Before Middle-earth there was Beleriand, the setting of the great War of the Jewels which took place many generations before the events of 'The Lord of the Rings.' This was Morgoth’s territory before the cataclysmic events which transformed the landscape into that in which Frodo and his countrymen undertook their quest for the 'Rings of Power.' 'The Map of Tolkien’s Beleriand and the Lands to the North' is skilfully and faithfully reproduced by John Howe. Lavishly rendered in full colour and depicting a montage of heraldic emblems and dramatic scenes from 'The Silmarillion', it completes the trilogy of authorized Tolkien maps by John Howe. The map is accompanied by an illustrated booklet by Tolkien expert and playwright Brian Sibley which examines the principal events which took place on the map, together with the history of 'The Silmarillion' and its relevance to Tolkien’s other major works.
