The Peoples of Middle-earth

£65.00

Product description

The concluding volume of The History of Middle-earth series, which examines the Appendices to The Lord of the Rings.

The Peoples of Middle-earth traces the evolution of the Appendices to The Lord of The Rings, which provide a comprehensive historical structure of the Second and Third Ages, including Calendars, Hobbit genealogies and the Westron language. The book concludes with two unique abandoned stories: The New Shadow, set in Gondor during the Fourth Age, and the tale of Tal-elmar, in which the coming of the dreaded Numenorean ships is seen through the eyes of men of Middle-earth in the Dark Years.

The book has blue boards and gilt titles and is in very good condition. The cover is fine and the binding is sound. However, the text block edges are slightly browned, with the upper edge having some foxing spots. Page margins are lightly tanned. The jacket has some light surface rubbing and general marks, plus a little creasing to the upper edge.

With the publication of this book, the long history of J.R.R. Tolkien’s creation is completed and the enigmatic state of his work can be understood.
