This is a beautiful set. The detail is excellent. Full color makes them that much more attractive. The book that comes with the maps giving details of the places on the maps is a real plus. The problem is you can buy Maps of Middle Earth by Karen Wynn Fonstad, having many more maps, and The Complete Guide to Middle Earth with infinitely more entries and better details for a combined price these days that is comparable to the price of this set. This sets main selling point is it is a visual feast. I have read the Trilogy several times. I own the DVDs of the movies. If you, or the person you are buying for, liked the movies better or never read the books, buy this set. If you read the books buy the combination of books I mentioned above.

Very attractive set of maps of Tolkien's Middle Earth

Created: 04/05/07
As a long-time Tolkien reader, I have always enjoyed the maps that accompanied the books. They have always been useful in helping to make visualization of Middle Earth in my mind more complete, more "real". When I saw this set being auctioned on eBay, I felt this might give me an opportunity to get an even more detailed version of these maps. The colorful presentation and bigger scale of these maps gives me a better perspective of the time and distances involved for the characters making their treks across this world as described in the books. I guess one could say that I can more easily lose myself in the adventures. And the sturdy case should keep them safe and preserved for years to come.

This is the best surprise/gift I have had in years.

Created: 15/08/10
I had not really looked at the picture or description but I have wanted more maps than I had and these turned out to be almost exactly what was missing in my collection as well as the volume of discussion and explanation was above and beyond what one would have expected. I have never purchased from this seller before and usually have to be very care of my sources and now I have a new seller I never need worry about. Thank you.
