FOSTER, Robert. The Complete Guide to Middle-Earth. London: George Allen & Unwin, 1978.
8vo., original blue publisher's cloth, backstrip lettered in gilt; in the original unclipped pictorial dust jacket (£4.95); upper edge black; pp. [vii], viii-xii, [iii], 2-441, [ix]; near-fine, just some very light creasing to jacket edges.
First UK edition of this reference book for Tolkien's fictional universe, and a major expansion on the incredibly scarce, limited edition of 1971. Generally recognised as an excellent reference book on Middle-earth, Christopher Tolkien himself decried it, an "admirable work of reference."
