Three new Hobbits have arrived …..

 

 

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

Rafael Pereira da Silva also collects Harry Potter in as many languages as possible and had three Hobbits for exchange.
He received the seven Dutch-language paperbacks in return. Thanks, Rafael.

These Hobbits are # 668 through 670 in my Hobbit collection. More information? Click on year below the covers from left to right: 2009   2013   2016

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.

NEW HOBBIT HAS ARRIVED …..

  

This Hobbit might look like two Hobbits that already are in my collection (Eng 12 and Eng 99), but no. There is a difference:
on the spine of the book there is that little Tolkien dragon. Eng 12: in yellow, Eng 99: in red and Eng 160 (this Hobbit): in orange.
And yes, this Hobbit has the HC logo in white and not in silver, just like on the front cover.

This Hobbit is # 656 in my Hobbit collection.

NEW HOBBIT HAS ARRIVED …..

It is not my custom to buy special bindings from books. Yet I made an exception for The Hobbit in Latin, in leather bound by Handbuchbinderei Anna Kabs from Weidenthal – Germany.

The book is really beautifully bound with Bilbo by Dutch illustrator Cor Blok on the cover. The content of the book is equal to the first edition (2012) of The Hobbit in Latin.

This Hobbit is # 655 in my Hobbit collection. More infomation about this Hobbit? Click here.
