So, I was talking to Em yesterday and she thanked me for putting that map of the Shire from my book in the last LotR post, because I guess her book doesn’t have it. That makes me sad to learn that not all of the books are created equally.
I then mentioned that my older editions have a fold-out map, and both Kate and Em said they hadn’t seen it. This makes me very sad.
I scanned my fold-out map (had to do it in sections and piece it together because it’s the equivalent of six pages) and am adding it here as a reference for you all.
I know the left side looks a little wonky, but the book kind of got in the way of the scanner. Sorry about that. It’s all still pretty legible, though.
Hope this helps those of you who are interested in seeing where, exactly, everything takes place while you’re reading.
Note: I do not own this image – it was drawn by Christopher Tolkien for his father – I just scanned it from my book after not being able to find a large version of it online.
