"there are Tolkien's latest thoughts, his best thoughts, and his published thoughts and these are not necessarily the same." — Tolkien's Legendarium
This article is non-canon.

The early versions of the Legendarium included the notion of a land in the uttermost east of Arda.

In the Ambarkanta, the Eastern Land, known to the Elves of Aman as the Land of the Sun[1] or the Burnt Land of the Sun[2], was a land east of Middle-earth where the Sun rose at dawn.

Little was known of its geography. There was a great, curve-shaped mountain range called the Wall of the Sun, that corresponded symmetrically to the Pelóri Mountains of Aman.[1][3].

Other versions of the legendarium

In the Book of Lost Tales, the easternmost land of Arda is called Oronto ("East" in Qenya[4]),[5]
