NEW HOBBIT HAS ARRIVED …..
This time a Chinese (traditional) Hobbit arrived, thanks to Norton Men (thanks again, Norton Men)
I know that it is a long way from China to The Netherlands, but it took two months for this Hobbit (indeed, a long journey). Maybe he got stuck in the Suez Canal?
As far as I know the first official translation in traditional Chinese was in 2001. This Hobbit is from 1996, a pirate edition?
Soft cover, four color illustrations by Tolkien: The hill: hobbiton-across-the- Water, Rivendell, Bilbo wakes up with the early sun in his eyes and Conversation with Smaug. And on cover: Bilbo comes to the huts of the Raft-Elves (my favorite Tolkien illustration).
This Hobbit is # 775 in my collection. More information about this Hobbit? Click here.
