The fantasy world of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth is teeming with a diverse array of people, cities, and creatures, woven together by a history that spans thousands of years. In this exquisitely illustrated, leather-bound volume, best-selling author and Tolkien scholar David Day compiles four decades of research and writing on the lands and inhabitants of Middle-earth. This A-to-Z dictionary is organized into sections that discuss the battles, history, beasts, and heroes of Tolkien’s stories, all accompanied by detailed black-and-white illustrations. Additionally, this comprehensive volume includes an appendix featuring three primary legends that inspired Tolkien’s creations—the Volsunga saga, the Nibelungenlied, and Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle—and more than 200 illustrations.
