A Map of Middle-earth
Based on the map of Middle-earth first published in 1954, the poster-map (created in 1969) was a collaboration between Pauline Baynes and J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien corrected a few errors on the original map,[source?] and supplied some additional place names and notes on nomenclature.
"New" locations include: Dorwinion, Eryn Vorn, Edhellond, Andrast, Drúwaith Iaur, Undeeps, the towns Framsburg, Edhellond, Lond Daer and the rivers Glanduin and Swanfleet (labelled as a river). Other additions include wooded areas in Eryn Vorn, Enedhwaith and around the river Isen, not indicated as such in earlier maps.
At least 12 impressions of the trade edition poster-map (ISBN 0049120026) were issued:
- 1st impression 1970
- 6th impression 1974
- 7th impression 1974
- 8th impression 1975
- 12th impression 1986 (Unwin Books; printed by Henry Stone & Son (Printers), Banbury)
After the 7th impression, but not later than the 12th impression, a green border 17 mm high was inserted between the top and bottom edges of the map and the illustrated borders.
