J.R.R.Tolkien, The Hobbit

There are many ways to make and illustrate J.R.R. Tolkiens "The Hobbit" books, but I think the one shown below is the most beautiful presentation of hobbits, elves, dwarfs and dragons.

 I asked for written permission of the publisher in January 2000 to be allowed to display some of this (permission) and I'l give you a short impression of the book praised above (which is out of print today).
As far as I know Ballantines holds the publishing rights of this edition today. They offer some other beautiful editions, new and old. Take a look at their homepages
http://www.randomhouse.com/BB/ and http://www.houghtonmifflinbooks.com, search for "Hobbit".

We should ask them to put this edition into print again too! Info about this book

Read a bit of Chapter 1, A Unexpected Party - Roast Mutton.
Have a look and judge for yourself.

Seeing is not all - hearing improves the impression text and pictures create:

Text-Version  - as narrated by Nicol Williamson on Argo Records, 1974
The speaker of this version is really worth listening to :
