The Silmarillion, the Myths and Legends of Middle-Earth, published by Harper Collins in 1998. This is the 1st impression of this lovely illustrated edition. This new edition contains 20 full color illustrations specially commissioned from artist Ted Nasmith. J.R.R. Tolkien's account of the Elder Days, the tales of the Silmarillion are legends deriving from a much deeper past, when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him to recover the Silmarils. Originally published in 1977, 4 years after his death, Christopher Tolkien has gathered together and edited, what he considered his life's work. This book is in Near Fine condition, now housed in a custom faux leather slipcase to help protect this beautiful copy. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.
