Product description

Review

‘Physically beautiful and sometimes overwhelming in its power, this book is 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

‘It brings a Biblical grandeur to Tolkien’s fictional history’
WINTER IS COMING

‘A trove of source material about one of Middle-earth’s most intriguing and central back stories. The book is beautifully illustrated by Alan Lee and nimbly edited by Brian Sibley’
WASHINGTON POST

‘For those wishing to expand their understanding of Middle-earth and the incredible legend crafted by Tolkien, this is an essential piece to complete that puzzle’
BOOK REPORTER

‘How, given little over half a century of work, did one man become the creative equivalent of a people?’
THE GUARDIAN

‘Demanding to be compared with English mythologies… at times rises to the greatness of true myth’
FINANCIAL TIMES

‘A creation of singular beauty… magnificent in its best moments’
WASHINGTON POST

‘With this most recent volume, The Fall of Númenor, Sibley has beautifully and brilliantly done for Tolkien’s Second Age what Christopher Tolkien did for the First Age’
NATIONAL REVIEW
