Pauline Baynes - A Map of Middle-earth (color) 2.jpg

A Map of Middle-earth (name on map), also known as the Pauline Baynes Map, is a poster-map of Northwestern Middle-earth published in 1970 by Allen & Unwin.[1]

Based on the map of Middle-earth first published in 1954, the poster-map (created in 1969) was a collaboration between Pauline Baynes and J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien corrected a few errors on the original map, and supplied some additional place names and notes on nomenclature.[2][1]

Ballantine Books reproduced the map on the box of a set of a three-volume edition of The Lord of the Rings (first printing 1970).[3]
