The first volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGS One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in The Hobbit. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. “A unique, wholly realized other world, evoked from deep in the well of Time, massively detailed, absorbingly entertaining, profound in meaning.” – New York Times

›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ – eine der drei Großen Geschichten des Ersten Zeitalters von Mittelerde Zwei der größten Mächte Mittelerdes stehen sich in ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ gegenüber: Auf der einen Seite Morgoth, die Verkörperung des Bösen und auf der anderen Ulmo, der Herr der Meere, Seen und Flüsse unter dem Himmel. Im Zentrum ihres Konflikts steht die verborgene Elben-Stadt Gondolin. Turgon, König von Gondolin, wird von Morgoth mehr als alles andere gehasst. Seit Langem versucht der dunkle Herrscher, Gondolin zu finden und zu zerstören, aber vergeblich. In diese Welt kommt Tuor und wird zum Werkzeug von Ulmos Plan. Von ihm geleitet, macht sich Tuor auf den gefahrvollen Weg nach Gondolin und gelangt in die verborgene Stadt. Dort heiratet er Idril, die Tochter Turgons; ihr Sohn ist Earendil, dem es vorherbestimmst ist, einmal der berühmteste Seefahrer des Ersten Zeitalters zu werden. Durch einen gemeinen Verräter erfährt Morgoth, wie er einen vernichtenden Angriff gegen die Stadt führen kann, mit Balrogs, Drachen und zahllosen Orks. Das Verhängnis nimmt seinen Lauf. Christopher Tolkien verwendet in dieser Ausgabe eine vergleichbare Darstellung der Entwicklung der Geschichte wie bei ›Beren und Lúthien‹. Für J.R.R. Tolkien war ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ »die erste richtige Geschichte aus dieser imaginären Welt«, und wie ›Beren und Lúthien‹ und ›Die Kinder Húrins‹ zählte er sie zu den drei ›Großen Geschichten‹ des Ersten Zeitalters von Mittelerde. ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ wurde von Christopher Tolkien herausgegeben und bildet den Abschluss der drei großen Geschichten, die 2007 mit ›Die Kinder Húrins‹ begonnen und 2017 mit ›Beren und Lúthien‹ fortgesetzt wurde. Dieser neue Band enthält zahlreiche Farbtafeln des berühmten Tolkien-Künstlers Alan Lee. Weltweiter Erscheinungstermin von ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹: 30. August 2018

This deluxe hardcover edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy contains a short introduction by Christopher Tolkien, a reset text incorporating the most up-to-date corrections, and all of Tolkien’s own drawings and full-color illustrations, including the rare “Mirkwood” piece. J.R.R. Tolkien's own description for the original edition: "If you care for journeys there and back, out of the comfortable Western world, over the edge of the Wild, and home again, and can take an interest in a humble hero (blessed with a little wisdom and a little courage and considerable good luck), here is a record of such a journey and such a traveler. The period is the ancient time between the age of Faerie and the dominion of men, when the famous forest of Mirkwood was still standing, and the mountains were full of danger. In following the path of this humble adventurer, you will learn by the way (as he did) -- if you do not already know all about these things -- much about trolls, goblins, dwarves, and elves, and get some glimpses into the history and politics of a neglected but important period. For Mr. Bilbo Baggins visited various notable persons; conversed with the dragon, Smaug the Magnificent; and was present, rather unwillingly, at the Battle of the Five Armies. This is all the more remarkable, since he was a hobbit. Hobbits have hitherto been passed over in history and legend, perhaps because they as a rule preferred comfort to excitement. But this account, based on his personal memoirs, of the one exciting year in the otherwise quiet life of Mr. Baggins will give you a fair idea of the estimable people now (it is said) becoming rather rare. They do not like noise."
