Translations from the Elvish
MakerBilbo Baggins
AppearanceThree volumes

Translations from the Elvish was a work, written in three volumes by Bilbo Baggins between T.A. 3001 and 3019, during his stay in Rivendell. They formed a substantial part of the Red Book of Westmarch, but were omitted from other versions. They were preserved only in the Thain's Book and its copies.[1]

Obviously it included such works as the Ainulindalë and the Valaquenta.[2]
