Read full description of the books:
Here is a book to enchant and inform anyone from the casual reader of The Lord of the Rings to the dedicated student of Tolkien's life and his many works.
David Day's innovative and illuminating perspectives on the historical, geographical, sociological and biological evolution of Tolkien's world fully chronicle its 37,000-year-old history from its creation to the aftermath of the War of the Ring. By drawing upon all Tolkien's stories and exploring the linkages, he has produced the first comprehensive guide to the most complex and detailed invented world and mythological system in the history of literature.
More than 500 alphabetic entries in the five major subject areas - History, Geography, Sociology, Natural History and Biography - cover every important aspect of Middle-earth and the Undying Lands. They are brought to life with 200 powerful and imaginative drawings and paintings and more than 20 pages of charts and maps.
A delight to browse through and a work of art in itself, Tolkien: The Illustrated Encyclopedia is an ideal companion to the epic world of J. R. R. Tolkien.
