The History of the Hobbit presents for the first time, in two volumes, the complete unpublished text of the original manuscript of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Hobbit, accompanied by John Rateliff's lively and informative account of how the book came to be written and published. As well as recording the numerous changes made to the story both before and after publication, it examines - chapter-by-chapter - why those changes were made and how they reflect Tolkien's ever-growing concept of Middle-earth.The Hobbit was first published on 21 September 1937. Like its successor, The Lord of the Rings, it is a story that "grew in the telling", and many characters and story threads in the published text are completely different from what Tolkien first wrote to read aloud to his young sons as part of their "fireside reads".As well as reproducing the original version of one of literature's most famous stories, both on its own merits and as the foundation for The Lord of the Rings, this new book includes many little-known illustrations and previously unpublished maps for The Hobbit by Tolkien himself. Also featured are extensive annotations and commentaries on the date of composition, how Tolkien's professional and early mythological writings influenced the story, the imaginary geography he created, and how Tolkien came to revise the book years after publication to accommodate events in The Lord of the Rings.Like Christopher Tolkien's The History of The Lord of the Rings before it, this is a thoughtful yet exhaustive examination of one of the most treasured stories in English literature. Long overdue for a classic book now celebrating 70 years in print, this companion edition offers fascinating new insights for those who have grown up with this enchanting tale, and will delight those who are about to enter Bilbo's round door for the first time.

›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ – eine der drei Großen Geschichten des Ersten Zeitalters von Mittelerde Zwei der größten Mächte Mittelerdes stehen sich in ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ gegenüber: Auf der einen Seite Morgoth, die Verkörperung des Bösen und auf der anderen Ulmo, der Herr der Meere, Seen und Flüsse unter dem Himmel. Im Zentrum ihres Konflikts steht die verborgene Elben-Stadt Gondolin. Turgon, König von Gondolin, wird von Morgoth mehr als alles andere gehasst. Seit Langem versucht der dunkle Herrscher, Gondolin zu finden und zu zerstören, aber vergeblich. In diese Welt kommt Tuor und wird zum Werkzeug von Ulmos Plan. Von ihm geleitet, macht sich Tuor auf den gefahrvollen Weg nach Gondolin und gelangt in die verborgene Stadt. Dort heiratet er Idril, die Tochter Turgons; ihr Sohn ist Earendil, dem es vorherbestimmst ist, einmal der berühmteste Seefahrer des Ersten Zeitalters zu werden. Durch einen gemeinen Verräter erfährt Morgoth, wie er einen vernichtenden Angriff gegen die Stadt führen kann, mit Balrogs, Drachen und zahllosen Orks. Das Verhängnis nimmt seinen Lauf. Christopher Tolkien verwendet in dieser Ausgabe eine vergleichbare Darstellung der Entwicklung der Geschichte wie bei ›Beren und Lúthien‹. Für J.R.R. Tolkien war ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ »die erste richtige Geschichte aus dieser imaginären Welt«, und wie ›Beren und Lúthien‹ und ›Die Kinder Húrins‹ zählte er sie zu den drei ›Großen Geschichten‹ des Ersten Zeitalters von Mittelerde. ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ wurde von Christopher Tolkien herausgegeben und bildet den Abschluss der drei großen Geschichten, die 2007 mit ›Die Kinder Húrins‹ begonnen und 2017 mit ›Beren und Lúthien‹ fortgesetzt wurde. Dieser neue Band enthält zahlreiche Farbtafeln des berühmten Tolkien-Künstlers Alan Lee. Weltweiter Erscheinungstermin von ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹: 30. August 2018

