Christopher Tolken - J. R. R. Tolkien - The Shaping of Middle-earth
THE HISTORY OF MIDDLE-EARTH Poems and prose, maps and chronologies, detours and diversions along the road to Middle-earth . . . Christopher Tolkien has gathered archival materials that his late father, J. R. R. Tolkien, used to create the world and the history behind his classic stories. THE EVOLUTION OF A WORLD This fourth volume of The History of Middle-earth presents early versions of those first tales, from the creation myth to the fall of Morgoth. Writings include a chronology of the events in Beleriand, the first Silmarillion map, and the only known description of the physical nature of Middle-earth's universe. Detailed annotations highlight changes ranging from the spelling of Elvish names to pivotal emendations whose effects reach even to the war of the ring. The Shaping of Middle-earth presents a solid framework by which to trace the development of the early lore of Middle-earth. It is a truly indispensable reference work for those familiar with the history of that endlessly beloved land--and fascinating reading for those just entering that world.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​Adventures of Tom Bombadil
A ​volume of songs, rhymes and poems from "The Red Book". They tell of Tom's encounters with Goldberry, with Old Man Willow, who tries to trap Tom inside his trunk, with the Badger-folk, and with the ghostly Barrow-wight, as well as with a princess, trolls, dwarves and legendary beasts.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​Return of the Shadow
_The ​Return of the Shadow_ is the story of the first part of the history of the creation of _The Lord of the Rings_, a fascinating study of Tolkien’s great masterpiece, from its inception to the end of the first volume, _The Fellowship of the Ring_. In _The Return of the Shadow_ (the abandoned title of the first volume of _The Lord of the Rings) we see how Bilbo’s magic ring evolved into the supremely dangerous Ruling Ring of the Dark Lord; and the precise, and astonishingly unforeseen, moment when a Black Rider first rode in to the Shire. The character of the hobbit called Trotter (afterwards Strider or Aragorn) is developed, though his true identity seems to be an insouluble problem. Frodo’s companions undergo many changes of name and personality; and other major figures appear in unfamiliar guises: a sinister Treebeard, in league with the enemy, and a feocious, malevolent Farmer Maggot. The book comes complete with reproductions of the first maps and facsimile pages from the earliest manuscripts.

J. R. R. Tolkien - El ​Señor de los Anillos

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays
Complete ​collection of Tolkien's essays, including two on Beowulf, which span three decades beginning six years before The Hobbit to five years after The Lord of the Rings. The seven 'essays' by J.R.R. Tolkien assembled in this new paperback edition were with one exception delivered as general lectures on particular occasions; and while they mostly arose out of Tolkien's work in medieval literature, they are accessible to all. Two of them are concerned with Beowulf, including the well-known lecture whose title is taken for this book, and one with Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, given in the University of Glasgow in 1953. Also included in this volume is the lecture English and Welsh; the Valedictory Address to the University of Oxford in 1959; and a paper on Invented Languages delivered in 1931, with exemplification from poems in the Elvish tongues. Most famous of all is On Fairy-Stories, a discussion of the nature of fairy-tales and fantasy, which gives insight into Tolkien's approach to the whole genre. The pieces in this collection cover a period of nearly thirty years, beginning six years before the publication of The Hobbit, with a unique 'academic' lecture on his invention (calling it A Secret Vice) and concluding with his farewell to professorship, five years after the publication of The Lord of the Rings

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​Lost Road and Other Writings
J. ​R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis were friends and fellow members of the literary circle known as The Inklings. It is hardly surprising that, at one point, these talented gentlemen embarked on a challenge: Lewis was to write on "space-travel" and Tolkien on "time-travel." Lewis's novel _Out of the Silent Planet_ became the first book of a science fiction trilogy. Tolkien's unfinished story "The Lost Road" chronicles the original destruction of Númenor, a pivotal event of the Second Age of Middle-earth. In this fifth volume of _The History of Middle-earth_, Christopher Tolkien brings Middle-earth to its state at the writing of _The Lord of the Rings_. Entertaining and informative, THE LOST ROAD AND OTHER WRITINGS offers fresh insights into the evolution of one of the world's most enduring fantasies.

