For more than 60 years the published works of J.R.R. Tolkien have delighted readers of all ages. It was in 1937 that The Hobbit first captured our hearts and stirred our imaginations. In 1955 the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy, which has been called the most influential fantasy story of all time hit the worldwide stage and has sold more than 100 million copies and has been translated into over 40 languages. No other work of fiction comes close!

I have just bought this collectors book and I am very impressed with it. The pictures are vibrant, the information is detailed, and the research is evident. It gives the reader a great deal of information on the books, the toys, the history, and the upcoming film. I was glad to see that it didn't stop at his works but delved into the world of figurines as well. It is a must have for any Tolkien fan or collector.

I found this book to be an extensive resource for Tolkien's writings, the many publishers and cover artists, the first editions and the latest available, and the writings you may never heard of. Seeing the covers of some of the early paperbacks was like finding long lost friends, the editions I grew up reading. I also found the sections on the merchandise spawned by the previous animation features and the new movie trilogy to be very detailed. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the visual history of Tolkien's works and the art inspired by them.

This is a Fantastic book for all Tolkien Fans! If you are a collector this is a MUST! Very well written, excellent pictures and Easy to use! Includes ISBN# as well as dates of release. Content includes Tolkien's Books, calendars, figurines, toys, movies (including the New Release 2001), movie/story on cd/cassettes/records, stationary, postcards, games (board/video/card), medals, buttons/pins, & other odds and ends.