At the 2013 “Celebrating The Hobbit” conference at Valparaiso University—marking the 75th anniversary of the book’s publication and the first installment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies—two plenary papers were presented: “Anchoring the Myth: The Impact of The Hobbit on Tolkien’s Legendarium” by John D. Rateliff provided numerous examples of The Hobbit’s influence on Tolkien’s legendarium; and “Tolkien’s French Connections” by Verlyn Flieger discussed French influences on the development of Bilbo Baggins and his adventures. In discussions with the plenary speakers and other presenters, it became apparent that a book focusing on how The Hobbit influenced the subsequent development of Tolkien’s legendarium was sorely needed. This collection of 15 previously unpublished essays fills that need. With Rateliff’s and Flieger’s papers included, the book presents two chapters on the Evolution of the Dwarven Race, two chapters on Durin’s Day examining the Dwarven lunar calendar, and 11 chapters on themes exploring various topics on influences and revisions between The Hobbit and Tolkien’s legendarium.

"Die Prinzessin und der Kobold" von George MacDonald war, nach dessen eigenen Angaben, das Buch, das J.R.R. Tolkien entscheidend bei der Entstehung von "Der Herr der Ringe" beeinflusst hat. Das Buch gehört zu den Pionieren der Fantasy-Kinderliteratur und sollte in keinem Regal fehlen. Prinzessin Irene lebt in einem großen Haus, "halb Palast, halb Bauernhaus", an einem Berg. Sie wird vom gesamten Personal verwöhnt und geliebt, während ihr "Königspapa" durch sein Reich zieht und seinen Geschäften nachgeht. Sie haben keine Ahnung, dass tief unter ihnen eine Armee Kobolde den Sturm des Hauses plant. Um sie zurückzuschlagen, muss Irene auf die Hilfe des Bergmannsjungen Curdie und ihrer geheimnisvollen, wunderschönen Großmutter, die unbemerkt in einem der Türme des Palastes wohnt, vertrauen ....

This deluxe hardcover edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy contains a short introduction by Christopher Tolkien, a reset text incorporating the most up-to-date corrections, and all of Tolkien’s own drawings and full-color illustrations, including the rare “Mirkwood” piece. J.R.R. Tolkien's own description for the original edition: "If you care for journeys there and back, out of the comfortable Western world, over the edge of the Wild, and home again, and can take an interest in a humble hero (blessed with a little wisdom and a little courage and considerable good luck), here is a record of such a journey and such a traveler. The period is the ancient time between the age of Faerie and the dominion of men, when the famous forest of Mirkwood was still standing, and the mountains were full of danger. In following the path of this humble adventurer, you will learn by the way (as he did) -- if you do not already know all about these things -- much about trolls, goblins, dwarves, and elves, and get some glimpses into the history and politics of a neglected but important period. For Mr. Bilbo Baggins visited various notable persons; conversed with the dragon, Smaug the Magnificent; and was present, rather unwillingly, at the Battle of the Five Armies. This is all the more remarkable, since he was a hobbit. Hobbits have hitherto been passed over in history and legend, perhaps because they as a rule preferred comfort to excitement. But this account, based on his personal memoirs, of the one exciting year in the otherwise quiet life of Mr. Baggins will give you a fair idea of the estimable people now (it is said) becoming rather rare. They do not like noise."

The Book of Lost Tales was the first major work of imagination by J.R.R. Tolkien, begun in 1916-17 when he was twenty-five years old and left incomplete several years later. It stands at the beginning of the entire conception of Middle-earth and Valinor, for these tales were the first form of the myths and legends that came to be called The Silmarillion. Embedded in English legend, they are set in the narrative frame of a great westward voyage over the Ocean by a mariner named Eriol (or AElfwine) to Tol Eressea, the Lonely Isle, where elves dwelt; from him they learned their true history, the Lost Tales of Elfinesse. In these Tales are found the earliest accounts and original ideas of Gods and Elves, Dwarves, Balrogs, and Orcs; of the Silmarils and the Two Trees of Valinor; of Nargothrond and Gondolin; of the geography and cosmology of Middle-earth. Volume One contains the tales of The Music of the Ainur, The Building of valinor, The Chaining of Melko, The coming of the Elves and The Flight of the Noldoli, among others. Each tale is followed by a short essay by Christopher Tolkien, the author's son and literary executor.
