The Complete Guide to Middle-Earth
by Robert Foster

An A-Z compendium of every person, place and thing in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings (and a bit more). This is a terrific book, especially for "trivia" minded people. Of course, you want to read The Lord of the Rings first (and its appendices), but this is great fun and well done.

The Maps of Tolkien's Middle-Earth
by J.R.R. Tolkien (Creator), Brian Sibley (Author), John Howe (Illustrator)

Best-selling Tolkien expert Brian Sibley (The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy and The Lord of the Rings Official Movie Guide) presents a slipcased collection of four full-color, large-format maps of Tolkien's imaginary realm illustrated by John Howe, a conceptual designer for the blockbuster films directed by Peter Jackson. The set includes a hardcover book describing in detail the importance and evolution of geography within Tolkien's epic fiction and four color maps presented with minimal folds, including two (Beleriand and Númenor) never before published in this country.

Atlas of Middle-Earth
by Karen Wynn Fonstad

Fonstad has been mapping middle-earth since 1981. This edition has everything: general maps from the First, Second and Third Ages, battle maps, place maps (eg, Minas Tirith, Moria, etc.), all the journeys - you name it, she has it. There are also theme maps on peoples, languages, vegetation, climate, and more. Highly recommended.

The Journeys of Frodo
by Barbara Strachey

First published over 20 years ago, Strachey made these maps for her own pleasure. They detail all of Frodo's journey and those of his companions. She also provides necessary explanatory text. This is quite different from Fonstad's book, but of great value to Tolkien fans.

Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings: A Guide to Middle-Earth
by Colin Duriez

"This absorbing guide to the mind behind Middle-earth will introduce or remind readers of the abundance that exists in Tolkien's thought and imagination. Interweaving sections explore The Lord of the Rings and its history; the key themes, concepts and images in Tolkien's work; the people, and places in his life, and his other writings. At the heart of the book is an indispensable A-Z of Middle-earth, with detailed entries on Beings, Places, Things and Events. Readers will also be introduced to Tolkien's deeply spiritual message, which was of great importance in his creation of Middle-earth." book description.
