DKK 140,00

A bestiary is a book about beasts. In the Middle Ages, when the bestiary was most popular, it was the equivalent of an encyclopeia of natural history, revealing fabulous beasts and monsters to the curious. ” A Tolkien Bestiary” is a bestiary in the broadest sense of the word; it includes not only fantastical beasts and monsters but also races, nations, deities and flora: In Tolkien’s terms, all the “kelvar” and “olvar”. It is a comprehensive encyclopedia that describes, illustrates and historically delineates all his creations.
