stamp of approval [In reply to] Can't Post

In any event the maps for The Lord of the Rings were ultimately approved for publication by Tolkien himself, and in some cases he chose to accept the maps as published and alter his own text to better agree with something on a map.

I hold the map by Pauline Baynes to be Tolkien-approved as well, as JRRT himself contributed to its making.

The Silmarillion scenario is different obviously. And just to note it here: Christopher Tolkien thought the area of the far north of Beleriand was too problematic to include in The Silmarillion, although KW Fonstad's Atlas 'gives it a shot' anyway.
