Discover the amazing history of Middle-earth.

The Book of Lost Tales goes back to the beginning of all of Middle-earth and Valinor. Rooted in English legend and English association, they were set in the narrative frame of a great westward voyage over the Ocean by a mariner named Eriol (or Ælfwine) to Tol Eressëa, the Lonely Isle, where Elves dwelt; from them he learned their true history, the Lost Tales of Elfinesse.

In the Tales are found the earliest accounts and original ideas of Gods and Elves; Dwarves and Orcs; the Silmarils and the Two Trees of Valinor; Nargothrond and Gondolin; and the geography and cosmology of the invented world.

Each tale is followed up with notes and commentary. This book helps to expound upon some of the histories and legends of Middle-earth that are only touched on in The Silmarillion.

- The Cottage of Lost Play
