NEW HOBBIT HAS ARRIVED

In 1994 the first translation into Crotian was published. In the same year the chapters 1 & 2 were publishe in magazine FUTURA.
The first Croatian translation is still missing in my collection, but now – thanks to Aaron from Ireland – I have a copy of FUTURA.

This Hobbit is @ 869 in my Hobbit collection (in 87 languages, # 88 is coming soon: a translation into Lule Sámi, a language spoken by only very few people in Norway and Sweden).
