Beyond Bree May 1985 is an issue of Beyond Bree, edited by Nancy Martsch.

The issue reproduces a genealogical tree by J.R.R. Tolkien entitled 'Kinship of the Half-elven' and an extract from a manuscript Concerning ... 'The Hoard' together with several extracts from letters to Eileen Elgar regarding The Silmarillion (a letter of 5 March 1964 and a letter of 24 December 1971).

Further discussion and explanation of the genealogical tree were published in the June 1985 issue of Beyond Bree.[1][2]
