Complete integrated indices of History of Middle-earth volumes to complement new series. For the first time every index from each of the twelve volumes of The History Of Middle-earth has been published together in a single volume -- to create a supreme index charting the writing of Tolkien's masterpieces The Lord of The Rings and The Silmarillion. This stunning work of reference complements the fascinating History of Middle-earth series, now repackaged to complement the distinctive and classic style of the 'black cover' A-format paperbacks of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.
From the Back Cover
Although J.R.R Tolkien is well-known for 'The Hobbit', 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Silmarillion', the material which laid the groundwork for what must be the most fully realised sub-creation ever to spring from a single imagination was begun many years before the publication of 'The Hobbit', and indeed Tolkien continued to work upon its completion until his death in 1973.
In one of the single largest works of 'literary archaeology' ever undertaken, J.R.R. Tolkien's son and literary executor, Christopher Tolkien, edited the vast collection of manuscripts together with maps and illustrations and these were posthumously published in twelve volumes as 'The History of Middle Earth.'
Christopher Tolkien also compiled a very detailed and thorough index for each of these books. This companion edition to the twelve-volume 'History' now brings together all of the indexes in one place, and provides the reader with an invaluable sourcebook to all the peoples, places and other significant entries from 'The Silmarillion' and 'The Lord of the Rings' which appear in 'The History of Middle-earth.'See all Product description

[Note: This review applies to the first impression of the set, printed by Clays]
[Edit: The set has now been reprinted by LEGO, Spa in Italy. The quality of the slipcase is now much improved (although there are still no curved sides) and the set now matches the other deluxe editions in terms of overall height (although not design). Interestingly, this is still showing as "1" on the numberline, so there are two official first prints. The Clays one is awful and the LEGO one is - at least - passable. Consequently, I have added an extra star]
