About the Author

Robert Foster was Assistant Professor of English at Rutgers College, New Jersey. Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1949, he received his MA and PhD in English and Medieval Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. He was a consultant to the Tolkien Society of America and his Guide to Middle-earth, originally published in 1971, resulted from his work tracing the etymology of names used in the works of J. R. R. Tolkien.

J R R Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into over 30 languages and have sold many millions of copies world wide.ArtistTed Nasmith has contributed to a range of illustrated works including The Tolkien Calendar, Realms of Tolkien and Tolkien’s World.


‘Middle-earth is the country of J.R.R. Tolkien’s tales – the territory of Sauron, Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and Sam Gamgee – whose legends, history, geography and inhabitants combine to make a unique fictional world. This Guide is a comprehensive reference work to every name and event in Tolkien’s books, from The Hobbit to The Silmarillion.’
Daily Telegraph ‘Mr Robert Foster’s Complete Guide to Middle-earth supplies, as I have found through frequent use, an admirable work of reference.’
