The Hobbit Facsimile Gift Edition
The Hobbit Facsimile Gift Edition | J. R. R. Tolkien
This sumptuous gift set includes a replica of the very rare first edition of The Hobbit, the only edition where one can now read the original version of the story before Tolkien re-edited it to become the one enjoyed by readers since 1951. The Hobbit was published on 21 September 1937, with a print run of 1,500 copies. With a beautiful cover design, nearly a dozen black & white illustrations and two black & red maps by the author himself, the book proved to be popular and was reprinted shortly afterwards. History was already being made. The scarcity of the first edition has resulted in copies commanding huge prices, way beyond the reach of most Tolkien fans. In addition, subsequent changes to the text - particularly those to chapter 5, when Tolkien decided in 1947 to revise the text to bring it better into accord with events as they were developing in its 'sequel', The Lord of the Rings - mean that the opportunity to read the book in its original form and format has become quite difficult. This special commemorative gift set includes the first edition, so that readers of all ages - not just 'children between the ages of 5 and 9', as Rayner Unwin famously declared in his report on the original submission - can finally enjoy Tolkien's story as it originally appeared. It also includes an exclusive CD of archive recordings that capture Tolkien reading from The Hobbit, a special copy of Thror's map which reveals the secret moon-runes when held to the light, and an accompanying booklet that relates the history of The Hobbit, and includes connected writings by JRR Tolkien.

#7Days7Covers. Day 4 of #CoverCrush

Here‘s my Day 4 cover.

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Have you been tagged yet? Care to play along? Post covers you love over 7 days without an explanation and tag someone new each day.

Andrew65 @EadieB @gradcat Endoscopy went well today, nothing sinister there to use Doctor‘s words, some inflammation from acid reflux so to keep taking acid medication. Discharged from this part. Now next Saturday ultrasound to see if pains are biliary colic and gall stones, which seem worse today! Also too see if this is what is causing irregular readings from liver. 🤞for latest blood test readings from Friday. So one step forward. 3d
Librariana Pardon my nosey comment reading, but glad to hear things went well for you! I saw the word 'endoscopy' and then kept reading since my husband also had one not too long ago. 3d
Librariana Also! Hope next Saturday's news are positive. Not that you are curious about my little family's medical history, but I personally dealt with gallstones and had to have my gallbladder removed. No complaints here since I had that procedure done more than 14 years ago, but wishing you the best! 3d
See All 29 Comments
Andrew65 @Librariana Thanks for your best Wishes, and pleased to hear potential light at the end of the tunnel. 👍😊 Been a difficult couple of months. Yes endoscopy not pleasant - now had one twice in 2 years! Hope your husband‘s went well. 3d
EadieB @Andrew65 Glad to hear that Endoscopy went well but sorry to hear you are still having problems and have to wait a whole week for the next test. Not good! 3d
EadieB @Andrew65 Love this cover too! 3d
gradcat Thanks for the update, @Andrew65 ... glad the endoscopy is done and you‘re clear. I‘m still hoping you get an answer, but in the meantime I suppose that being able to take the reflux meds will help with some of the discomfort you were having while you had to stop them for the scope. I will be anxious to hear about results from blood work up and the ultrasound. So sorry you‘re having to go through this, but glad to see you‘re keeping your chin up. 3d
gradcat Sorry—I totally forgot to say you picked a perfectly fantastic cover today! 😂 3d
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks, not a lot else you can do. We all have things we have to go through in life. As a head teacher can‘t allow staff to see me down or will affect them. 🤞 Next week goes quickly and smoothly. (edited) 3d
EadieB @Andrew65 @gradcat Andrew, always thinking of others! But I agree that you have to keep them feeling secure! 2d
EadieB @gradcat Thanks! I like this one and I need to read this book! 2d
Andrew65 @EadieB 😂 True but that‘s the very essence of leadership. Lead by example. 2d
EadieB @Andrew65 I agree! Then every time they have a hangnail they won't stay home from work when you are there no matter what condition you are in. 2d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thank you!! I will 🙌🏻📚 2d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I hope everything is ok Andrew!! I didn‘t know you were sick ❤️ 2d
Andrew65 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thanks, been a few issues over the past two months. Hopefully they are well on the way to sorting it. Barring pain, discomfort, and acid reflux not felt ill although they can bring you low! 2d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Andrew65 I‘ll be thinking about you ❤️🙏🏻 2d
sudi I just dropped in to say that we picked the same cover, yay for twinning 🙌. Then i read the comments and wanted to say that i hope everything turns out okay for you 💕 2d
Andrew65 @sudi Thanks 😊👍, always great to see people choose the same books. 2d
JazzFeathers I love this cover. 2d
gradcat @EadieB & @Andrew65 Both of you are always thinking of others—I have the pleasure of reading books with you guys & @Crazeedi ... what more would an old gal like me want? #litsylove 😂♥️ 2d
EadieB @gradcat Andrew and I are soulmates in our reading. We like a lot of the same books and love to read with other people. I gave him the name Question Master because he makes up the best questions for our group and buddy reads. 2d
gradcat @EadieB And I didn‘t know that about Andrew either! 😂 You‘re great book-reading buddies, in my opinion! ♥️ 2d
Andrew65 @gradcat @Eadieb We are, and you are rapidly joining us, as has @Tove_Reads This is my page on Librarything, although not fully updated recently. https://www.librarything.com/profile/Andrew-theQM (edited) 2d
gradcat @Andrew65 I have to check that out! Oh, yes, defo @Tove_Reads ... I‘d only forgotten for a moment because she wasn‘t with us on the last buddy read. Thanks for the compliment, too! 2d
Crazeedi @gradcat @Andrew65 has recommended many of the books I've read too! Actually maybe like 6 or 7 series so far? @EadieB @Tove_Reads Andrew and you and I need to hang out!! 1d

