All three parts of the epic masterpiece The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers & The Return of the King – available as one download, featuring the definitive edition of the text, hyperlinked footnotes and page references, and 3 maps including a detailed map of Middle-earth.
Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power – the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring – the ring that rules them all – which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.
In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Crack of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.
Since it was first published in 1954, ‘The Lord of the Rings’ has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike.
First ever illustrated eBook of the classic bestseller featuring more than 60 colour paintings and pencil drawings by the award-winning artist, Alan Lee, Conceptual Designer on Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY.
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey ‘there and back again’. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon…
The prelude to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most beloved and influential books of the twentieth century.
This new eBook edition is illustrated throughout in gorgeous watercolour and delicate pencil by Alan Lee, the Oscar-winning Conceptual Designer on Peter Jackson’s films, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY and THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN.
O livro começa com "O Ainulindalë", o mito da criação do Universo, seguido pelo "Valaquenta", onde estão descritas a natureza e os poderes de cada um dos deuses. O "Akallâbeth" narra o apogeu e a queda do reino da grande ilha de Númenor no final da Segunda Era e "Dos Anéis de Poder" fala dos grandes eventos no final da Terceira Era, como narrado em "O Senhor dos Anéis".
The popular paperback edition of this fascinating collection of stories, which continue the tales of The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion and contains an alternative version of The Children of Hurin.
Unfinished Tales is a collection of narratives ranging in time from the Elder Days of Middle-earth to the end of the War of the Ring, and provides those who have read The Lord of the Rings with a whole collection of background and new stories from the twentieth century’s most acclaimed popular author.
The book concentrates on the realm of Middle-earth and comprises such elements as Gandalf’s lively account of how it was that he came to send the Dwarves to the celebrated party at Bag-End, the emergence of the sea-god Ulmo before the eyes of Tuor on the coast of Beleriand, and an exact description of the military organization of the Riders of Rohan.
Unfinished Tales also contains the only story about the long ages of Numenor before its downfall, and all that is known about such matters as the Five Wizards, the Palantiri and the legend of Amroth. The tales were collated and edited by JRR Tolkien’s son and literary heir, Christopher Tolkien, who provides a short commentary on each story, helping the reader to fill in the gaps and put each story into the context of the rest of his father’s writings.
A história da Queda de Gondolin começou a ser escrita em 1916 e agora ganha vida graças ao trabalho editorial de Christopher Tolkien, filho e executor legal das obras de Tolkien. Dessa forma cumprem-se duas sinas: a dos Elfos noldorin na Primeira Era do mundo e a do autor, ao conseguir publicar individualmente os três Grandes Contos dos Dias Antigos
Fechando a mitologia da Terra-média, A Queda de Gondolin, assim como Beren e Lúthien e Os Filhos de Húrin, foi ricamente ilustrada pelo renomado artista britânico Alan Lee, que retrata a fantasia de Tolkien há mais de 30 anos.
Essencial à história, e jamais modificado, é o destino que se impõe sobre o amor dos protagonistas: Beren é um homem mortal, enquanto Lúthien é uma elfa imortal. O pai dela, um grande senhor élfico, opõe-se ao relacionamento e, para permitir o casamento com Lúthien, impõe a Beren uma tarefa impossível de ser realizada. É esse o foco central da lenda: a tentativa incrivelmente heroica de Beren e Lúthien de, juntos, roubar uma Silmaril do maior de todos os seres malignos, Melkor, chamado Morgoth, o Sombrio Inimigo do Mundo.
Neste livro, Christopher Tolkien tenta extrair a história de Beren e Lúthien da obra mais abrangente em que está inserida. Contudo, a própria lenda foi se modificando conforme novas associações foram sendo criadas dentro da narrativa maior. A fim de mostrar um pouco do processo pelo qual essa lenda da Terra-média evoluiu ao longo dos anos, ele conta a história nas próprias palavras de seu pai ao fornecer, primeiro, a forma original do texto e, em seguida, passagens em prosa e em verso de textos tardios que ilustram a narrativa à medida que ela muda. Apresentados de forma reunida pela primeira vez, esses textos revelam aspectos da história, tanto em eventos quanto em suas imediações narrativas, que posteriormente se perderam.
Publicado no décimo aniversário do livro mais recente sobre a Terra-média, o best-seller internacional Os Filhos de Húrin, este novo volume também inclui desenhos e pinturas de Alan Lee, que também ilustrou O Senhor dos Anéis e O Hobbit, e que ganhou um Oscar por seu trabalho na trilogia cinematográfica de O Senhor dos Anéis.
The forerunner to The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion fills in the background which lies behind the more popular work, and gives the earlier history of Middle-earth, introducing some of the key characters.
The Silmarillion is an account of the Elder Days, of the First Age of Tolkien’s world. It is the ancient drama to which the characters in The Lord of the Rings look back, and in whose events some of them such as Elrond and Galadriel took part. The tales of The Silmarillion are set in an age when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor.
Included in the book are several shorter works. The Ainulindale is a myth of the Creation and in the Valaquenta the nature and powers of each of the gods is described. The Akallabeth recounts the downfall of the great island kingdom of Númenor at the end of the Second Age and Of the Rings of Power tells of the great events at the end of the Third Age, as narrated in The Lord of the Rings.
This new ebook version of Tolkien's timeless classic presents readers with a plethora of full colour images of the original letters alongside the transcribed text, offering a truly engrossing reading experience.
Every December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for J.R.R.Tolkien’s children. Inside would be a letter in strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful coloured drawing or some sketches. The letters were from Father Christmas.
They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how all the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone Polar Bear climbed the North Pole and fell through the roof of Father Christmas’s house into the dining-room; how he broke the Moon into four pieces and made the Man in it fall into the back garden; how there were wars with the troublesome horde of goblins who lived in the caves beneath the house!
Sometimes the Polar Bear would scrawl a note, and sometimes Ilbereth the Elf would write in his elegant flowing script, adding yet more life and humour to the stories. No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by the inventiveness and ‘authenticity’ of Tolkien’s Letters from Father Christmas.
This ebook version of the letters brings Tolkien's creation alive, providing readers with a truly engaging experience.
The second part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic adventure
THE LORD OF THE RINGS
‘Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century.’
The company of the Ring is torn asunder. Frodo and Sam continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin – alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.
This continues the classic tale begun in The Fellowship of the Ring, which reaches its awesome climax in The Return of the King.
