Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of THE PEOPLES OF MIDDLE-EARTH, by JRR Tolkien and published by HarperCollins Publishers, London, in 1996. Volume XII in The History of Middle-earth series, edited by Christopher Tolkien. Jacket has the price (£25) and the ISBN number on the inside front flap. Very scarce.

The book is in very good condition (clean blue boards with gold lettering on spine) in a clean, unclipped dust jacket, which has no wear to speak of, except a little light creasing to the edges. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

It was in the Appendices to The Lord of the Rings that there emerged a comprehensive historical structure and chronology of the Second and Third Ages, embracing all the diverse strands that came together in the War of the Ring. The difficulty bordering on despair that Tolkien found in providing these Appendices, leading to delay in the publication of The Return of the King, is well known; but in The Peoples of Middle-earth Christopher Tolkien shows that the work had in fact been achieved years before, in essays and records differing greatly from the published forms.

In these early texts is seen the evolution of the chronology of the later Ages, the Calendars, the Hobbit genealogies (with those of families that were printed but not published), and the Westron language or Common Speech (from which many words and names are recorded that were afterwards lost).

Following the account of the Appendices a number of other writings by J.R.R. Tolkien are included in this book, chiefly deriving from his last years, when new insights and new constructions still freely arose as he pondered the history that he had created.

This final volume of The History of Middle-earth concludes with two soon-abandoned stories, both unique in the setting of time and place: The New Shadow in Gondor of the Fourth Age, and the tale of Tal-elmar, in which the coming of the dreaded Numenorean ships is seen through the eyes of men of Middle-earth in the Dark Years.

482 pages.
