Children of Hurin
[618894640]
$24.79

 The Children of Hurin .

By J.R.R. Tolkien.

Edited by Christopher Tolkien.

Color illustrations by Alan Lee.

This first edition of The Children of Hurin is illustrated by Alan Lee, who was already well-known for his Tolkien illustrations in previous Tolkien editions.

The first complete book by J.R.R. Tolkien in three decades -- since the publication of The Silmarillion in 1977 -- The Children of Hurin reunites fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Elves and Men, dragons and Dwarves, Eagles and Orcs. Presented for the first time as a complete, standalone story, this stirring narrative will appeal to casual fans and expert readers alike, returning them to the rich landscape and characters unique to Tolkien.

The Children of Hurin, begun in 1918, was one of three Great Tales J.R.R. Tolkien worked on throughout his life, though he never realized his ambition to see it published. Though familiar to many fans from extracts and references within other Tolkien books, it has long been assumed that the story would forever remain an unfinished tale. Now reconstructed by Christopher Tolkien, painstakingly editing together the complete work from his fathers many drafts, this book is the culmination of a tireless thirty-year endeavor by him to bring J.R.R.Tolkiens vast body of unpublished work to a wide audience.

Having drawn the distinctive maps for the original The Lord of the Rings more than 50 years ago, Christopher has also created a detailed new map for this book. In addition, it will include a jacket and color paintings by Alan Lee, illustrator of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Centenary Edition and Academy Award-winning designer of the film trilogy. 

2007 Hardcover, New. List Price $26.00.
