Description


Dive into the fantastical world and vocabulary of J. R. R. Tolkien with this beautiful flexibound edition.

J. R. R. Tolkien created characters and a world so unique and so rich with details that they warranted a whole new vocabulary to go with them. On these pages, you’ll find a chronology of Tolkien’s life, along with a short biography and an explanation of his writings. Then you can flip through the dictionary to discover terms like Aglarond (the great caverns beneath Helm’s Deep) or the Black Riders and the mystery surrounding them, among many others. This volume, as featured on The Late Show with Steven Colbert, serves as a terrific resource for all those who love Middle Earth and its inhabitants. A Dictionary of Tolkien is a beautiful addition to any home library and makes a great conversation piece.
