The Peoples of Middle-earth

"The Peoples of Middle-earth" (1996) is the 12th and final volume of "The History of Middle-earth", edited by Christopher Tolkien from the unpublished manuscripts of his father J. R. R. Tolkien. Contents:
* The development of the Appendices to "The Lord of the Rings" as well as the development of the "Akallabêth".
* Some essays on various races of Middle-earth such as "The Shibboleth of Fëanor".
* "The New Shadow" - An incomplete sequel (approximately 30 pages) to "The Lord of the Rings" that Tolkien quickly abandoned, set in the time of Eldarion, Aragorn's son.
* "Tal-Elmar" - An incomplete story of Númenórean colonization of Middle-earth told from the point of view of the Wild Men. The protagonist, Tal-Elmar, is one of the ancient inhabitants of the lands of Gondor, and is partly descended from Númenórean settlers.

Some characters (including Anairë, the wife of Fingolfin) only appear here. So too do a few other works that did not fit anywhere else.
