Есть такой интересный вид путешествий — типа силой воображения. Удивительное явление, если вдуматься. Во внутреннем нашем пространстве физические законы произвольны и к исполнению не обязательны, поэтому совершенно параллельно, далеко или близко находится цель путешествия, и существует ли она вообще — как вот в рассматриваемом ниже случае. С одной стороны, никакого Средиземья как бы нету, а с другой — как это нет, когда имеются подробные его атласы и карты, словари плюс высокобюджетные документальные съемки? Дурдом, короче.

Karen Wynn Fonstad, «The Atlas of Middle-Earth»

Houghton Mifflin | 1992 Year | PDF | 79,9 Mb | 227 Pages

The publishing world is full of Tolkien spinoff products, some trivial and ephemeral--but some, like this thoroughly researched atlas, are genuinely classy. Karen Wynn Fonstad is a qualified geographer and cartographer who first mapped Middle-Earth in 1981 and has since added much new detail based on those endless volumes of drafts, abandoned passages, alternative versions, and laundry lists published since Tolkien's death. She fills in gaps and details in the familiar Third Age maps from The “Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings”, goes back in time to map Middle-Earth's First and Second Ages, and reconstructs the route and timescale of every important journey in the stories. There are local maps of key places like the Mines of Moria, Lothlorien, Isengard, Minas Tirth, the Tower of Cirith Ungol, and the volcanic Mount Doom. War maps cover the saga's notable battles, up to the hopeless last stand at Mordor gate and the tiny later skirmish known in Shire records as the Battle of Bywater. Thematic maps show Middle-Earth's distribution of climate, geological features, vegetation, people, and (most importantly to Tolkien) languages... It's all done tremendously seriously and would make a fine gift for enthusiastic Tolkien fans, except that they'll have bought it already.
