Unfinished Tales is a collection of narratives ranging in time ì from the Elder Days of Middle-earth to the end of the War of the ì Ring, and provides those who have read The Lord of the Rings with ì a whole collection of background and new stories from the ì twentieth century's most acclaimed popular author. The book ì concentrates on the realm of Middle-earth and comprises such ì elements as Gandalf's lively account of how it was that he came ì to send the Dwarves to the celebrated party at Bag-End, the ì emergence of the sea-god Ulmo before the eyes of Tuor on the ì coast of Beleriand, and an exact description of the military ì organization of the Riders of Rohan. Unfinished Tales also ì contains the only story about the long ages of Numenor before its ì downfall, and all that is known about such matters as the Five ì Wizards, the Palantiri and the legend of Amroth. The tales were ì collated and edited by JRR Tolkien's son and literary heir, ì Christopher Tolkien, who provides a short commentary on each ì story, helping the reader to fill in the gaps and put each story ì into the context of the rest of his father's writings.
This is a used book and is in Good condition.
