John Ronald Reuel Tolkein was also a scholar of Anglo Saxon and Middle English... He translated Pearl, Sir Gawain and the Green Night, He was a also a scholar of Beowulf and Chaucer... Just saying...

Dose any one know the name of the book the way Tolkien wanted it? I can only seem to find the 3 separate books as a set.

It's been published a couple times as simply "The Lord of the Rings". I would suggest you search Amazon for the 50'th Anniversary Edition, as it's one of the nicer single-volume releases.

You could reasonably argue that the "Foundation Trilogy" wasn't a true "trilogy" either. They were actually a series of short stories published in Astounding over the course of eight years and later collected for publication in three volumes.
