    DescriptionFor all those who journey to Middle Earth, here is the complete guide to its lands, legends, histories, languages, and people. "The Complete Tolkien Companion" explains, translates, and links every single reference--names, dates, places, facts, famous weapons, even food and drink--to be found in J. R. R. Tolkien's world, which includes not only "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" but also "The Simarillion" and many other posthumously published works. A detailed explanation of the various Elvish writing systems, together with maps, charts, and genealogical tables, bring the remarkable genius of Tolkien and the unforgettable world and wonder of Middle Earth to life with focus and accuracy. First published in 1976, this is an indispensable accompaniment for anyone who embarks on the reading journey of a lifetime.
