Wired posted eight of J.R.R Tolkien's earliest drawings of Middle Earth. Very nice to see things take shape visually:

Thank you so much for posting these.  It brings back fond memories of my trip to the Bodleian when I had four hours to read these maps and other drawings.  It was an exciting day for me, and my beloved was so patient waiting at the pub while I read.  Time flew; I made a few notes and sketches; and the whole adventure was something of such good times.  These drawings bring back that day.
