A Chronological Bibliography of Books About Tolkien
Compiled by Åke Bertenstam

Introduction

The bibliography below is an attempt to list the books that have been published treating Tolkien, be they biographies, criticism, bibliographies, dictionaries, concordances, quiz books or any other book about Tolkien and his writings. Some categories are excluded, however. Works of fiction, based on Tolkienian events or characters are excluded as well as musical, theatrical or any other adaption of Tolkien's writings. This also goes for game books with a basis in Tolkien's writings.

Books about adaptions have due to Peter Jackson's films based on The Lord of the Rings become somewhat of a problem as some of these also treat Tolkien. In a sort of compromise between keeping them in or leaving them out I have noted them as an addendum to the bibliography proper under the heading Media related books. This list is restricted to filmed adaptions and does not list other books such as books about artists inspired by Tolkien, e.g. those about the Brothers Hildebrand.

Books are listed chronologically and alphabetically arranged within each year. At the end of the list there is a section on forthcoming books. The information in this section is by nature tentative and subject to change.

Apart from original editions of books I also list revised versions. As such editions are placed under the year they were published the same book might thus appear in several places in the list. Links are provided to the different editions.

I have also attempted to list reissues of books. In this case they appear as entries in the commentary to the original edition of the book in question and not as seperate records. Neither are they linked from the year of reissue unless the reissue appears under a new title or in a few cases where I am uncertain whether it is a case of a reissue or a revised edition.

This bibliography, however, does not list translations of books about Tolkien. It is possible that I might make a separate list of such books in the future.

The following categories of books are listed.

I have for practical reasons excluded encyclopedias with essays on Tolkien, including literary encyclopedias.

It must be emphasized that the following list only contains published books. Thus no doctoral or masters thesis are included, except in the few cases when they have seen a commercial publisher. It is possible that I might make a separate list for thesis in the future.

There is no minimum number number of pages that a chapbook must contain to be listed below. I have also included privately published books.

Thanks are due to all that have made suggestions for additions and corrections this list since it was originally published. Andrew Wells and Beregond, Anders Stenstrlöm. have been of especial help.

Lastly must noted that I plan to make two companion pages to this one. One is this list arranged in another fashion, listing the books according to subject, another lists the articles that appears in the various collections listed below.

    ISBN 3-421--05668-4 (hbk): 19.90€
    Despite the title it is uncertain whether Tolkien is treated to the extent to warrant inclusion in the present list. According to a description of the book in the amazon.de database Gaschke treats the 100 best children's books in her view in the present study.

  737. Pearce, Joseph: Literary Converts: Spiritual Inspiration in an Age of Unbelief. London: HarperCollinsReligious, 1999. xii, 452 pp. 25 cm
    ISBN 0-00-628111-7
    There are quotations from the book jacket in the record of the MARCQAT (Marquette Library database, record no. 41466351) which indicates that Tolkien is treated in the book: "The twentieth century has been marked both by belief and unbelief. While church attendance has declined, the lives of many of the most salient figures of our times have been influenced and inspired by Christianity." "Literary Converts takes us on a journey into the deepest beliefs of some of the greatest writers in the English language: Oscar Wilde, Evelyn Waugh, C. S. Lewis, Malcolm Muggeridge, Graham Greene, Edith Sitwell, Siegfried Sassoon, Hilaire Belloc, G. K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, T. S. Eliot and J. R. R. Tolkien. The role of George Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells in intensifying the religious debate despite not being converts themselves is also considered." The same record also gives a complete listing of the chapter titles. This listing however gives no indication at all that Tolkien is treated in the book. As I have not seen it myself I cannot judge whether or not Tolkien is treated to the extent to warrant inclusion in the present list.

    ISBN 1-900796-56-2 (pbk): £5.99 (2002)
    This book deals with the subjects labyrinths, underground areas and rites & ceremonies in literature. According to the bibliotek.dk database the book treats the following authors: J.L. Borges, E. Sábato, Owen, Hesse, Milton and Tolkien. I don't know if Tolkien is treated to the extent that this book warrants inclusion in the present bibliography.
