This book is incredible. The craftsmanship and detail is extraordinary and absolutely beautiful. I love the fact that Bilbo, Frodo, and Sam all have their own writing styles. I could go on and on about how the amazing drawings and maps. If you are a die hard LOTR fan, this book is a must have...

Part 2 It should be clear that this is Bilbo's account of his adventure and Frodo's account of his (with added brief material relating to Sam, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli). Thus it does not cover the adventures of Merry and Pippin in Fangorn, Rohan, and Gondor. Also it is faithful to the book narrative, not the PJ films: Crickhollow, Old Man Willow, the Barrow Wight, Tom Bombadil and Glorfindel and the Scouring of the Shire are all here. The influence of the films is seen in the artwork. It would be interesting to devise the accounts by Merry and Pippin and Aragorn in their own styles...

This is a wonderfully remarkable artifact. The high quality paper, the layout, the fonts, the illustrated items, the leather cover are all exquisite. It is interesting to experience the tale from what one would academically call the ur-text from which the 2oth century editor J. Tolkien filled out in his version of the narratives. The various writers (BIlbo, Frodo, Sam, etc.) are distinguished by their orthographic styles and even alphabets used! One has a glimpse into true hobbitry. And a sense of truly holding an ancient original. I will have to buy white gloves to handle it! ;-) It will be fascinating to read through and explore. It arrived within a mere 3-4 days all the way from NZ to NYC. in excellent condition. I was a bit surprized however to see that it was not boxed as I would expect for something of such quality and expense. So I purchased a shadow box to store it in. Perhaps you might share some details about how it was developed and produced? One improvement might be to slightly feather the edges of the pages as used to be common in older books. The edges look a bit too machined otherwise. I may experiment with attempting to achieve that. I have a rather large collection of film and book oriented Tolkieniana, and this now occupies the place of supreme value! It exceeds every expectation. Yess, it is my presshuss!..

I just received this today as a Christmas gift from my father. As a fan of the movies and the books this was truly incredible. The amount of detail contained within the book itself was amazing. I was (and still am) speechless regarding it. Everything in the book is incredibly well done, and I was awed by the seemingly minuscule details that were included...
