Reprints extracts from a letter from Rhona Beare to Parma Eldalamberon that reports brief notes made on a draft version of Thror's Map. These notes consist of the phrase "Five feet high the door and three may walk abreast" in Noldorin and Old English. Rhona Beare copied the notes from the map when it was on display in an exhibition of Cartographic Curiosities at The British Museum.

See page 7.

The draft version of Thror's Map can be seen in J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator (1995) – see figure 85.

The image opposite is from the 2007 reprint.
