Blurb – Lower Cover
The End of the Third Age begins with Sam’s rescue of Frodo from the Tower of Cirith Ungol, and gives a very different account of the Scouring of the Shire. The book ends with versions of the hitherto unpublished Epilogue, in which, years after the departure of Bilbo and Frodo from the Grey Haven, Sam attempts to answer his children’s questions.

This special edition, in which Christopher Tolkien completes his fascinating study of The Lord of the Rings, contains the first section of Sauron Defeated, the ninth volume of The History of Middle-earth.

’One marvels anew at the depth, breadth and persistence of J.R.R. Tolkien’s labour. No one sympathetic to his aims, the invention of a secondary universe, will want to miss this chance to be present at the creation.’
