Depends whether you like illustrated editions, or prefer individual books instead of one ginormous volume ultimately. I'm pretty sure you can find pages or youtube videos explaining all of the different editions though.

One would assume the trilogy: Fellowship of the Ring; The Two Towers; and Return of the King. Total 1248 pages.

I'm a little confused about the illustrations....they say they're Tolkein's (and the maps that are well know to any previous reader certainly are) but it also shows watercolor images in the Amazon reviews, that are decidedly NOT Tolkien's (they look like they're from a different edition, one that I have which is three hardbound volumes with art by (Alan Lee? Brian Froud? Someone along those lines), which were done after the movies (many are based on the visualizations created for the movies. As far as I know, Tolkien didn't do illustrations like these. I assume this is part of the usual issue with Amazon where they lump reviews for multiple related things into one glob of commentary. Just be aware.

*edit: yes, the watercolor illustrations showing up in the amazon reviews section are from the 2013 or earlier version, and are by Alan Lee, not Tolkien.**
Just want to point out if it isn't obvious to people, this is the three Lord of the Rings books bound into one book.
YOU SHALL NOT PASS... on this deal if you loved the story.

Ooh, the illustrations are by Tolkien himself -- I looked it up, and the announcement says there are 30 of Tolkien's illustrations plus a fold-out map.

Beats an illustrated Lord of the Flies, or Lord of the Dance for that matter.

I want this badly but have vowed not to add to my physical bookshelf. Had 4 moves in 2 years plus water damage. Most of my books survived but can't have another pep-talk with myself on the importance of perspective.

I want this, but I'd really rather have the UK/Canadian version. Still a fantastic deal for this version though. 👍
