The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, XIV: The Hoard

The Hoard is a poem concerning the theme of greed. In the preface it is written that this poem was written in the Hobbits' Red Book and it depended 'on the lore of Rivendell, Elvish and Númenórean, concerning the heroic days at the end of the First Age". It is a revision of an earlier version called  Iúmonna Gold Galdre Bewunden, published in 1923.

I: The Book of Lost Tales part 1, X: GILFANON’S TALE: THE TRAVAIL OF THE NOLDOLI AND THE COMING OF MANKIND

This is the final chapter in the Book of Lost Tales part 1. This chapter looks a bit different than the earlier chapters, because it is not told as extensively as tales told by characters. A short passage is a tale told by Gilfanon (about the Eldar dwelling in Palinsor and how Nuin finds the sleeping men). The rest (The Awakening of Men and The History of the Exiled Gnomes) are written as outlines consisting of very abbreviated concepts of what events took place.
