Product Description

Perfect for traveling or keeping close on a sidetable, this pocket-sized edition of The Hobbit contains the full text in small, but readable, font.

Bilbo Baggins was a respectable hobbit, who never had any adventures-or didn't, until Gandalf persuaded him to go along with Thorin Oakenshield and his company of Dwarves to retrieve the Arkenstone treasure. During his journey, Bilbo finds a magic ring, helps the dwarves to escape from giants and wood-elves, and plays an increasingly important role in the relations between the armies dividing up Smaug the Dragon's horde, returning to the Shire with plenty of stories to tell.

300 pages, hardcover, with color original dust-jacket illustrated by Tolkien. This text contains all revisions and corrections that have been made since the original publication, and conforms to the British Fourth Edition published by George Allen & Unwin in 1978.

Publisher's Description

A great modern classic and the prelude to The Lord of the Rings
This charming pocket-sized edition contains the complete unabridged text and features the original cover illustration, painted by J.R.R. Tolkien himself.  The perfect gift for little Hobbits everywhere!

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.
