The Maps of Middle-earth Summary

The Maps of Middle-earth: From Numenor and Beleriand to Wilderland and Middle-earth by Brian Sibley

Available together for the first time in a single hardback volume, J.R.R. Tolkiens maps of The Hobbit, Beleriand, Middle-earth and Numenor re-illustrated by John Howe are presented as full colour foldout posters and accompanied by a richly detailed text by Brian Sibley.

This new hardback edition of THE MAPS OF MIDDLE-EARTH presents J.R.R. Tolkiens maps of Wilderland, Beleriand and Middle-earth, together with a unique map of the island-kingdom of Numenor, as featured in Amazon Primes THE RINGS OF POWER.

Each poster-sized foldout map has been re-imagined in full colour by John Howe, the world-renowned Tolkien artist who has worked on Peter Jacksons Academy Award-winning Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Rings of Power TV series as well as the forthcoming Warner Bros animated film, The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim.

The maps are accompanied by a fascinating and authoritative, fully illustrated 160-page text written by Brian Sibley, author of the Sunday Times bestselling THE FALL OF NUMENOR and leading expert on THE LORD OF THE RINGS (he adapted the work for the acclaimed 1981 BBC radio dramatisation), which recounts the story behind each map and provides a richly detailed glossary of every name, place and event.

Designed to complement the growing range of hardback editions of J.R.R. Tolkiens work, this brand new edition is the perfect companion for every fan wishing to learn more about the world of Tolkiens Middle-earth.

Praise for Brian Sibley/The Fall of Numenor:

a grand compendium of all Tolkien said about the period when the foundations of The Lord of the Rings are laid
John Garth, THE GUARDIAN

A trove of source material about one of Middle-earths most intriguing and central back stories nimbly edited by Brian Sibley
WASHINGTON POST

Sibley has beautifully and brilliantly done for Tolkiens Second Age what Christopher Tolkien did for the First Age
