The History of Middle-earth, Part Two

The History of Middle-earth, Part Two

by Christopher Tolkien, J. R. R. Tolkien


Available for Pre-Order. This item will be available on October 6, 2020


This new hardcover edition brings together volumes VI–IX of The History of Middle-earthThe Return of the Shadow, The Treason of Isengard, The War of the Ring, and Sauron Defeated—into one volume. Together these books give a fascinating and complete account of the writing of The Lord of the Rings, and provide the reader with numerous additional scenes, together with rare maps and illustrations, which never made it into the final book, including the epilogue in its entirety.

J.R.R. Tolkien is famous the world over for his unique literary creation, exemplified in The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. What is less well known, however, is that he also produced a vast amount of further material that greatly expands upon the mythology and numerous stories of Middle-earth, and which gives added life to the thousand-year war between the Elves and the evil spirit Morgoth, and his terrifying lieutenant, Sauron.

It was to this enormous task of literary construction that Tolkien’s youngest son and literary heir, Christopher, applied himself to produce the monumental and endlessly fascinating series of twelve volumes, The History of Middle-earth.
