"Then more than any kind of Men
he appeared, and seemed rather an Elf
-lord from the Isles of the West
as he appeared to Arwen
from Appendix A I (v) to The Lord of the RingsThe Tale of Aragorn and Arwen
An apparent reference to the dwellings of the Eldar in the Bay of Eldamar, and especially the great island of Tol Eressëa where the Elves of Middle-earth dwelt after they passed into the West. The reference to 'Isles' in the plural is curious, but seems to imply that there were other islands in the Bay inhabited by the Elves, a fact that is not mentioned elsewhere.
