    Description
    Author BiographyJohn Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father's death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures. Alan Lee is the illustrator of the highly-successful centenary edition of 'The Lord of the Rings' and diamond edition of 'The Hobbit'. He studied graphic design and the depiction of Celtic and Norse myths and has illustrated a wide range of books, including 'Faeries', 'Merlin Dreams' and 'Castles', and was conceptual designer for Terry Jones' film 'Erik the Viking'. He was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal for his illustrated edition of 'Black Ships Before Troy'.
    PrizesRunner-up for The BBC Big Read Top 100 2003 and The BBC Big Read Top 21 2003. Shortlisted for BBC Big Read Top 100 2003.

    The inclusion of artwork by Alan Lee brings some of the story o life. As Alan's work was used in the films by Peter Jackson, there is a familiarity of the drawings.
    Having a first edition hardback version of this book means it is something to treasure rather than read.
    It also compliments my 1st edition of the Hobbit.

    The Story speaks for itself, never fails to keep you following at as fast a pace as you're able from the first page to the last stumbling on down the road from the door where it began... More specifically to this copy of the work is the additional artwork by Alan Lee, which can only be described as inspirational. The beauty and the sense of inclusion it conveys is astonishing. Careful you don't stare too long or you may lose yourself in Middle Earth!
