No, the best you can do is the portion shown in for the Second Age and then extrapolate the changes shown in greater detail for different areas in the Third Age, all as shown in the late Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-earth, revised edition. The 210 pages of this atlas is well worth the price as it isn't like some of those foldout maps of Third Age Middle-earth that only cover the area of LotR. It also includes info from The Silmarillion, UT, and the first nine volumes of H.O.M.E. as well as very detailed maps covering The Hobbit and LotR.

oooh this is my subject, although i can not tell you of the map of arda in the third age only in the first, but what Grondy said is true. Recently ive been searching for various books on the maps of ME or anything Tolkien related, and low and behold, i found an amazing book that had big posters of all the main maps of Tolkien's complicated world.

They are beautifully drawn by John Howe, i have studied them very carefully, i have gained much knowledge from them, especially the map of Beleriand, my favourite of them all. They are all drawn ot the time period of the book that they are based on, ME is at the end of the third age. Beleriand is the time of the Silmarillion, there is even a map of Rhovanion (Mirkwood Forest) at the time of Bilbo Baggins's journey to The Lonely Mountain and there are loads more. I suppose you can call the maps 'my subject' so to speak. Which i am glad i have found.

Does anyone else have any specialised books on the maps??? id be very glad to know which ones you have and then find for myself

Yes I have the Atlas of Tolkien's middle-earth (thanks grondmaster) I was just after something on the internet.

Even harder - do you know of a map of Arda on the internet before the collapse of the Pillars of light? That map is in the atlas but I cannot find it on the internet.

Hi, am coming late to this thread but David Day's 'A Tolkien Bestiary' features a complete map of Arda showing all the places featured in the Silmarrillion, the Hobbit and LOTR. It shows where the Lamps of the Valar were placed, Tol Eressa, Uymno, Angband and Numenor.

:orcsad: Maybe I mispoke, maybe it was someone else's website and now I can't find the thread with the link to it. It had many maps, including First Age maps.
