First ever illustrated eBook of the classic bestseller featuring more than 60 colour paintings and pencil drawings by the award-winning artist, Alan Lee, Conceptual Designer on Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY.
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey ‘there and back again’. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon…
The prelude to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most beloved and influential books of the twentieth century.
This new eBook edition is illustrated throughout in gorgeous watercolour and delicate pencil by Alan Lee, the Oscar-winning Conceptual Designer on Peter Jackson’s films, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY and THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN.
O livro começa com "O Ainulindalë", o mito da criação do Universo, seguido pelo "Valaquenta", onde estão descritas a natureza e os poderes de cada um dos deuses. O "Akallâbeth" narra o apogeu e a queda do reino da grande ilha de Númenor no final da Segunda Era e "Dos Anéis de Poder" fala dos grandes eventos no final da Terceira Era, como narrado em "O Senhor dos Anéis".
Essencial à história, e jamais modificado, é o destino que se impõe sobre o amor dos protagonistas: Beren é um homem mortal, enquanto Lúthien é uma elfa imortal. O pai dela, um grande senhor élfico, opõe-se ao relacionamento e, para permitir o casamento com Lúthien, impõe a Beren uma tarefa impossível de ser realizada. É esse o foco central da lenda: a tentativa incrivelmente heroica de Beren e Lúthien de, juntos, roubar uma Silmaril do maior de todos os seres malignos, Melkor, chamado Morgoth, o Sombrio Inimigo do Mundo.
Neste livro, Christopher Tolkien tenta extrair a história de Beren e Lúthien da obra mais abrangente em que está inserida. Contudo, a própria lenda foi se modificando conforme novas associações foram sendo criadas dentro da narrativa maior. A fim de mostrar um pouco do processo pelo qual essa lenda da Terra-média evoluiu ao longo dos anos, ele conta a história nas próprias palavras de seu pai ao fornecer, primeiro, a forma original do texto e, em seguida, passagens em prosa e em verso de textos tardios que ilustram a narrativa à medida que ela muda. Apresentados de forma reunida pela primeira vez, esses textos revelam aspectos da história, tanto em eventos quanto em suas imediações narrativas, que posteriormente se perderam.
Publicado no décimo aniversário do livro mais recente sobre a Terra-média, o best-seller internacional Os Filhos de Húrin, este novo volume também inclui desenhos e pinturas de Alan Lee, que também ilustrou O Senhor dos Anéis e O Hobbit, e que ganhou um Oscar por seu trabalho na trilogia cinematográfica de O Senhor dos Anéis.
The forerunner to The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion fills in the background which lies behind the more popular work, and gives the earlier history of Middle-earth, introducing some of the key characters.
The Silmarillion is an account of the Elder Days, of the First Age of Tolkien’s world. It is the ancient drama to which the characters in The Lord of the Rings look back, and in whose events some of them such as Elrond and Galadriel took part. The tales of The Silmarillion are set in an age when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor.
Included in the book are several shorter works. The Ainulindale is a myth of the Creation and in the Valaquenta the nature and powers of each of the gods is described. The Akallabeth recounts the downfall of the great island kingdom of Númenor at the end of the Second Age and Of the Rings of Power tells of the great events at the end of the Third Age, as narrated in The Lord of the Rings.
The paperback edition of The Children of Húrin includes eight color paintings by Alan Lee and a black-and-white map.
All three parts of the epic masterpiece The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers & The Return of the King – available as one download, featuring the definitive edition of the text, hyperlinked footnotes and page references, and 3 maps including a detailed map of Middle-earth.
Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power – the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring – the ring that rules them all – which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.
In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Crack of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.
Since it was first published in 1954, ‘The Lord of the Rings’ has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike.
A história da Queda de Gondolin começou a ser escrita em 1916 e agora ganha vida graças ao trabalho editorial de Christopher Tolkien, filho e executor legal das obras de Tolkien. Dessa forma cumprem-se duas sinas: a dos Elfos noldorin na Primeira Era do mundo e a do autor, ao conseguir publicar individualmente os três Grandes Contos dos Dias Antigos
Fechando a mitologia da Terra-média, A Queda de Gondolin, assim como Beren e Lúthien e Os Filhos de Húrin, foi ricamente ilustrada pelo renomado artista britânico Alan Lee, que retrata a fantasia de Tolkien há mais de 30 anos.
A comprehensive collection of letters spanning the adult life (1914-1973) of one of the world’s most famous storytellers.
‘It is not possible even at great length to "pot" The Lord of the Rings in a paragraph or two. It was begun in 1936, and every part has been written many times… the labour has been colossal; and it must stand or fall, practically as it is.’
J.R.R. Tolkien was one of the most prolific letter writers of this century. Over the years he wrote to his publishers, his family, to friends (including C.S. Lewis, W.H. Auden and Naomi Mitchison) and to fans of his books. The letters present a fascinating and highly detailed portrait of the man in many of his aspects: as storyteller, scholar, Catholic, parent and observer of the world around him. They also shed much light on his creative genius and grand design for the creation of a whole new world – Middle-earth.
This collection will appeal not only to the legions of Tolkien fans, but will entertain anyone who appreciates the art of letter-writing, of which Tolkien was a master.
‘I am nearly always written to as Tolkein (not by you): I do not know why, since it is pronounced by me always -keen.’
The first part of J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic adventure
THE LORD OF THE RINGS
‘A most remarkable feat’
In a sleepy village in the Shire, a young hobbit is entrusted with an immense task. He must make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ruling Ring of Power – the only thing that prevents the Dark Lord Sauron’s evil dominion.
Thus begins J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic tale of adventure, which continues in The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
The fourth volume that contains the early myths and legends which led to the writing of Tolkien’s epic tale of war, The Silmarillion.
In this fourth volume of The History of Middle-earth, the shaping of the chronological and geographical structure of the legends of Middle-earth and Valinor is spread before us.
We are introduced to the hitherto unknown Ambarkanta or “Shape of the World”, the only account ever given of the nature of the imagined Universe, ccompanied by maps and diagrams of the world before and after the cataclyusms of The War of the Gods and the Downfall of Numenor. The first map of Beleriend is also reproduced and discussed.
In The Annals of Valinor and The Annals of Beleriend we are shown how the chronology of the First Age was moulded: and the tale is told of Aelfwine, the Englishman who voyaged into the True West and came to Tol Eressea, Lonely Isle, where he learned the ancient history of Elves and Men.
Also included are the original ‘Silmarillion’ of 1926, and the Quenta Noldorinwa of 1930 – the only version of the myths and legends of the First Age that J R R Tolkien completed to their end.
