Printing Details

Hardback, seventh impression of the second edition. Bound in the original red cloth, with red dyed top edge. 23 × 14.5cm, 416pp + map to rear.

The Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures as the quest continues. Aragorn, revealed as the hidden heir of the ancient Kings of the West, joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard, and took part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by orcs, escaped into Fangorn Forest and there encountered the Ents. Gandalf returned, miraculously, and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman. Meanwhile, Sam and Frodo progressed towards Mordor to destroy the Ring, accompanied by Smeagol—Gollum, still obsessed by his 'preciouss'. After a battle with the giant spider, Shelob, Sam left his master for dead; but Frodo is still alive—in the hands of the orcs. And all the time the armies of the Dark Lord are massing.


This copy is in very clean condition. There is a little bumping to the head of the spine, but the pages are clean, the binding is secure and map is in excellent condition.
