So this past Saturday a group of my friends and I all watched the three The Lord of the Rings extended edition movies in one sitting.
That night, I borrowed a copy of The Hobbit, which I've never read, from my brother. When I got home, my wife informed me that she already has a copy of The Hobbit.
Comparing the two, the one from my brother was published in the late sixties or early seventies but doesn't have a publishing date or an ISBN. This book has a hardcover and has odd drawings of a hand pointing at something on the first few pages. This book is about nine inches tall by eight inches wide.
The cover just reads:
The one my wife has is a recent paperback.
On the cover it says:
The enchanting prelude to Lord of the Rings
with an illustration of the shire between J.R.R. TOLKIEN and the line about LotR.
Inside the paperback version it says:
The Hobbit, or There and Back Again
By J.R.R. Tolkien
What has been revised in the recent paperback version of The Hobbit compared to the one my brother owns?
