A newly revised and updated edition of the premiere gateway for Tolkien fans to learn more about his classic novel The Hobbit For readers throughout the world, The Hobbit serves as an introduction to the enchanting world of Middle-earth, home of elves, wizards, dwarves, goblins, dragons, orcs, and a host of other creatures depicted in The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion--tales that sprang from the mind of the most beloved author of all time, J.R.R. Tolkien. Revised for the thirtieth anniversary of publication, Douglas A. Anderson has drawn on new sources of criticism and newly discovered writings by Tolkien himself to ensure that The Annotated Hobbit is the definitive explication of the sources, characters, places, and things of J.R.R. Tolkien's timeless classic. Integrated with Anderson's notes and placed alongside the fully restored and corrected text of the original story are more than 150 illustrations showing visual interpretations of The Hobbit specific to many of the cultures that have come to know and love Tolkien's Middle-earth. Tolkien's original line drawings, maps, and color paintings are also included, making this the most lavishly informative edition of The Hobbit available.
