The complete guide to Middle-earth : from the hobbit to The Silmarillion by Robert Foster( Book )

73 editions published between 1949 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy works 'The Hobbit', 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Silmarillion' have delighted millions of readers over the years. 'Middle-earth', the world in which the stories take place, is as real and complex as our own. Events, geography and names were created with care and loving attention by Tolkien, who wanted every single detail of his books to fit into their total pattern. A belief in perfection, the fun of the sub-creation and the desire to create something totally convincing involved him in map-making, endless charts of dates and events and the development of his many invented languages. 'The Complete Guide to Middle-earth' was designed to add to the enjoyment of the reader of 'The Hobbit', 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Silmarillion' by bringing together in an A-Z sequence facts and information about names, languages, places and events from these central books which will provide an indispensable aid to every reader's discovery of Tolkien's world and the new edition has been enhanced by stunning illustrations, courtesy of celebrated Tolkien artist Ted Nasmith.--Amazon.com
