The Fellowship Of the Ring

by Tolkien, J R R

The Fellowship of the Ring is the first of three volumes of the epic novel The Lord of the Rings by the English author J. R. R. Tolkien. It takes place in the fictional universe Middle-earth. It was originally published on July 29, 1954 in the United Kingdom. The volume consists of a Prologue "Concerning Hobbits, and other matters" followed by Book I and Book II.Tolkien's publisher worried that the 'high-fantasy' novel wouldn't sell, and broke the text into three volumes to cut costs: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. Because the popularity had not been tested, initial print runs on the trilogy were low, making first states scarce and valuable.

First Edition Identification

The first edition, first printing of The Fellowship of the Ring was published in the UK by George Allen and Unwin. Only 3,000 copies were initially published. A fold out map in the read includes a red dot off the coast of Umbar as a first state point and 21s pricepoint on dustjacket.

On Jul 14, 2022, Anonymous said

The Lord of the Rings is in my opinion the best story in the fantasy genre. The amount of detail that Tolkien pours into his work brings fictional characters, histories, and cultures to life. I have never read another book in this genre with the same level of craftsmanship.

On Dec 4, 2014, a reader said
The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings are simply fantastic, I would recommend them to one and all. I have read them numerous times and much better than the movies which are good.
