One Gross is a measurement equal to 144 of something. It is used at present time and wasn't invented by J.R.R. Tolkien but one gross was the amount of people invited to Bilbo's Birthday Party. However, when Bilbo called them thus, many were insulted as the term "gross" was not used properly on people (or hobbits).
