Deluxe collector's edition featuring the definitive edition text and containing a full-colour reproduction of Tolkien's painting of the dragon, Glaurung. The book is quarterbound and stamped on the front board with a gold motif previously seen only on the first edition hardback and is presented in a matching slipcase. Unfinished Tales is a collection of narratives ranging in time from the Elder Days of Middle-earth to the end of the War of the Ring, and provides those who have read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with a whole collection of background and new stories from the twentieth century's most acclaimed popular author. The book concentrates on the realm of Middle-earth and comprises such elements as The Quest of Erebor, Gandalf's lively account of how it was that he came to send the Dwarves to the celebrated party at Bag-End; the emergence of the sea-god Ulmo before the eyes of Tuor on the coast of Beleriand; and an exact description of the military organization of the Riders of Rohan. Unfinished Tales also contains the only story about the long ages of Numenor before its downfall, and all that is known about such matters as the Five Wizards, the Palantiri and the legend of Amroth. The tales were edited by Christopher Tolkien, who provides a short commentary on each story, helping the reader to fill in the gaps and put each story into the context of the rest of his father's writings. This deluxe collector's edition includes a full-colour facsimile of Tolkien's painting, 'Glorund sets forth to seek Turin', which illustrates his narrative 'The Children of Hurin' a fold-our reproduction of the definitive map of Middle-earth drawn by Christohper Tolkien. The book is foil stamped with a Numenorean horn that appeared on the first edition hardback and is housed in a matching slipcase.

It is a shame that HarperCollins don't know the difference between a Númenorean horn and a Númenorean helmet!

FANGORN, I take it you realise this has already been mentioned a few pages (pg. 31) back?

Open in new window


It looks like a Horn to me

How would this fit on your head, a helmet's purpose is to provide protection, this seems to fail on every level???
