At you can pre-order your copy of the Annotated Hobbit by Douglas Anderson. It is due out June 26. Here is a abbreviated review from the pubisher, Houghton-Mifflin: ‘It has been revised and expanded… (the author) has also used wonderful illustrations from all over the world. There are many new annotations in this edition and they reflect more than a decade’s worth of additional scholarship on the history and evolution of The Hobbit. This edition also reproduces the fully corrected text of The Hobbit as J.R.R. Tolkien approved it before his death. Anderson has painstakingly compared every page from every major edition of The Hobbit with Tolkien’s own last checking copy in the restoration work for this definitive edition’. Wow! I’m getting this one!
