The Hobbit UK 1937 remake Hardcover published by Harper Collins UK
Now, the classic hardback edition is available once again. Featuring the distinctive cover illustrations painted on by Tolkien himself, it has been redesigned to match the popular hardback editions of the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings, which also feature Tolkien?s cover illustrations.
Bilbo Baggins enjoys a quiet and contented life, with no desire to travel far from the comforts of home; then one day the wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves arrive unexpectedly and enlist his services ? as a burglar ? on a dangerous expedition to raid the treasure-hoard of Smaug the dragon. Bilbo?s life is never to be the same again.
The Hobbit became an instant success when it was first published in 1937, and more than 60 years later Tolkien?s epic tale of elves, dwarves, trolls, goblins, myth, magic and adventure, with its reluctant hero Bilbo Baggins, has lost none of its appeal.
