The History of the Hobbit Celebrating Boxed Set
It has to be said, it is a remarkable year! The publication of The Children of Hurin, the release of The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion & Guide, The J.R.R. Tolkien Encyclopedia, The History of the Hobbit finally completed last week, the celebration of 30 years The Silmarillion and 70 years The Hobbit,...

Well it is great... and it gets even greater.
I did announce you earlier that a celebration boxed set of the Hobbit, Mr Baggins and the Return to Bag-end would be published. It would be a three-book slipcased edition comprising of The Hobbit and the two volumes of the History of the Hobbit. Today I can show you how the back of the slipcase will look like!

It looks great, doesn't it? The cover art by Tolkien on a slipcase... it is finally come true! It will be released on 17 September 2007, marking exactly 70 years since The Hobbit was first published, this commemorative boxed set comprises hardback gift editions of The Hobbit and the two-volume companion work The History of the Hobbit, which includes the very different unpublished draft version of Tolkien’s masterpiece.