J. R. R. Tolkien - Le ​Silmarillion
Les ​contes du Silmarillion furent l'inspiration sous-jacente et la source de l'imaginaire littéraire de J.R.R. Tolkien : il travailla à ce livre pendant toute sa vie, sans parvenir à lui donner une forme définitive. Précédant de beaucoup Le Seigneur des Anneaux, c'est l'histoire du Premier Age du monde de Tolkien, le drame antique qu'évoquent les personnages du Seigneur des Anneaux et auquel certains d'entre eux prennent part. Le titre, Silmarillion, dérive de Quenta Silmarillion, " L'Histoire des Silmarils ", les trois grands joyaux créés par Fëanor, qui doit aux Elfes la plupart de ses dons, où il emprisonna la lumière des Deux Arbres qui éclairaient Valinor, la terre des Dieux. Quand Morgoth, le premier Seigneur Noir, détruisit les Arbres, cette lumière ne survécut que chez les Silmarils : et Morgoth s'en empara et les plaça sur sa couronne, conservée, dans sa forteresse impénétrable d'Angband, au nord du Milieu-de-la-Terre. Le Silmarillion est l'histoire de la rébellion de Feanor et de son peuple contre les Dieux, leur exil dans la Terre-du-Milieu et leur guerre sans espoir contre le grand Ennemi, en dépit de l'héroïsme des Elfes et des Hommes.

J. R. R. Tolkien - Der ​Herr der Ringe
1. ​Teil: Die Gefährten 2. Teil: Die zwei Türme 3. Teil: Die Wiederkehr des Königs Das legendäre Buch der Westmark ist längst verschollen, und nur Teile davon existieren in verschiedenen späteren Abschriften. Eigentlich war es Bilbos Tagebuch, das er nach Bruchtal mitnahm und das später Frodo zusammen mit eigenen Notizen ins Auenland zurückbrachte. Diese Fragmente und Anhänge, vor allem die Hobbits betreffend, und dazu einzelne Lieder und Gedichte, die häufig an den Rand der Manuskriptseiten gekritzelt waren, sind die wichtigsten Quellen für die Geschichte des Ringkriegs.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​History of Middle-earth Index
Although ​J.R.R Tolkien is well-known for _The Hobbit_, _The Lord of the Rings_ and _The Silmarillion_, the material which laid the groundwork for what must be the most fully realised sub-creation ever to spring from a single imagination was begun many years before the publication of _The Hobbit_, and indeed Tolkien continued to work upon its completion until his death in 1973. In one of the single largest works of 'literary archaeology' ever undertaken, J.R.R. Tolkien's son and literary executor, Christopher Tolkien, edited the vast collection of manuscripts together with maps and illustrations and these were posthumously published in twelve volumes as _The History of Middle Earth_. Christopher Tolkien also compiled a very detailed and thorough index for each of these books. This companion edition to the twelve-volume _History_ now brings together all of the indexes in one place, and provides the reader with an invaluable sourcebook to all the peoples, places and other significant entries from _The Silmarillion_ and _The Lord of the Rings_ which appear in _The History of Middle-earth_.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​Peoples of Middle-earth
When ​J.R.R. Tolkien laid aside _The Silmarillion_ in 1937 the extension of the originall 'mythology' into later Ages of the world had scarcely begun. 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 that he found in providing these Appendices, leading to the delay in the publication of _The Return of the King_, is well known, but in _The Peoples of Middle-earth_ Christopher Tolkien shows that early forms of these works already existed years before, in essays and records differing greatly from the published forms. He traces the evolution of the Calendars, the Hobbit genealogies, the Westron language or Common Speach (from which many words and names are recorded that were afterwards lost), and the chronological structure of the later Ages. Other writings by J.R.R. Tolkien are included in this final volume of _The History of MIddle-earth_, 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 book 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 Númenórean ships is seen through the eyes of men of Middle-earth in the Dark Years.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​Silmarillion
Tolkiens's ​epic legendary precursor to The Lord of The Rings The Silmarilli were three perfect jewels, fashioned by Fëanor, most gifted of the Elves. When the first Dark Lord, Morgoth, stole the jewels for his own ends; Fëanor and his kindred took up arms and waged a long and terrible war to recover them. This is the story of their rebellion against the gods and the history of the heroic First Age of Middle-earth.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​Tolkien Reader
Stories, ​poems, and commentaries by the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings FARMER GILES OF HAM An imaginative history of the distant and marvelous past that introduces the rather unheroic Farmer Giles, whose efforts to capture a somewhat untrustworthy dragon will delight readers everywhere. THE ADVENTURES OF TOM BOMBADIL A collection of verse in praise of Tom Bombadil, that staunch friend of the Hobbits in The Lord of the Rings. TREE AND LEAF Contains “On Fairy-stories,” Professor Tolkien’s now-famous essay on the form of the fairy story and the treatment of fantasy. . . . and other dazzling works, including an introduction by Peter S. Beagle

