Whisked away from his comfortable, unambitious life in his hobbit-hole in Bag End by Gandalf the wizard and a company of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Although quite reluctant to take part in this quest, Bilbo surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and his skill as a burglar! Written for J.R.R. Tolkien''s own children, The Hobbit met with instant success when published in 1937. Now, in 1997, this special new edition, illustrated by Alan Lee, commemorates the sixtieth anniversary of a great classic.

From the Jacket

This is a story of how Bilbo Baggins, usually almost unadventurous hole in the Shire to wondrous adventures involving elves, dwarves, goblins, and dragons in the magical far-off lands beyond the Misty Mountains. Originally created as a fairy tale for his own children, Tolkien''s first venture into Middle-earth has become the classic against which all other fantasies must be measured.

Editorial Reviews

"Warm and dusky colors predominate in the handsome full-color scenes--forty-eight in all, including five lavish spreads--that embellish this edition, which is also beautifully designed."
