Tolkien Gateway


Greetings ye all!

I'm a French Tolkien enthusiast, interested in astronomy, botany, geography, mythology and linguistics. I might also be a dragon. No one can be sure on the Internet.

Quick links (mostly as a reminder, on my TODO list...) —




Mythology and miscellaneous


  1. Handwritten annotations provided by J.R.R. Tolkien to Pauline Baynes on a copy of the published map, as later found loose in her own copy of the books, see The Guardian, 23 October 2015, "Tolkien's annotated map of Middle-earth discovered inside copy of Lord of the Rings". An analysis of the map may also be found in "Découverte d'une carte de la Terre du Milieu annotée par Tolkien pour Pauline Baynes" (in French, with deciphered annotations also being provided in English). Tolkien's annotations are also confirmed by Blackwell Rare Books on November 9, 2015 (twitter). Mrs Baynes used Tolkien's indications for her illustrated poster map.
