Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth

“Manuscript drafts and maps in Tolkien’s own hand show how the characters and the narrative developed,” says John McQuillen, associate curator at the Morgan Library & Museum, about the “Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth” exhibit. This is the largest collection ever assembled of J. R. R. Tolkien’s original manuscripts, drawings, and illustrated maps, which inspired and were created alongside many of his most famous works.
