This is an auction for THE TOLKIEN COMPANION by J E A Tyler. review:

“Between 1932 and 1953, Professor John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, of Oxford University, translated four volumes compiled by the renowned Hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, written during the Third Age of Middle Earth, far earlier than the period during which the Celtic, Germanic and Icelandic manuscripts Professor Tolkien was used to deciphering had been written. The result was The Hobbit. In 1954, seventeen years after The Hobbit first appeared, its sequel, The Lord of the Rings, was published, and became the centrepiece of Tolkien's work. The Ring Epic covers approximately ten thousand years, and contains a vast amount of information as well as a huge variety of words and names which Tolkien translated from the Elvish and Mannish tongues. THE TOLKIEN COMPANION is a guide through the world of Middle Earth, compiling every fact, name, word, and date from all the works into one accessible volume. Here, in one source, is the High History of the Elven peoples. The origin of Morgoth the Enemy is clarified, as is his Fall and the subsequent rise to power of Sauron the Great, the Lord of the Rings. The heroic epic of how the Free Peoples--Elves, Men, Ents, Dwarves, and Hobbits--survived the Peril of the Ancient World is detailed. And a guide to the various Elvish writing systems, together with explanatory maps, charts, and genealogical tables, brings the genius of Tolkien and the world and wonder of Middle Earth to life. THE TOLKIEN COMPANION is an indispensable accompaniment for anyone who embarks on the reading journey of a lifetime."
