37 days to the publication of "The Proverbs of Middle Earth"

In Unfinished Tales, we are told that Saruman was ‘so far fallen that he believed all others of the Council had each their deep and far-reaching policies for their own enhancement’.  In Gandalf, for example, he sees a rival with the same priorities that motivate him, whose ambitions will only be satisfied by ‘the Keys of Barad-dûr… the crowns of seven kings, and the rods of the Five Wizards’.  Gandalf simply laughs at this, saying ‘I fear I am beyond your comprehension.’
