I was browsing through Geek news and found an awesome story.

Someone found a map of Middle Earth that was annotated by J.R.R. Tolkien himself.

They are currently selling this piece for £60,000 ($92,118).

Here is a link for photos and to the article itself.

P.S. I hope that this is the appropriate forum for this thread.

Yes! I read that article.. Or another one about the map.

It is nuts how much they are selling it for! It is pretty cool, though. Too bad it's so pricey. ;)

The close ups show the hand written notes. Those are pretty cool too!

The whole thing is really neat.
