The Hobbit Illustrated Edition


With the holidays sneaking upon us like the first cool flakes of snow, we have brought in a very special linen-bound edition of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, illustrated by Jemima Catlin.

From HarperCollins:

“This edition is the first time that THE HOBBIT has been specifically illustrated for children as well as adults and it contains over 150 brand new illustrations for the first time in over 20 years. A perfect edition for fans of all ages.

Smaug certainly looked fast asleep, when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance. He was just about to step out on to the floor when he caught a sudden thin ray of red from under the drooping lid of Smaug′s left eye. He was only pretending to sleep! He was watching the tunnel entrance!

Whisked from his comfortable hobbit-hole by Gandalf the wizard and a band of dwarves. Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon…”

Readers of all ages will fall in love with this absolutely gorgeous, beautifully illustrated classic tale.
