HERE IS TRULY A MASTER KEY
TO TOLKIEN’S MIDDLE-EARTH



From the Trade Paperback edition.

Baker & Taylor
Highlighted by a new four-color map of Middle-earth, a literary guide to the fantasy works of J. R. R. Tolkien lists every character, event, and place in all of Tolkien's books set in Middle-earth, incorporating detailed references to The Silmarillion, which the author considered his most important work, as well as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Blackwell North Amer
Foster set out to gather the disparate strands of Tolkien's published writings on Middle-earth into a single comprehensive volume. The result of that labor of love is The Complete Guide to Middle-earth: an invaluable supplement faithful in spirit and substance to the masterpieces that inspired it.
Whether you're a first-time reader interested in learning more or a devoted fan steeped in Tolkien-lore, The Complete Guide to Middle-earth contains everything you're looking for: from the origin of Middle-earth and its denizens in the myth-shrouded reaches of prehistory to the dawning of the First Age, when Sauron first enslaved himself to evil...from the forging of the Rings of Power in the Second Age, when a defeated Sauron rose once more to take a terrible vengeance, to the Third Age, wherein a young hobbit named Frodo Baggins takes upon his shoulders the fate of all the free peoples of Middle-earth. More than just an indispensable resource, this guide is the next best thing to having Tolkien himself at your side.