I finished my reread of The Hobbit today. Then I discovered that there is a buddy read going on. I guess I was on the same wavelength as the others without even knowing. 😊

Is there a reading schedule or discussion questions? I'd love to chime in.

#LOTRbuddyread @TheReadingMermaid

TheReadingMermaid Hey there darlin 👋😊 no there is no reading schedule but the discussions are scheduled for the last day of the month. Then on the first day of October we will begin The Fellowship of the Ring. Then November will be The Two Towers. December will be Return of the King.

I had my husband pick the next book for me to read, so he handed me his well read copy of “The Hobbit”. I know, I know..... I‘m probably one of the few that had not ready any of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s books, but I want to change that. I also think my husband is excited to finally talk to me about them!

wordslinger42 A bunch of us are going to be doing a read-a-long of Lord of the Rings if you'd like to join in! 😊 I think it's going to start end of this year/beginning of next. @JazzFeathers is that right? 2w

Soooooo, I'm a sucker and have decided to bring another (broken) kitty into my home. I've always wanted to name a cat Gimli, and although he's not a short and squat ginger, I've decided it's finally time to use the name. Then, I decided it is time for a reread of Tolkien's masterpieces in honor of the new arrival. Starting with Bilbo's tale. #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #newarrival #adventuresofthegmen #adoptdontshop

I've made a terrible mistake. I decided to reread The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and Silmarillion. The mistake is that I started reading it out loud to Bastet. She enjoyed it (for whatever reason) and now every time I reach for it, she sits down with me for me to continue. She's a bossy thing. #readingaloud #readingtomycat #Tolkienfankitty

I started teaching The Fellowship of the Ring last week and I went into full nerd mode while I was explaining Middle Earth and everything to my students, because none of them were even a little familiar with the story! 😱

JazzFeathers 😂 l know a professor of comparative literature that told me in one of his lessons he realised no one of the students were familiar with The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter or the Chronicles of Narnia.

