Very interesting for any fan of Tolkien and the Lord of the rings, the creation of a language by great professor of Philology and Tolkien specialist Tom A. Shippey. The book aslo contains stunning proof illustrations by Bill Sanderson. Measuring 8 by 11.5 inchesIn blue card covers that are slightly foxed to spine. Internally clean, bright and sound. 427pp. An epic novel where civilized dinosaurs and primitive men struggle for dominence, the premise is that the meteor strike of 65 million years ago never happened and therefore the dinosaurs were not rendered extinct. A stunning imaginative work from a great storyteller.
