The Ruins of Osgiliath: The Complete Tales of the First City of Gondor is a collection of stories set in Middle-earth, written by Alex Lewis and illustrated by Ruth Lacon. The book was first issued in a series of 3 booklets for members of The Tolkien Society in 1990, created to fund a quality present for Miss Priscilla Tolkien during the 1992 Tolkien Society Conference, celebrating Tolkien's 100th birthday. Like The Tale of Gondolin, the project was not backed by the Tolkien Estate.

The book was released in 2005[1] and was limited to 100 copies worldwide.
