Description

And I was a bit dismayed at the thought of a new generation growing up with this boffo box office hit as its only version of The Hobbit. E como a maioria dos livros de arte, serve mais para se deixar numa mesa de centro ou para enfeitar a estante. Rosley Books for Antiquarian books, Cumberland, Everyman, Keswick, Inklings, Literature, MacDonald, Rarities, Theology and History.

Introducing your kids to the world of children’s literature is one of the best things about being a parent, and it gets even more exciting once they are ready for longer, more involved stories. For the first time ever, a special enhanced edition of the enchanting prelude to The Lord of the Rings, illustrated throughout with over 50 sketches, drawings, paintings and maps by J. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon .

The text of this edition has been fully corrected and revised in collaboration with Christopher Tolkien and is accompanied by a wealth of beautiful watercolour paintings and delicate pencil drawings from Alan Lee. A deluxe edition of the book is coming out in the UK (no word yet on whether it will also come to the US).

Bilbo Baggins enjoys a quiet and contented life, with no desire to travel far from the comforts of home; then one day the wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves arrive unexpectedly and enlist his services - as a burglar - on a dangerous expedition to raid the treasure-hoard of Smaug the dragon.

In this unique enhanced edition of Tolkien's enchanting classic tale, the full panoply of his art is reproduced for the first time, presenting more than 50 illustrations to accompany Bilbo Baggins on his adventure â there and back again. If it's the same text as the one I've got, he'll see that the films differ from the book - 'Original Story'. His books have been translated into over sixty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide. I first heard the story that year, when my fourth-grade teacher read it to us; he read aloud every day after lunch. The prelude to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most beloved and influential books of the twentieth century.

But the published art has afforded only a glimpse of Tolkien's creative process, and many additional sketches, colored drawings and maps - although exhibited and published elsewhere - have never appeared within the pages of The Hobbit.

But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey there and back again.

His quest takes him through enchanted forests, spiders’ lairs, and under the Misty Mountains, where he comes across the vile Gollum, and tricks him out of his ’Precious’ - a ring that makes its bearer invisible, and wields a terrible power of its own. Tolkien’s own selection of finished paintings and drawings have become inseparable from his text, adorning editions of The Hobbit for more than 85 years.
