J.R.R. Tolkien Birthday Anniversary!

The Lord of the Rings ranks as one of the best-selling novels of all time, while first editions of The Hobbit have been rated among the most expensive of the 20th Century. With such a high demand and popularity for Tolkien’s works – it’s no surprise why enthusiasts would be more than happy to see more books released.

Author John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born January 3, 1892. Tolkien is such a prolific author that, 45 years after his death (1973), he is still providing us with publications that sell in their tens of thousands.
Get to know J.R.R Tolkien and his other memorable protagonists by visiting our website:
