Good friends Eric & Liesbeth made a camper tour to Spain, Portugal and France.
And found several Hobiits for me. Two of them for my collection. Thanks Eric & Liesbeth!
I now have 815 Hobbits from 86 countries / in 86 languages.

Looks familiar? That’s right, I have a similar cover, but that’s a Hobbit, which was published for free by French libraries (click here).

Where would I be without my helpers, fellow collectors, who give me a tip or buy one or more books for me (I pay them for it!)?
These three new Hobbits are also there thanks to helpers. The English Hobbit thanks to Nico St., the Canadian (1976 FIRST) and the Russian (“Escher” 2009) thanks to Nick J.

Well, this is not exactly a new Hobbit……

Paperback, 2020, 60th printing.
But, there already was a 60th printing (hardback with original Tolkien cover 1937).

Plus: Normally silver foil was used in this edition, but because of the limited edition, light gray printing ink was used instead.

Seven new Hobbits have arrived …..

The past few weeks have been a good Hobbit time. As many as seven new Hobbits found their way into my collection.
As a result, the collection now consists of 804 Hobbits from 85 countries or in 85 languages.
Striking: five of the seven appeared this year, in 2022. The Hobbit, forever young.

Below are the seven new acquisitions.

It has been a bit quiet at for a while. One of the reasons was the replacement of my laptop. After that, not everything went as planned.
Fortunately, the problems are now over and I can report five new Hobbits.

First of all, two Polish Hobbits (from 1988 and 1991), thanks to JOHAN VANHECKE. Then two brand new Danish editions, thanks to a Facebook message from SØREN VALDEMAR BYRIAL and last but not least a special Croatian edition of the comic Hobbit thanks to OLIVER BOZOVIC.

Thanks to all and if you come across a Hobbit that is missing from my collection, please contact me.

Thanks to these five new Hobbits, I now have 797 Hobbits in 85 languages / from 85 countries.
