The second of a two-book set that contains the early myths and
legends which led to the writing of Tolkien's epic tale of war, The
Silmarillion. This second part of The Book of Lost Tales includes
the tale of Beren and Luthien, Turin and the Dragon, and the only
full narratives of the Necklace of the Dwarves and the Fall of
Gondolin, itself the finest and most exciting depiction of a battle
that Tolkien ever wrote. Each tale is followed by a commentary in
the form of a short essay, together with texts of associated poems,
and contains extensive information on names and vocabulary in the
earliest Elvish languages. This series of fascinating books has now
been repackaged to complement the distinctive and classic style of
the `black cover' A-format paperbacks of The Hobbit, The Lord of
the Rings, The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.