J. R. R. Tolkien - Charles Dixon - Sean Deming - A ​hobbit - képregény
Mióta ​több mint 50 évvel ezelőtt J. R. R. Tolkien könyve, A hobbit először megjelent, a világ egyik legnépszerűbb olvasmányává vált. Tolkien klasszikus meséjét most gyönyörű, színes képregény formában veheti a kezébe az olvasó. A hobbit Zsákos Bilbó történetét meséli el nekünk ... Egy aprócska teremtményét, aki csendesen és elégedetten éldegél odújában, mígnem egy napon békés élete fenekestül felfordul. Csatlakozik Gandalfhoz és tizenhárom törpéhez, hogy kalandjaik során visszaszerezzék a törpék elrabolt kicseit. Sok veszéllyel teli útjuk után végül Bilbónak egyedül kell szembeszállnia a kincs őrzőjével, a messzi földön félelmetes hírű sárkánnyal, Szmóggal. Az eredeti regényből gondosan átvett szöveget elejétől végéig színes képek kísérik, így ez a nagyszerű kötet újabb rajongókat szerezhet Tolkien varázslatos mesterművének s a hobbitrajongóknak, felnőtteknek és gyerekeknek egyaránt, igazi kincset jelent. A gyönyörű könyvet David Wenzel illusztrálta, képregénynek átdolgozta Charles Dixon és Sean Deming. A könyvben helyet kapott a Vadvidék részletes térképe és Thror térképe is.

J. R. R. Tolkien - A ​Gyűrű keresése
A ​könyv _A Gyűrűk Ura_, _A babó_ és _A szilmarilok_ jól ismert világába, Középföldére vezeti el az olvasót. Visszatér Tolkien könyveinek összes szereplője: Gandalf és Szarumán, az elátkozott Túrin, aki vészt és pusztulást hoz mindenkire, a messzi Tenger után sóvárgó Galadriel úrnő, aki nem hagyhatja el Középföldét, Gollam és az öntelt Tölgyfapajzsos Thorin. Fény derül sok kérdésre, amelyet _A Gyűrűk Ura_ nyitva hagyott. A válaszokat Gandalf adja meg beszámolójában, amely a trilógiából terjedelmi okok miatt maradt ki. _A Gyűrű keresése_ a kezdetektől kíséri végig Középfölde történelmét, egészen a tündék hanyatlásáig és az ember uralmáig. Egy világ több ezer éves története, amelyet egyetlen ember talált ki hatvan év alatt: háborúk és szövetségek, királyok és uralkodók krónikája, birodalmak felemelkedésének és bukásának gyönyörű története. _"Ez a könyv azoknak készült, akik még nem fedezték fel eléggé Középföldét, nyelveit, legendáit, történelmét és királyait."_ _(Christopher Tolkien)_

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​War of the Ring
_The ​War of the Ring_ takes up the story of _The Lord of the Rings_ with the Battle of the Hornburg and the drowning of Isengard by the Ents, continues with the journey of Frodo, Sam and Gollum to the Pass of Cirith Ungol, describes the war in Gondor, and ends with the parley between Gandalf and the ambassador of the Dark Lord before the Black Gate of Mordor. Unforeseen developments that would become central to the narrative are seen at the moment of their emergence: the palantír bursting into fragments on the stairs of Orthanc, its nature as unknown to the author as to those who saw it fall, or the entry of Faramir into the story ('I am sure I did not invent him, I did not even want him, but there he came walking through the woods of Ithilien'). The book is illustrated with the plans and drawings of the changing conception of Orthanc, Dunharrow, Minas Tirith and the tunnels of Shelob's Lair.

J. R. R. Tolkien - Letters ​from Father Christmas
Every ​December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for J.R.R.Tolkien's children. Inside would be a letter in strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful coloured drawing or some sketches. The letters were from Father Christmas. They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how all the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone Polar Bear climbed the North Pole and fell through the roof of Father Christmas's house into the dining-room; how he broke the Moon into four pieces and made the Man in it fall into the back garden; how there were wars with the troublesome horde of goblins who lived in the caves beneath the house! Sometimes the Polar Bear would scrawl a note, and sometimes Ilbereth the Elf would write in his elegant flowing script, adding yet more life and humour to the stories. No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by the inventiveness and 'authenticity' of Tolkien's Letters from Father Christmas.

