Parma Endorion: Essays on Middle-earth by Michael Martinez (edited by Matt Tinaglia) is a freely available eBook containing a complete survey to the places, locations, history and peoples of Arda, from the beginning of days until the Lord of the Rings and the Fourth Age.

It also contains some insight into J.R.R. Tolkien's world and Martinez' past essays like for example the similarities (or lack thereof) between the Rohirrim and Anglo-Saxons, or how a Middle-earth themed wedding should be planned.

It contains a few illustrations by Anke Eißmann.
