The Númenórë map

The Númenórë map, appearing in the Unfinished Tales, depicts the island of Númenor.[1]

The map is a redrawing by Christopher Tolkien from what probably was the only sketch of Númenor made by J.R.R. Tolkien.[2]

The unpublished sketch-map of Númenor also includes the haven of Almaida, which apparently is not mentioned elsewhere in the legendarium.[2]
