This beautifully illustrated book showcases the highlights of the Tolkien archives held at the Bodleian Library. From J. R. R. Tolkien’s childhood in the Midlands and his experience of the First World War to his studies at school and university, from his exquisite illustrations for The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings to his intricate and beautiful maps showing the topography of Middle-earth, this stunning book is a perfect introduction to Tolkien’s life and works. Tolkien: Treasures sheds light on the extraordinary genius and imagination that brought us Middle-earth, with all its Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Ringwraiths, Wizards, and, of course, Hobbits.

Review Quotes
Nancy Martsch, Beyond Bree
"Probably the finest reproduction of Tolkien's art (and maps), published to date. The true glory of this book is the illustrations, all of which seem to be in true colour, often accompanied by enlarged details . . .Tolkien: Treasures  is definitely worth purchasing."
