Iain Lowson e.a., World of the Rings.

The unauthorised guide to the world of J.R.R. Tolkien.
Richmond, 2002. 1st edition. Paperback. Illustrated. "The perfect beginners guide." World of the Rings is the perfect beginner's guide to the world of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, now the subject of a major trilogy of motion pictures. For those new to Tolkien's Middle-earth, and for those returning to the magical world of Hobbits, Wizards, Elves, Ents, and Orcs, the authors have prepared a simple-to-use guide through the maze of Tolkien's many books. The book also explains the multiple layers of Middle-earth's legend and history that make up the background of The Lord of the Rings. World of the Rings is the perfect handbook for those new to Tolkien, as well as those already captured by the magic of Middle-earth.*
