NEW HOBBIT HAS ARRIVED …..

A Hobbit with a story: several times (in 2018 alone four times) I thought I had bought this Hobbit. But …. four times the Hobbit as shown was NOT the Hobbit i received.

But then, all of a sudden, my cousin Marian F. – on a holiday in Germany – bought this Hobbit for me in Berlin. Thanks again, Marian!

This Hobbit, Germany 2011, is # 675 in my Hobbit collection. More information about this Hobbit? Click here.

Three new Hobbits have arrived …..

 

 

This time three Hobbits arrived from Brazil. No ordinary purchase, but an old-fashioned barter trade.

He received the seven Dutch-language paperbacks in return. Thanks, Rafael.

FIVE NEW HOBBITS HAVE ARRIVED …..

 

 

 

No less than five new Hobbits arrived during the last two weeks. The Netherlands (and certainly I) suffered from temperatures above 32 dTurkeyegrees celsius.

First there are three (modern) Chinese Hobbits, amongst them the possibly most beautifully illustrated Hobbit: The Catlin Hobbit (yes, even in China!). Also very interesting: the one with Bilbo and the eagle happens to be the FIRST AUTHORISIZED CHINESE EDITION! And .. the 1993 Chinese Hobbit is a Pirate edition. (Thanks to Brigitte from Germany these Hobbits are now in my collection).

China FIRST and the Pirate edition: Thank you Lawrence Chang for telling me.

And then there are two Hobbits from Turkey, bought from Pandora: The Annotated Hobbi 2014 and The Hobbit 80 years 2017.

The Hobbits are # 662 – 666 in my Hobbit collection.
