    Edited to make the clue accurate (sorry if I confused anyone).
    Didn't Tom Bombadil refer to himself as "First" and "fatherless"?

    Indeed he did, but unfortunately that is not the correct answer.

    The Book of Lost Tales was the first work of imaginative literature that JRRT worked on.

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    Wrong and wrong.

    If it is of any help, the answer refers to a fairly esoteric peice of Tolkien trivia, and Boraxxe's first answer has been closest of all those given.

    Sorry, wrong again.

    Please, the clue is not arbitrary. There are no doubt hundreds, if not thousands of first x's for any given x in Tolkien's works; and I am not making you play a guessing game amongst all those hundreds of things. The answer (well the two answers) when found will also be found to fit the clue exactly, and uniquely (except for the other correct answer).

    Tolkien was the first to create a true English mythology?

    Your third try is so very close, though not correct. As an added clue, the language is correct, but it is not Minyar either.

    Ok, cancel my last guess.
    I think I have it now (how many times have I thought that?)

    Imin, the first Elf to awaken at the pool.

    That is correct; Imin, of course, meaning "First". I would also have accepted as equally correct Iminye (also meaning "First"), his wife who woke up beside him.

    Thanks to aleczander, we got that one figgered out.

    Apple?

    I'll take a quick shot and say Samwise Gamgee (although the target may be Bill Ferny).

    Yes and yes.
    As expected, any Tolkien geek would immediately think of Sam bonking Ferny in the nose with an apple.

    It is tough to come up with one word that stumps a true Tolkien geek. Cutholen, you have challenged us the most so far.

    Ok, do it again!

    The White Tree of Gondor came from a fruit that Isildur stole from Nimloth the Fair, the White Tree of Númenor.