J. R. R. Tolkien - Kürtő ​úr
_Kürtő ​urat könnyű felismerni, hiszen nem sokan szaladgálnak olyan hatalmas kalapban, mint ő, és még kevesebben tartanak Nyuráfot a kertjükben. Mesénk hőse egy napsütéses reggelen úgy döntött, vásárol magának egy automobilt. De nem kellett volna... Első útja ugyanis sétakocsikázás helyett katasztrófák sorozata lett, és ez nem csak Kürtő úr kifogásolható vezetési stílusának volt köszönhető, hiszen ki gondolta volna, hogy Erős úr és Paprika asszony után még három útonálló medvébe is beleütközik?_ _Tolkien professzor gyermekei szórakoztatására írta és rajzolta ezt a mesekönyvet, amelyet most fakszimile kiadásban tarthat kezében a kedves Olvasó. A könyv páratlan oldalain megőriztük a mester saját kézírását és csodálatos rajzait, a páros oldalakon pedig az eredeti angol szöveg magyar fordítása olvasható._

J. R. R. Tolkien - John D. Rateliff - The ​History of The Hobbit
In ​one volume for the first time, this revised and updated examination of how J.R.R.Tolkien came to write his original masterpiece ‘The Hobbit’ includes his complete unpublished draft version of the story, together with notes and illustrations by Tolkien himself. For the first time in one volume, The History of the Hobbit presents the complete unpublished text of the original manuscript of J.R.R.Tolkien’s The Hobbit, accompanied by John Rateliff's lively and informative account of how the book came to be written and published. As well as recording the numerous changes made to the story both before and after publication, it examines – chapter-by-chapter – why those changes were made and how they reflect Tolkien's ever-growing concept of Middle-earth. The Hobbit was first published on 21 September 1937. Like its successor, The Lord of the Rings, it is a story that "grew in the telling", and many characters and story threads in the published text are completely different from what Tolkien first wrote to read aloud to his young sons as part of their "fireside reads". As well as reproducing the original version of one of literature's most famous stories, both on its own merits and as the foundation for The Lord of the Rings, this new book includes many little-known illustrations and previously unpublished maps for The Hobbit by Tolkien himself. Also featured are extensive annotations and commentaries on the date of composition, how Tolkien's professional and early mythological writings influenced the story, the imaginary geography he created, and how Tolkien came to revise the book years after publication to accommodate events in The Lord of the Rings. Like Christopher Tolkien’s The History of The Lord of the Rings before it, this is a thoughtful yet exhaustive examination of one of the most treasured stories in English literature. Long overdue for a classic book now celebrating 75 years in print, this companion edition offers fascinating new insights for those who have grown up with this enchanting tale, and will delight those who are about to enter Bilbo's round door for the first time.

J. R. R. Tolkien - A ​woottoni kovácsmester
Valamikor ​régen - vagy nem is olyan régen - volt egyszer egy falu. Nagy-Woottonnak hívták, hisz kétségtelenül nagyobb volt, mint a néhány mérföldnyire fekvő Kis-Wootton. Hogy különleges falu lett volna? Talán nem. Mégis, az biztos, hogy réges-régóta élt itt egy szokás, mely megkülönböztette az összes többi falutól a kerek világon. Huszonnégy évente ugyanis itt tartották meg a Jó Gyerekek Lakomáját, ahol a Szakács felszolgálta a Nagy Tortát. Gyönyörű torta volt az, cukormázzal bevont, édes és hatalmas; nem is csoda hát, hogy a gyerekeknek, még sokáig összecsordult a nyál a szájukban, ha visszagondoltak rá. Ám történt egyszer, hogy a Nagy Torta ősi receptjét egy botcsinálta Szakács új összetevővel egészítette ki: egy tündércsillaggal. Nem tudta, hogy az a gyermek, aki lenyeli a csillagot, megkapja a tündérek nyughatatlan vándorlelkét csakúgy, mint a jogot, hogy beléphessen Tündérországba. Évek teltek el, s a hajdani kisfiúból lett kovácsmester - kinek különös csillag díszíti a homlokát - most útra kél, hogy megkeresse a mesék tündéreit.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The ​Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien
A ​comprehensive collection of letters spanning the adult life (1914-1973) of one of the world’s most famous storytellers. ‘It is not possible even at great length to "pot" The Lord of the Rings in a paragraph or two. It was begun in 1936, and every part has been written many times… the labour has been colossal; and it must stand or fall, practically as it is.’ J.R.R. Tolkien was one of the most prolific letter writers of this century. Over the years he wrote to his publishers, his family, to friends (including C.S. Lewis, W.H. Auden and Naomi Mitchison) and to fans of his books. The letters present a fascinating and highly detailed portrait of the man in many of his aspects: as storyteller, scholar, Catholic, parent and observer of the world around him. They also shed much light on his creative genius and grand design for the creation of a whole new world – Middle-earth. This collection will appeal not only to the legions of Tolkien fans, but will entertain anyone who appreciates the art of letter-writing, of which Tolkien was a master. ‘I am nearly always written to as Tolkien (not by you): I do not know why, since it is pronounced by me always - keen.’
