Revised Edition - Completely UpdatedKaren Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-Earth is an essential volume that will enchant all Tolkien fans. Here is the definitive guide to the geography of Middle-earth, from its founding in the Elder Days through ...
lder Days through the Third Age, including the journeys of Bilbo, Frodo, and the Fellowship of the Ring. Authentic and updated -- nearly one third of the maps are new, and the text is fully revised -- the atlas illuminates the enchanted world created in The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings. Hundreds of two-color maps and diagrams survey the journeys of the principal characters day by day --battles, castles, forests, far lands, distinctive landforms, climate, vegetation and population.
"Absolutely indispensable... In its scope and coverage it is a masterful work, a fitting monument to the talents and imagination of the cartographer and of the man who invented these lands." -- Mythprint, Mythopoeic Society
