NEW HOBBIT HAS ARRIVED ……

This year (2017) The Hobbit celebrates his 80th birthday. In Finland a special edition was published. Like in 1973 (Finland first) illustrated by Tove Jansson.

Remarkable: in 1973 the title of the book was LOHIKÄÄRME – VUORI.

The book: hardback with dustjacket, published by WSOY.
This Hobbit is # 626 in my Hobbit collection. More information about this Hobbit? Click here.
