The Fall of Gondlin. HarC, 2018

 

HarperCollins, 2018. 1st edition. Hardback. Illustrated by Alan Lee.*

In the Tale of The Fall of Gondolin are two of the greatest powers in the world. There is Morgoth of the uttermost evil, unseen in this story but ruling over a vast military power from his fortress of Angband. Deeply opposed to Morgoth is Ulmo, second in might only to Manwë, chief of the Valar.

Central to this enmity of the gods is the city of Gondolin, beautiful but undiscoverable. It was built and peopled by Noldorin Elves who, when they dwelt in Valinor, the land of the gods, rebelled against their rule and fled to Middle-earth. Turgon King of Gondolin is hated and feared above all his enemies by Morgoth, who seeks in vain to discover the marvellously hidden city, while the gods in Valinor in heated debate largely refuse to intervene in support of Ulmo's desires and designs.

Into this world comes Tuor, cousin of Túrin, the instrument of Ulmo's designs. Guided unseen by him Tuor sets out from the land of his birth on the fearful journey to Gondolin, and in one of the most arresting moments in the history of Middle-earth the sea-god himself appears to him, rising out of the ocean in the midst of a storm. In Gondolin he becomes great; he is wedded to Idril, Turgon's daughter, and their son is Eärendel, whose birth and profound importance in days to come is foreseen by Ulmo.

At last comes the terrible ending. Morgoth learns through an act of supreme treachery all that he needs to mount a devastating attack on the city, with Balrogs and dragons and numberless Orcs. After a minutely observed account of the fall of Gondolin, the tale ends with the escape of Tuor and Idril, with the child Eärendel, looking back from a cleft in the mountains as they flee southward, at the blazing wreckage of their city. They were journeying into a new story, the Tale of Eärendel, which Tolkien never wrote, but which is sketched out in this book from other sources.

Following his presentation of Beren and Lúthien Christopher Tolkien has used the same 'history in sequence' mode in the writing of this edition of The Fall of Gondolin. In the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, it was ‘the first real story of this imaginary world’ and, together with Beren and Lúthien and The Children of Húrin, he regarded it as one of the three 'Great Tales' of the Elder Days.*

The Hobbit. A&U, 1942 (rebound) 29/8

George Allen & Uwin, 1942. A rare copy of the war time edition of The Hobbit, with just 1500 copies printed. This is an ex-library copy, from the Public Library of Warwich (as indicated with a small stamp on a flyleaf).

Both maps are now endpapers, while originally half of the maps were glued to the boards. Title page is missing. Illustrated by Tolkien in b&w and with a colour frontispiece ("The Hill: Hobbiton-across-the-water"). A nice copy of a rare edition.*

The book has been rebound in green leather with on spine and boards Tolkien's designs in gold leaf. Also the edge of the book is gilded.

Helm Ringwraith of Forod. Weta2724 (10/8)

 

Summoned from beyond the grave by their master's will, the Ringwraiths rose to challenge the White Council in the tangled ruins of Dol Guldur. Spectral, formless beings, the nine Wraiths could not be seen by mortal eyes lest they robed themselves to walk among the living. The Elves and Istari of the White Council perceived beyond the limits of mortal sight, and to them the Nazgûl appeared as warriors, clad for battle in black mail and plate.

Though the Wraiths had previously been portrayed as pale kings in 'Ring vision,' the film's director wanted them to assume new forms, as if spiritually armoured for battle.

Each 1:4 scale Helm is made from polystone and comes in an edition of just 750.

Product Size: 6 x 20 x 8 cm*

Helm Prince Théodred. Weta2705

 

Son and heir of the King of Rohan, Théodred was as fine a horseman as any of his people, riding with his parents before he could walk. By manhood he was appointed Second Marshall of the Mark. Based at the Hornburg, he and his Éored patrolled the western reaches of Rohan where the River Isen curled a winding course toward the sea.

At the shallow Fords of the Isen Théodred's company was set upon by Orcs and the prince himself was cut down. Though senseless and left for dead in the river, Théodred still drew breath and was rescued by his cousin Éomer, who bore him to his father in Edoras.

Yet even in his home the prince was not safe, for while he lay in a swoon a cruel poison was administered by the King's treacherous servant, Wormtongue. Théodred was buried with honour in his armour, sword upon his breast and etched helm of brass and steel at his feet, in the barrows before the citadel. There he would join his forefathers to sleep beneath the delicate blooms of the simbelmynë until the end of days.

Each 1:4 scale Helm is made from polystone and comes in an edition of just 750.*

Éomer on Firefoot 1/6 scale

 

Weta 2638. Nephew of ailing King Théoden of Rohan and captain of the Mark, Éomer was as loyal to his liege as the truest Rohirrim, but for questioning the orders of Gríma Wormtongue, the horse lord was banished. Taking his Éored, he rode from Edoras to make private war upon the Orcs that had invaded their realm, even as Théoden turned a blind eye.

In truth the fallen Wizard Saruman had gained influence over Rohan's king by sorcery. Upon the return of Gandalf Théoden was freed of Saruman's grip, but not before much of his country had been usurped or put to flame. As Saruman's legions marched upon them, the Rohirrim fled to the fortress of Helm's Deep to mount a last stand against the Wizard's hordes. Outnumbered and outmatched, the few defenders held as long as they could, but defeat loomed.

Then suddenly, as the first rays of sunlight crested the rise to the east, a great host of riders appeared, their spears gleaming in the radiance of the dawn. Led by Éomer upon his brave horse Firefoot, the Riders of Rohan streamed headlong down the scree slope, voices united in a mighty yell and swords held aloft. Like the coming of the tide they swept over the army of Isengard, saving their king, his people, and their realm.

Eomer is the latest addition to Weta Workshop's high-quality 1:6 scale Middle-earth line; a line that is made by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies.

Haldir. 1/6 scale

 

Weta 2113. Leading the Galadhrim was the Silvan Elf Haldir, march warden of Lórien and a great warrior, as skilled with sword as he was with bow. Buying time for the retreating Rohirrim at great cost, Haldir and his courageous Elves defended the Deeping Wall even as Saruman's Uruk-hai breached and swarmed over them. Haldir himself stood upon the top of the wall, resisting an endless river of bloodthirsty Uruks as he covered Aragorn's withdrawal to the Keep, resolute and fearless to the very end.
