“The Lord of the Rings” is the greatest trilogy, and it immortalized the name of its creator.

Entitled Kirith Ungol~J.R.R Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator. Early Sketches.
Text reads on the Tower of Kirith Ungol:
And in that dreadful light Sam stood aghast; for now he could see the Tower of Kirith Ungol in all its strength. The horn that those could see who came up the pass from the west was but its topmost turret. Its eastern face stood up in four great tiers from a shelf in the mountain wall some 500 feet below. Its back was to the great cliff behind, and it was built in four pointed bastions of cunning masonry, with sides facing north-east and south-east, one above the other, diminishing as they went up, while about the lowest tier was a battlemented wall enclosing a narrow courtyard. Its gate open(ed) on the SE into a broad road. The wall at the outward(?)…was upon the brink of a precipice.

The text reads:
Look! The road opened out now: it still went on up, but no longer sheerly. Beyond and ahead there was an ominous glare in the sky, and like a great notch in the mountainshelo wall a cleft was outlined against it. On their right the wall of rock fell away and the road widened till it had no brink. Looking down Frodo saw nothing but the vast darkness of the great ravine which was the head of Morghul dale. Down in it’s depths was the faint glimmer of the wraith-road that that led over the Morghul pass from the city. On their left sharp jagged pinnacles stood up like towers carved by the biting years, and between them were many dark crevices and clefts. But high on the left side of the cleft to which their road lead (Kirith Ungol) was a small black tower, and in it a window showed a red light.
