This time no less than three new Hobbits have arrived, all the way from Brasil.
Thanks to Rafael Pereira da Silva, who bought these books for me and shipped them to The Netherlands. Thanks again, Rafael!
All three books have been published by HarperCollins Brasil (Rio de Janeiro) in 2019. I now have eleven Hobbits from Brasil.
These three new Hobbits are # 708, 709 and 710 in my Hobbit collection.
First new Hobbit: paperback, illustrated by Tolkien (color & b&w).
Second new Hobbit: hardback no dust jacket issued. Illustrated by Tolkien (color and b&w). Extra: poster Rivendell (37 x 37 cm) by Tolkien.
Third new Hobbit:same ISBN-number as the second new Hobbit. Hardback with dust jacket. Illustrated by Tolkien (color and b&w). Extra: the inside of the dust jacket is part of “Bilbo comes to the huts of the Raft-elves” by Tolkien.
This time a most welcome Hobbit arrived thanks to publisher / translator Kaveesha Nadun Kaggodaarachchi:
the FIRST edition of the Sinhalese Hobbit (Sri Lanka).
Thanks very much Kaveesha!
I now have three editions of the Sinhalese Hobbit: 2013 (first), 2016 (second)and 2018 (third). Click here to see them.
