Elfinesse

The lands of the Elves

An early and rare equivalent of the Elvish word Eldamar, referring to the lands occupied by the Elves. It was ultimately abandoned by Tolkien in favour of the form Elvenesse, though it does survive in a single historical usage in Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth.
