Christopher Tolkien, born on 21st November 1924, is the third son of J.R.R. Tolkien. Appointed by Tolkien to be his literary executor, he has devoted himself since his father's death in 1973 to the editing and publication of unpublished writings, notably The Silmarillion and the collections entitled Unfinished Tales and The History of Middle-earth. Since 1975 he has lived in France with his wife Baillie.
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father’s death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures.

Descrizione libro Harper Collins, London, 1996. Hard Cover. Condizione libro: Near Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good Plus. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Peoples of Middle-Earth, by J.R.R. Tolkien, edited by Christopher Tolkien. Published by Harper Collins in 1996. This book is in Near Fine condition, with no writing or previous owners names. The paper has lightly browned at the edges, as is common with the last 3 volumes of the series, due to paper quality issues. There is no foxing or offsetting to the interior of the textblock, and no spotting to the edges. The dustjacket is not priced or clipped, indicating this is the export edition. It shows very little rubbing to the glossy surface, minor edgewear with a tiny bit of color loss to the upper rear spine fold area. The spine is not faded as is often the case. This remains the toughest of the series to find, as Harper Collins pulled the edition from shelves, and pulped them, leaving only a very few copies in circulation. This is not a library or Print on Demand copy, but a highly prized true UK 1st Edition 1st Impression in wonderful condition. From the blurb, 'The final volume of the 12 volume series of The History of Middle-Earth in which Christopher Tolkien shows the evolution, from his fathers records and essays, of the chronology of the later Ages, the Calendars, the Hobbit genealogies, and the Westron language or Common Speech. This book concludes with two unfinished stories, The New Shadow, taking place in Gondor of The Fourth Age, and the tale of Tal-elmar, the coming of the dreaded Numenorean ships as seen through the eyes of men during the Dark Years.' Additional digital images are 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. Near Fine / Very Good Plus.
