Shapingofmiddleearth

The Shaping of Middle-earth is the fourth volume of Christopher Tolkien's 13-volume series The History of Middle-earth, in which he analyzes the unpublished manuscripts of his father J. R. R. Tolkien. It was published in 1986.

In it the gradual transition from the "primitive" legendaria of The Book of Lost Tales to what would become The Silmarillion is described, and it contains a text which could be seen as the first "Silmarillion": the "Sketch of the Mythology".

Three very interesting other parts are the Ambarkanta or "Shape of the World", a collection of maps and diagrams of the world described by Tolkien; and the Annals of Valinor and Beleriand, chronological works which started out as timelines but gradually turned into full narrative.
