Greetings, and welcome to the Reference Material Forum!

If you are new to the City and have not yet done so, it might be profitable for you to read the Frequently Asked Questions section, and the City Code of Law and Ethics.

Below is an overview of what this forum should be used for, and how.
Further down there are:
1) A list of the Books by J.R.R. Tolkien
2) A list of the Principal Bibliographical Works about J.R.R. Tolkien
3) A list of Books about J.R.R. Tolkien
4) Information concerning Christopher Tolkien

These links are by no means exhaustive - instead they are to show some of the diversity of interesting topics.

This is the place for all discussions that do not easily fit into the other Literary Forums. For instance, the Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings, the History of Middle-earth series, and the Silmarillion all have their own Forums. Other works written by Tolkien, or written about Tolkien, are usually discussed here. Most of these are Middle-earth related, but some are not.

In addition to specific works, on some occasions topics that deal with the entire corpus of Middle-earth works are debated here. Also discussed in this Forum are other Tolkien resources such as websites and societies.

Many topics have already been discussed before (although this forum is substantially smaller than others), and the received etiquette before posting a new topic is to run a search through old topics to see if the same issue has been discussed before.

For instance, if I wished to find topics about Karen Fonstad's maps, I might search for "Atlas Middle-earth", and be directed to the most relevant topics.

As another method, there is a complete Index of the Reference Materials Forum that can be browsed.

It is generally preferable to continue an existing thread than to post a new one. On the other hand, if your topic is only on a related issue, it may be better to start a new thread to avoid diverting another one too much. Use common sense and you won't go far wrong.

Enjoy reading and posting in the forum, and I hope to see you there!

Remember to search through old topics before posting a new thread.

Books by J.R.R. Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was a prolific writer, and much of what he has written has come to light over the years. Some of these listed works are out of print. Others are obscure and have little to offer fans of Middle-earth. Entries are listed by date of first publication. Works with their own designated Forums here at Minas Tirith will be red links to those forums. Other popular works that do not have their own forum will be in bold.

Books About J.R.R. Tolkien

There have been literally hundreds of books written about J.R.R. Tolkien, and more are published every day. Many of these listed are out of print, some were published privately, and some are in languages other than English. The most popular are in bold type. They are listed alphabetically by the last name of the author. Most entries list the British publisher, but those that I have added include the American publisher. Many have been re-released in new or edited forms. Although this should go without saying, those “works” regarding New Line Cinema’s Lord of the Rings movies are not listed.

Source: The Tolkien Society, originally compiled by Lester Simons, updated by Charles E. Noad and then with major editing and updating by myself.

A special thanks goes out to Andrew Armstrong from the Tolkien Society for help and permission with this list.

Christopher Tolkien

When dealing with almost any of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works, we must acknowledge the inestimable influence of his son Christopher. It is doubtful if we would have seen any of the Silmarillion or the History of Middle-earth if it was not for his involvement. In fact, his influence is so high as to lead some fans to cite him as the author of The Silmarillion. This is debatable (see The Silmarillion Forum sticky threads), but his part in this great Legendarium cannot be forgotten.

Christopher Tolkien was born 1924 as the third son of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. He was educated in Oxford and during WWII he served in the Royal Air Force as a pilot. After the war he read English at the Trinity College in Oxford and later he lectured at Oxford in Anglo-Saxon, Middle-English and Old Norse. From 1975 he devoted his time to editing his father's unpublished works. He now lives in southern France with his second wife, Baillie. Baillie was the editor of the book Father Christmas Letters.

Writings by Christopher (and Baillie)
Once again, the most popular works are in bold type. Also, The Silmarillion and The History of Middle-earth series have their own Forums here at Minas Tirith, and so are not dealt with in this Reference Material Forum.

As this is a sticky topic, I thought it would be of interest to repost this link that Thorin kindly found.

Index of 'Letters of JRR Tolkien'

This provides a quick way to cross-reference information found in The Letters of JRR Tolkien, also known as The Newbies' Bane... []

After some good-hearted arguing with Wetwang, I have decided to change this thread a bit. I did not see the use of having a sticky thread with some partial links to threads when we had a complete Index. So you will notice that the post with links to threads is gone.

