The Númenórë map

The Númenórë map, appearing in the Unfinished Tales, depicts the island of Númenor.

The map is a redrawing by Christopher Tolkien from what probably was the only sketch of Númenor made by J.R.R. Tolkien.[1]

The unpublished sketch-map of Númenor also includes the haven of Almaida, which apparently is not mentioned elsewhere in the the legendarium.[1]
