On the contrary, the change from mythic time to historic time takes place in the history of Middle-Earth itself, with the downfall of Numenor. Elvenhome was removed from the circles of the world; in the same way, the memory of the Elder Days was taken away, leaving only Bilbo's translations from the Elvish.