However, the Bibliography here is worth keeping, I believe. As far as I know, it is the largest Tolkien bibliography anywhere. The UK Tolkien Society helped me with it, and it contains more books and more updated publishing information than anything that I (or they) have found anywhere else. Since the Bibliography is the best thing about this thread, I have decided to rename it as "Tolkien Bibliography" instead of a less-useful generic "Welcome to XYZ Forum."

If anyone has any information to add or change to the Bibliography, please feel free to post them or PM me.

Almost all the curious books I've got about Tolkien and his works were in your list exept for:

M. Schuchart, Tolkien. In de ban van zijn werk, (Utrecht, Antwerpen 1983)
M. Uyldert, Symboliek van In de Ban van de Ring, (Deventer 1974)

The first is a very small, thin booklet by the Dutch translator of the Hobbit and the LotR about JRRT.
The second one is a rather nauseating New Agy interpretation of the LotR. The writer reads a lot into it that isn't there: a lot of analogies, allusions to "higher thruths" and the like. Haven't read it all, 'cause I couldn't stand it longer. I just keep it as a curiosum []

Edit:
a third (Dutch) book not in the list:
Hexa 2: Beschouwingen over Tolkien en In de Ban van de Ring, (Antwerpen, [no year]),
which is some kind of three-monthly periodical about fantasy (and perhaps some New Agy things, as it is published by an 'alternative publisher', whatever that may be ...).

Some niggling remarks:

quote:
Tolkien. In de ban van zign werk. M. Schuchart. Utrecht, Antwerpen, 1983.
The publisher is Het Spectrum. And 'zign' should read 'zijn':
quote:
Earendilyon:
M. Schuchart, Tolkien. In de ban van zijn werk, (Utrecht, Antwerpen 1983)
.....
a very small, thin booklet by the Dutch translator of the Hobbit and the LotR about JRRT.

A similar thin booklet was published by the same publisher in 2001:

In de Ban van Tolkien. Ed. Martijn Adelmund. Het Spectrum, Utrecht, 2001.


quote:
Hexa 2: Beschouwingen over Tolkien en In de Ban van de Ring. Various. Antwerpen, periodical.
quote:
Earendilyon:
Hexa 2: Beschouwingen over Tolkien en In de Ban van de Ring, (Antwerpen, [no year])

The publisher is Exa, the year is indeed not given, but is most probably 1980. This one:
quote:
De Mijnen van Moria: essays over J.R.R. Tolkien. Johan Vanhecke et al. EXA, Uitgave, 1983.
is actually nr 13 of the same periodical, so the place of publication is likewise Antwerpen. 'Uitgave' is not a place name, it means 'publication' or 'edition'.


quote:
J.R.R. Tolkien 1892-1992. Johan Vanhecke. Stadsbibliothek en het Archief en Museum voor het Vlaamse Culturleven, Antwerp, 1992.
'Stadsbibliothek' should read 'Stadsbibliotheek', 'Culturleven' should read 'Cultuurleven'. English speakers have an uneradicable habit of singling Dutch double vowels. Likewise, in:
quote:
Hobbits in Holland: Leven en Werk van J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973). René van Rossenberg. Koninklijke Bibliothek, Den Haag, 1992.
'Bibliothek' should read 'Bibliotheek'. Also, René van Rossenberg should be alphabetised under R, instead of under V, which therefore also applies to:
quote:
Elrond's Holy Round Table: Essays on Tolkien, Sayers and the Arthur Saga. (Ed.) René van Rossenberg. Lembas Extra 1990, An Unquendor Publication, Tolkienwinkel, The Netherlands, 1990.

Motieven in Midden-aarde: Essays over Tolkien en fantasy. (Ed.) René van Rossenberg. Lembas-extra 1988, Een Unquendor uitgave, Tolkien Winkel, 1988.

, whereas I see that Sjoerd van der Weide is correctly alphabetised under W. I grant we make it very difficult for the poor foreigners, since Dutch surnames from the Netherlands (as Van Rossenberg and Van der Weide) are alphabetised disregarding the preposition 'van' and article 'de/der/den' or ''t', and reduce the capital V to lowercase when preceded by a first name or inititals, whereas if they are from Belgium (like Vanhecke, even when written as two words) they are alphabetised under V and keep their capital. []

Oh, and it should be 'Tolkienwinkel' both times, not 'Tolkien Winkel' (even though it actually says so in the publication itself - it's still a printing error). And thus the place of publication is Leiden.

