Houghton Mifflin Harcourt The Atlas of Middle-Earth

Find your way through every part of J.R.R. Tolkien's great creations, from the Middle-earth of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit to the undying lands of the West...

Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-Earth is an indispensable volume that will enchant all Tolkien fans. Here is the essential guide to the geography of Middle-earth from its founding in the Elder Days through the Third Age, re-creating the journeys of Bilbo, Frodo, and the Fellowship of the Ring. Authentic and updated - nearly one third of the maps are new with a fully revised text - it illuminates the enchanted world created in The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings. Hundreds of two-color maps and diagrams survey the journeys of the principal characters day by day - including all the battles and key locations of the First, Second, and Third Ages. Plans and descriptions of castles, buildings, and distinctive landforms are given, along with thematic maps describing the climate, vegetation, languages and population distribution of Middle-earth throughout its history. An extensive appendix and an index help readers correlate the maps with Tolkien's novels.

This is a nice atlis! It not only has maps of middle earth, but it has maps of the Fellowship's and Bilbo's journeys and maps that are shaded for language and climate. It also has information telling you what age the map is from and more. The only thing I didn't really like (nothing to do with quality, just personal prefference) is that it is a paperback, I would have liked a hardcover atlis better, but it's only a minor thing. If you get lost in your journeys to Middle Earth, whether it is Lord of the Rings of the History of Middle Earth, you need this atlis.
