NEW HOBBIT HAS ARRIVED …

No, this is not one of the two Peter Sis covers from my collection. It is a Young readers edition by Houghton Mifflin (2001).
With an imitation leather dust jacket, apparently sponsored by New Line / MGM.

The dust jacket is not from 2001 (like the book), but from 2013.

This Hobbit is # 729 in my Hobbit collection. More information about this Hobbit? Click here.

SEVEN NEW HOBBITS HAVE ARRIVED ….

No less than SEVEN new Hobbits arrived, all the way from China. Thanks to Norton Men, who found them, bought them and sent them to me.
Once again: thanks Norton Men, you have been of great help for me.

In deciphering the Chinese characters of this and earlier Chinese Hobbits, I had the indispensable help from Greg Pringle (from Australia, but now living in Mongolia) and my neighbor, Mr. Li. Thanks, gentlemen, for your help.

Because of these seven new Hobbits, my collection has climbed to 728 Hobbits in 82 languages / from 82 countries.

NEW HOBBIT HAS ARRIVED …..

A Dutch edition of The Hobbit and yes, with the original cover by Tolkien himself. It is for the second time that a Dutch translation has this cover. The first time (but in a smaller format) was in 2015.

In 2020 it is 60 years ago that the first Dutch translation (as third translation worldwide) was published.

But alas ….. still no illustrations. It would have been a nice birthday present for 60 years De Hobbit.

Hardback with dust jacket and reading ribbon. This Hobbit is # 721 in my Hobbit collection.
