The Myths and Legends of Middle Earth
The epic legendary precursor to 'The Lord Of The Rings'
Illustrated by Ted Nasmith
The Silmarilli were three perfect jewels, fashioned by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves, and within them was imprisoned the last Light of the Two Trees of Valinor. When the first Dark Lord, Morgoth, stole the jewels and set them within an iron crown in the impenetrable fortress of Angband, Feanor and his kindred took up arms against the great Enemy and waged a long and terrible war to recover them.
This is the story of the rebellion by Feanor's allies against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-Earth. It is the history of the heroic First Age in Tolkien's world, the ancient drama long before the time of 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord Of The Rings'.
'The Silmarillion' is presented afresh with 20 sumptuous illustrations by Ted Nasmith, perhaps the finest of Tolkien artists.
