The maps were essential and urgent but Tolkien could not get them done. Enormous time had been spent without profit due to lack of skill plus being harried. He could not squeeze the Shire as described in the tale into the shape of a page, nor make it informative at that size. Tolkien felt that the maps had to be properly done, especially since the "burned manuscripts" had disappeared.