And finally, something seems to have gone wrong here:
quote:
Tolkien and the Spirit of the Age. Ed. Renee Vink. Tolkien Genootschap "Unquendor", Leiden, 1987. Tolkien: Herdenkingsnummer van LEMBAS. Renee Vink et al. Uitgeverij Sirius en Siderius, Den Haag, 1983.
since these are two separate publications, although Lembas is the periodical of Tolkien Genootschap "Unquendor", the Dutch Tolkien Society.

Hi

There is a danish bibliography written by me:

"Quentasta - En dansk Tolkienbibliografi" by Kim H. Pierri

It deals with all Tolkienrelated books and articles (also newspaper articles) in danish.

Pippin, du skal også opgive forlag, udgivelsesår og udgivelsessted for at få den på listen.

Quentasta - En dansk Tolkienbibliografi. Kim H. Pierri. Forlaget Pegasi, Copenhagen, 2003.

Needs a correction, since Johan Vanhecke, the editor himself, in his recently published book, gives it as nr 14 of this periodical, Hexa.

Johan's book should also be added to the list, its description is:

In de Ban van de Hobbit; leven en werk van Tolkien. Johan Vanhecke. Houtekiet [an imprint of Standaard Uitgeverij], Antwerpen/Amsterdam, 2005.

Okay. All these non-English works confuse me to no end. Also the Society's rather unusual (to me, at least) method of listing works tends to throw me a curve ball at times. I followed their lead on the method, even though I'm more familiar with a different layout. Anyway, take another look to make sure I got everything right. Thanks again for all your help!

Aye well, you have managed most points admirably. But these still need correction:

1:
quote:
De Mijnen van Moria: essays over J.R.R. Tolkien. (#14 of Hexa 2: Beschouwingen over Tolkien en In de Ban van de Ring periodical.) Johan Vanhecke et al. EXA, Antwerpen, 1983.
should be:

De Mijnen van Moria: essays over J.R.R. Tolkien. (#14 of Hexa periodical.) Johan Vanhecke et al. EXA, Antwerpen, 1983.

since the name of the periodical is Hexa. The part "Beschouwingen over Tolkien en In de Ban van de Ring" is the title of #2 only of this periodical. So I think that one, namely:
quote:
Hexa 2: Beschouwingen over Tolkien en In de Ban van de Ring. Various. Antwerpen, periodical.
should rather be listed as:

Hexa 2: Beschouwingen over Tolkien en In de Ban van de Ring. (#2 of Hexa periodical.) Various. EXA, Antwerpen, [1980].

Incidentally, most other issues of that periodical also carried articles on Tolkien.

2:
quote:
Tolkien. In de ban van zijn werk. M. Schuchart. Het Spectrum, Antwerpen, 1983.
should be:

Tolkien. In de ban van zijn werk. M. Schuchart. Het Spectrum, Utrecht/Antwerpen, 1983.

You might also consider using consistently either the Dutch version 'Antwerpen' or the English 'Antwerp' (which occurs in at least one other listing).

3:
quote:
Hobbits in Holland: Leven en Werk van J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973). René van Rossenberg. Koninklijke Bibliotheek, Den Haag, 1992.
while totally correct, should be under R for 'Rossenberg' rather than under V for 'van'. You did move the other two, but forgot this one.

Thank you very much for your trouble!

I am in too great doubt to rule. To prepare or to let be? To prepare for war, which is yet only guessed: train craftsmen and tillers in the midst of peace for bloodspilling and battle: put iron in the hands of greedy captains who will love only conquest, and count the slain as their glory? Will they say to Eru: At least your enemies were amongst them? Or to fold hands, while friends die unjustly: let men live in blind peace, until the ravisher is at the gate? What then will they do: match naked hands against iron and die in vain, or flee leaving the cries of women behind them? Will they say to Eru: At least I spilled no blood?
'When either way may lead to evil, of what worth is choice? Let the Valar rule under Eru!
