Hardcover in DJ. Like New. First Edition, First Printing. No marks or writing. No remainder mark. Not price clipped. Scan shows actual copy. ; J. R. R. Tolkien was far more than a fantasy book writer. His lifelong fascination with medieval texts and languages gave him a unique vision and endless inspiration for his tales. His broad interests made possible his creation of faery worlds and entire races of beings, as well as the languages, cultures, and characters that make his books as engaging today as they were fifty years ago. This clear and thoroughly researched biography of the creator of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings recalls the mystery of Tolkienís imaginary worlds. ; 144 pages
