This Rare unusual older map of MIDDLE EARTH. Unknown age of this Print, It matches somewhat, the 1966 map created. This is Sold as is unable to find another identical one like this one on the web. It reads-- Based on the Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien, authorized by The American Publisher Houghton Miflin Co. The lower right corner in type reads BRUIN INC PUBLISHER 342 Madison Ave NY NY. corner torn off see pictures for best description. It measures 30" x 40" and was originally hand created by M. Blackburn. The top of the map reads " BEING A MAP PURPORTING TO TRACE THE DIVERS ROUTES TAKEN BY THE COMPANIONS OF THE RING DURING THEIR HEROIC AND HISTORICAL JOURNEYS THROUGH MIDDLE EARTH". The style of writing is the same as the larger MIDDLE EARTH at the bottom, only smaller. I have no idea of how this map originally was distributed, by book, by itself, with a game, etc. The map/poster is rolled and in good condition. Showing some foxing and small creases and a tear at the bottom middle. I do not have a clue as to the age of this item. It looks to be from the 1960s or 70s. Thanks for looking !!!!
