The volume consists of a foreword, in which the author discusses his writing of The Lord of the Rings , a prologue titled "Concerning Hobbits , and other matters", and the main narrative in Book I and Book II. Tolkien envisioned The Lord of the Rings as a single volume work divided into six sections he called "books" along with extensive appendices. The original publisher decided to split the work into three parts.
