In The Peoples of Middle-earth, Section VII "The Heirs of Elendil", it was explained that three manuscripts existed in the textual history of this section. Manuscript A contained the Southern Line of Gondor, and appeared to be the first stage of composition. Manuscript B added the Northern Line, and began as a fair copy of A for the Southern line but became heavily emended. Manuscript B led to Manuscript C, a fine copy (but with later emendations), which led to a final typescript D. In the earlier Manuscripts A and B, Eärendil lived from T.A. 40 to 316 instead of T.A. 48 to 324.[1]
