The Lord of the Rings, One Volume Edition by J. R. R. Tolkien
Paperback – William Morrow Co – 2022 – 1178 pages
Contains the definitive text of all three parts of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King.
One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in darkness bind them.
In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all other. But the One Ring was taken from him, and after many ages fell into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.
Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him in his fastness in Mordor, but still the Ruling Ring remained lost to him. When Biblo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequething to his young cousin Frodo the One Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.
The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandolf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.
