Concerning Hobbits

And this is easily my favourite present of all time. A second edition, eighth impression of The Hobbit from 1956. Craig gave it to me for my 31st birthday and I was completely speechless when I opened it. I think he was apologising for the dust-jacket being sunned while I was, quite unfairly, hugging the book before I hugged him.

Here Tolkien explains where he has made the changes in the second edition

And maps!

This will always be my absolute favourite book of any sort in my collection. And I have been brave enough to read a few chapters of it as well. It has a seventh impression dust-jacket which I will discuss more later on…
