Summary

This image was drawn by J.R.R. Tolkien and was done at Lyme Regis in Dorset in 1928. The picture shows Minas Tirith, the watchtower of Finrod Felagund, on the island of Tol Sirion, which after its capture by Sauron was named Tol-in-Gaurhoth, the Isle of Werewolves. To the left are Ered Wethrin, the Mountains of Shadow, and to the right the western edge of Dorthonion (Taur-nu-Fuin); beyond lies the wide plain of Ard-galen, called after its devastation Anfauglith, and on the far northern horizon is the line of Ered Engrin, the Iron Mountains, with smoke hanging over Thangorodrim.
