A Chronological Bibliography of the Writings of J.R.R. Tolkien
compiled by Åke Bertenstam




The aim of the chronological bibliography given below is to give a complete record of Professor J.R.R. Tolkien's published writings: books, contributions to books, and contributions to periodicals. Some exceptions have had to be made to this stated intent, mainly for practical reasons. Thus the categories given below have been excluded.

Lastly it might be noted that, even if exact publishing dates for the vast majority of the publications listed below can be ascertained (largely through information taken from Hammond 1993), I have preferred to give the works in alphabetical order within each year rather than in chronological order.



Introductory note to the 8th edition (2014)

After a hiatus of some eleven years this bibliography has finally seen a much needed and long overdue update. Apart for adding some 25 new entries for the period 2004-2014 numerous old entries have been revised, especially those concerned with the new edition from 2014 of The Adventures of Tom Bombadil.

Among the books added to this edition is The Art of The Hobbit (edited by Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull). This has been listed as it contains reproductions of illustrations not included in Pictures or Wayne Hammond & Christina Scull: J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist & Illustrator.

It should perhaps also be noted that I have postponed adding some books for further consideration. These include books with quotes from unpublished academic writings by Tolkien such as The Keys of Middle-earth by Stuart D. Lee and Elizabeth Solopova.

Finally it might be noted that even if I have added the 2005 edition of Tom Shippey's The Road to Middle-earth to the list of sources no page references for this edition have so far been given to the reprints of poems from Songs for the Philologists.

A few corrections of this document were made on 29th December 2014, among them giving the correct page information for "Tha Eadigan Saelidan" in A Northern Venture.

A revised version is published in The Lord of the Rings, Book One, Chapter 9 and as "The Man in the Moon Came Down Too Soon" in The Adventures of Tom Bombadil.
    The subtitle refers to the fact that the poem is based on a (seemingly) nonsensical nursery rhyme, which Tolkien has "explained" by putting its disjointed lines into a context:

      Hey diddle diddle
      The cat and the fiddle
      The cow jumped over the moon
      The little dog laughed to see such sport
      And the dish ran away with the spoon.
