  • Hi, I just got my 60th anniversary edition. Is the spine of this book supposed to be just thin vellum with cloth cover or did I get a faulty product? The spine doesn't offer any support to the book and bends inwards with the page block. I reckon this will eventually cause grooves or even tears to this the spine, making it also look very bad on the shelf. Here's a picture of what I'm talking about: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_NgylLxYX-ncUFMelVhbnh0Uzg

  • Make sure to also check out this video about the LOTR 60th Year Anniversary Edition. I talk about the issues with the book's spine. https://youtu.be/KoJhsrJAe_o

  • A nice looking edition. I have ordered the 60th anniversary edition that is divided into three books and comes with the Reader's Guide(or companion, I can't remember the name XD).

  • hi pontus, does this book has illustrations by alan lee?Which editions have the illustrations by alan lee? I have watched the movies and want to read the books in a Alan Lee style perspective… Does the 50th edition have illustrations by Alan lee?

    I hope you can help me!

  • great video! I have been so confused and I don't know which edition to buy which has all the maps, illustrations appendices and other stuff. I preferLotr in one volume as opposed to three different books, including the hobbit. which edition would you recommend? thanks.

  • Can you help me please ? I want to know What is the Different between this Edition published by Harper Collins and the same Edition published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

  • May you please post a link of where to purchase this? It's quite costly and all the international sites don't ship to the US 🙁

  • Questions: What's the difference between this current one compared to the 1991 version? They seem exactly the same.

  • I have this now and love it. The pictures are awesome, nice 12 point font, very high quality. Only thing is the paper is shiny and hard to read if under a lamp. I’m not a fan of the see through plastic sleeve so I don’t use it. I wouldn’t recommend this copy for an initial read but definitely if you’ve already read it and just like to go back and read parts.

  • Whats the difference between this and the 50th-anniversary edition? I've heard the paper quality isn't as good as it is in the 50th edition though it may not include the illustrations, would I be better off getting this one or the 50th anniversary edition?

  • If anyone here can't afford this version (like me ) I recommend the 1991 edition (which is also illustrated by Alan Lee).

  • Hi, fellow, thanks for your videos! What's the weight of this beauty? I want to order and delivery cost depends on its weight.

  • Thanks for the video! This convinced me to take the plunge and buy the book. And it's so gorgeous.
