504 pp, 9" H. Dust jacket has 17.95 at bottom corner of front flap. Colour frontispiece in tones of yellowish green and black, b&w maps, drawings, reproductions, runes. "(T)he seventh volume in Christopher Tolkien's 'History of Middle-earth' and the second in his account of the evolution of 'The Lord of the Rings'. (Traces) the great expansion of the tale into new lands and new peoples south and east of the Misty Mountains: the emergence of Lothlorien, of Ents, of the Riders of Rohan, and of Saruman the White in the fortress of Isengard. In brief outlines and pencilled drafts dashed down on scraps of paper are seen the first entry of Galadriel, the earliest ideas of the history of Gondor, the original meeting of Aragorn and Eowyn, its significance destined to wholly transformed. Conceptions of what lay ahead are seen dissolving as the story took its own path, as in the account of the capture of Frodo and his rescue by Sam Gamgee from Minas Morgul, written long before J.R.R. Tolkien actually came to the point in the writing of 'The Lord of the Rings'. A chief feature of the book is a full account of the original Map, with re-drawings of successive phases, which was long the basis and accompani-ment of the emerging geography of Middle-earth. An appendix describes the Runic alphabets as they were at that time, with illustrations of the forms and an analysis of the Runes used in the Book of Mazarbul found beside Balin's tomb in Moria." There is a black remainder mark on bottom edge of the textblock, positioned against the spine, so not as noticeable as in many cases, two tiny dents and one small shallow dent on rear board, very small dent on top edge at corner, tiny bump at top of hinges. Dust jacket has corresponding dents on back panel, tiny dent on rear hinge, minor edge wear/wrinkling, minor rubbing.
