experience of holding and opening the books harkens back to bygone days.The embossed titles are superb, exceeded only by the gold leaf titling on the box, with the distinctive JRRT design embossed on the sides as well.The durable Smyth-sewn binding guarantees these books to open easily and be a pleasure to read, and the paper is a decent weight, more stout that that of similar size leather bound pocket Bibles, with a similar-size font.These volumes are meant to be treasured and appreciated, read again and again, and handed down from generation to generation (if the Lord doesn’t return first!). So glad I ordered this, and it is inspiring me to revisit Middle Earth through Tolkien’s own telling for the first time in many years!
Beautiful set. I am an avid reader and this collection looks wonderful on my shelf. The print is tiny but isn’t a problem for me since I still find it readable. I compared the print to a miniature psalm/proverbs book so that others looking to buy this set can get a visual representation of the print size. The binding is thick and the overall feel of the book and pages feel nice and sturdy. I am happy with this purchase.
The lettering on these is so small that my 11yr old was having trouble reading it. The space between sentences is very small. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you like to use a magnifyer for reading.
I have always loved medieval sort of books and movies. But I had never seen or read any of the LOTR. Over this summer i planned on reading all of them and i have just finished them. What i can say is that these are amazing.You always hear about how much of a world J.R.R Tolkien creates but you never understand this until you read the book.The story and the characters let you fall into the midsts of the book with every turn of the page you wonder what will happen next.Also for people who haven’t read or watched the movies it is amazing to watch the movies after you read the book.Best quote”One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.”I only hope I can find another book to live up to the quality these did.
My wife and I decided we wanted a good set of the Lord of the Rings stories. We were poking around and really felt like their were only two options: some unexciting paperback editions or expensive collectors editions. Neither was terribly appealing, which is why we were so excited to find this set.The books are bound in a faux-leather material that’s very pleasant to look at and to hold. They are each ‘engraved’ with the title, the Tolkein symbol, as well as his name. On the spine, you’ll see something similar. The set comes with a display holder which holds all four books.Our original order actually came with a tear on one of the pages. Amazon replaced it quickly and easily. Kudos to them!Beyond that we have thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the books. Be warned, these are small! The books are smaller than my hand (6’2″ male), and the print could potentially be challenging for those who may not have excellent sight. That would definitely be worth consideration before sinking money into this set.I’m extremely happy with our choice of this set. The stories are, of course, incomparable. The quality of the books themselves are superb and visually appealing. I’m very happy to give this one 5 stars.
Let me tell you first , the series is a flawless masterpiece indeed . It cannot be described much , so just read it! Now on to the bad role played by amazon , the packaging was , damn careless .. Yup you read it right and i typed it right .. Careless.. The box was torn and bent and the cover of the books were spoilt ( i am very particular about my books , like even a small fold / bend in the book , you will wish you never met me ..) but the pages were ATLEAST safe ! The paper quality isn’t soo good neither soo bad ; you know it is just , OK. Not a really worthy buy , but the content makes up , so i would give three stars . The box ‘s width could have been increased atleast a couple of milimeters so that we can place the books back.. And the other annoying thing is that only in this bookset tolkien’s original cover design is well .. the cover design ..But packaging usually depends on your luck … So I hope you get a nice set , not a torn one like mine! PS- hope this review helped you ! Check out the photos !Have a good day ! ~ yours truly , dragonwizard (amazon + flipkart reviewer )
The box-set came on time and in a perfect condition!I’ve been eyeing this particular edition for some months now. .. finally when price reduced to 1921, I bought.*The books are so well bound and leatherette! It’s extremely beautiful.*Though keep in mind they are pretty small, almost the size of my palm(I’ve attached a photo for better understanding) and the print is also small but readable (photo attached).*All the Tolkien fans ,you need have this atleast as part of your collectables !! It’s extremely beautiful! Can’t stop raving about it !😍😍♥️♥️
Edição muito linda, capa emborrachada, folhas amareladas e lisinhas com ilustrações variando de coloridas a preto e branco. Edição de colecionador, porém é versão pocket e as letras ficaram miudinhas o que particularmente me incomodou bastante por não ser muito confortável. O inglês varia de livro, o Hobbit é intermediário, quem leu Harry Potter consegue ler o Hobbit tranquilamente, enquanto que o tom da linguagem e o grau de dificuldade aumenta no senhor dos anéis. Tem que ter paciência pois o inglês remonta leituras de época, logo, nível avançado. Indico para aqueles que gostam de coleções bonitas, com ótimo acabamento e querem avançar gradualmente no inglês, mas quem tem problema com tamanho da letra deve repensar a possibilidade! Fora isso, só esperava que as figuras fossem melhor impressas, no quesito cor deixou a desejar.Quanto às entrega, chegou após 3 dias!!! Muito rápido, sem danos ao produto e bem embalado.
Bought this version as I don’t like it when paperback books crease and wear out over time and hardback books cost a bit more. They are somewhat small which I like and they look great due to their colours. The text on the Hobbit is big enough but the other 3 have a smaller text size (still readable for me). Mine came with no damage on any areas of the holder or books. Overall, it was a good purchase.
This leatherette bound Deluxe Pocket Set has stylish classical looks and feels great in the hand. The outer box on my copy has the marks from the shrink wrap that many others have reported. The Tolkien embossing on my copy is also not straight.The Hobbit text is based on the 1995 Harper Collins edition.The Lord of the Rings text is however not the 50th anniversary edition. It does not include the introductory text from that edition and it still has some of the mistakes which have since been corrected. For example, Gandalf’s inconsistent knowledge of the palantír has been corrected. However, certain dates such as the addition of Westmarch to the Shire and the Mirror of Galadriel reference have not been corrected.The use of the uncorrected text and the quality issues, unfortunately distract slightly from what is otherwise a really nice set.EDIT: The wonky Tolkien embossing kept catching my eye and so I got it replaced by Amazon. I’m happy to report that the replacement is straight.
