5.0 out of 5 stars Außen Hobbits, innen Geschmack!
Reviewed in Germany on July 7, 2020
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them.
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

- Zwar besitze ich schon ein paar verschiedene englische Ausgaben, doch diese schicke Taschenbuchausgabe samt Schuber fehlte mir noch in meine Sammlung -

Der schwarze Schuber ist schlicht aber dennoch mit einem stimmungsvollen glänzenden Prägedrucken verziert (das gilt auch für dich Bücher) und präsentiert so die drei Romane THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING (Gelber Ring), THE TWO TOWERS (Roter Ring) und THE RETURN OF THE KING (Grüner Ring), und macht schon neugierig sich die Bücher zu krallen, die ebenso stimmungsvoll umgesetzt worden sind.
Neben dem obligatorischen Roman gibt es natürlich auch Tolkiens berühmten Vorworte (den Contents), den Appendices (hier in Deutschland als "Der Herr der Ringe - Die Anhänge" erschienen) und den abschließenden Indexes. Und natürlich nicht zuvergessen auch die nützlichen Landkarten von Shire, Middle-Earth und Mordor/Gondor/Rohan.
Die Buchseiten haben eine angenehme Dicke und die Schrift auch Abends im Bett mittels einer Nachttischlampe gut lesbar.

1997 war das Jahr, in dem ich durch DER HOBBIT und DER HERR DER RINGE das erste Mal meinen Rucksack schnürte um das sagenhafte Mittelerde zu erkunden.
Später von Heimweh geplagt wie der gute alte Bilbo Beutlin, erfährt mich doch auch heute noch öfters das Fernweh und somit die Rückkehr nach Mittelerde - anscheinend habe ich wohl auch eine verwandte Tuk-Seite in mir?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing product! Great edition for collectors
Reviewed in India on October 25, 2018
I bought the 60th Anniversary edition (hardcover). I paid Rs. 2,999 and after receiving the book, I must say it's worth the price, although the delivery by Amazon was abysmal (delivery was delayed by 3-4 days).

Inside the packaging by Amazon, there's a cardboard box by Harper Collins that stores the book. The book is also protected by the slipcase, which is of good-quality plastic. The binding is very sturdy. The cover and back designs are beautiful, and the spine is a beauty to look at.

There are 50 illustrations by Alan Lee printed on high quality paper. In fact, the pages of the book feel very superior and letter size is perfect to read.

To anyone interested in buying this edition, go for it! You won't regret it one bit.