In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

MrsBabki Did you like this book? I was forced to read it in grade 9. Almost killed me. Maybe because it was a forced reading - I don‘t know. Should I try again as an adult? 4w

Day 3 of the sunburn... I've tried all your remedies. My back and arms are just as bad. So far aloe, acetaminophen, and wine are the only things that seem to be helping. I'm walking with a limp, but unfortunately do not look as cool as an old school pimp.

I have to teach 20 kindergarteners at 8:30 am. Send help. Actually, no. Please send cases of wine. 🍷😭

KarenUK Ouch! Poor you! I hear ya with the wine! My sciatica is playing up right now, and a glass of wine definitely helps! 2mo
Megabooks Oh dear! As a fellow pale person, I can relate. Your cure sounds as good as any I‘ve tried. 💙 2mo
the-woman-who-read-everything My preferred sunburn cure is to put a bottle of lotion in the fridge, then rub the cold lotion on the sunburn. Cooling + moisturizing! 2mo
See All 13 Comments
DaveGreen7777 OUCH! 🥵 Hope you get some relief soon! 😔 2mo
Bookzombie My husband swears by apple cider vinegar. It stings but he says it brings relief after a bit. I like to apply Noxema when I get burned. Hope it passes soon! I burn easily and it‘s awful. 2mo
Redwritinghood That looks painful! Have you tried an over the counter lidocaine cream? That might help with the pain. 2mo
GingerAntics You want to make sure you‘re really well hydrated, almost over hydrated, or it takes longer to heal. 2mo
rretzler Soaking in a cool, not cold tub, should help to take the sting away. Warm shower/bath may make it worse. Treat just like you would any other burn. Aloe is definitely a must, as is ibuprofen. Plus hydration If you have trouble sleeping, put baby powder on your bottom sheet. We had a summer home at a lake in the days when people used Hawaiian Tropic oil to improve their tan instead of lotion with SPF to protect so I‘ve had my share of bad sunburns! 2mo
Skyrimir I had an awful sunburn as a teenager. Like, burn on top of burn. The doctor gave me silver sulfadiazine cream to help with it. It helped, but I did have to have a prescription I think. Lidocaine is also very helpful. Hope you feel better soon! 2mo
Patchshank I don't know if this will be helpful or not. As a kid I got a really bad sunburn and my mom had me put some sort of face cleaner that came in a blue jar on the burn before bed. She also had me sleep on the softest sheets we own. I can't remember the name of the face wash, but maybe someone out there will know? 2mo
TheSpineView If you are using Aloe in a jar or bottle put it in the fridge. Being cold makes it easier to apply on the sensitive burnt skin. 2mo
BethM @Skyrimir is right. It sounds silly but go to the dr for the cream. 2mo

My last book was so bad (Daughter of the Siren Queen) that I had to treat my brain to a classic. So, I'm re-reading The Hobbit for the first time in like 10 years, and I'm going to read the rest of the LotR series for the first time. 🤓

I hate movie tie-in editions, but I bought this box set for Lucas when we were living in our 1st apartment and just building our library. So, I'm a little attached to them now. ❤

Loved listening to this fun adventure in my car. I will never tire of the funny lil hobbit Bilbo. He‘s just so fun and humorous and Full of bravery. He inspires me. Also I love listening to an audiobook that the reader sings the songs . So good! Listen to this if you haven‘t! 🖤

We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner! I can't think what anybody sees in them.

First book of The Reading Rush is done! So far completed the Read a Book with a non-human MC challenge!

Now onto Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban!!

TobeyTheScavengerMonk I had an older edition of this, but the cover was nowhere near that lovely. 2mo
DuskAngelReads @TobeyTheScavengerMonk agreed. I‘ve seen pictures of the old cover and this one is a lot nicer imo. I think the new one is different slightly as well. The back cover says something about 30 new pages of artwork, or something. 2mo
