NEW The Children of Hurin by J. R. R. Tolkien (2007, Hardcover)
The is a brand-new, unread, unused hardcover copy of JRR Tolkien’s Children of Hurin in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. This item is BRAND NEW in the original manufacturer’s box with all the original accessories.
There are tales of Middle-earth from times long before The Lord of the Rings, and the story told in this book is set in the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West: lands where Treebeard once walked, but that were drowned in the great cataclysm that ended the First Age of the World. In that remote time Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in the vast fortress of Angband, the Hells of Iron, in the North; and the tragedy of Turin and his sister Nienor unfolded within the shadow of the fear of Angband and the war waged by Morgoth against the lands and secret cities of the Elves.
Note: This is NOT the limited edition copy signed by Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee that we are also auctioning. You can see that auction here.
