J.R.R. Tolkien's epuc grew in the telling such that its publishers had to split it into three volumes, each containing two books, for the sake of both convenience and economy. But Tolkien's original intention was for each book to have a separate title: The Ring Sets Out, The RIng Goes South, The Treason at Isengard, The Ring Goes East, The War of the Ring, The End of the Third Age, plus the appendices.

A limited, commemorative 7-volume edition, one for each of its six parts plus a seventh volume containing maps and the appendices. Black jackets stamped with red and gold foil feature the original design. Each book bears Tolkien's original title.
