I would add these four items:
  • J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography - Humphrey Carpenter
  • The Road to Middle-earth: Revised and Expanded Edition - Tom Shippey
  • J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century - Tom Shippey
  • J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator - Wayne G. Hammond, Christina Scull, and J.R.R. Tolkien

And for the TRUE fans of Tolkien, particularly those who enjoy his poetry:
  • The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and Other Verses from the Red Book - J.R.R. Tolkien (author), Pauline Baynes (illustrator)

Silmarillion by illustrated by Ted Nasmith

The Silmarillion...illustrated by Ted Nasmith.. is beautiful and highly recommended as an essential addition to a Tolkien library.

I apologize for replying to a thread that hasn't been posted in for some time, but this appeared to be the most appropriate place to ask.

Is there a significant difference between the first and second editions of The Silmarillion as illustrated by Ted Nasmith?

I would add the Annotated Hobbit (any version of it and there are more than one that I know off) and Roverandom (although not my favorite work by him, he still wrote it.)

There are more illustrations in the second edition; Nasmith painted some new ones just for it.
