I have 2 copies of The Hobbit.
One is this gold one that I got from a science fiction book mail order book club and this second set that I got at Costco.
This is the slipcover for the gold book, which is a quality paper printing of the book.
The black box set has a regular hardcover copy with a CD and bonus items!
inside the gold version:
postcards of the original picture plates
I guess I have my Dad’s paperback that I read and reread so many times as a kid…..
anyway… I still am really disappointed in the new movie
I hope they do a one disc cut back version of the parts of the movie that are the actual book and story.
