I think all the references that I can see in the papers are OCR (Optical Character Recognition) errors from the scanning. The computer is checking a dictionary for words which must include Hobbit and correcting to that.

I agree, a review must be in order, I'm sure a lot of Tolkein info has come to light since the last update, though the rabid boars that Chrisofylofax Tolkein rears to guard his fortress is confirmed and should be included.

An interesting article in The Telegraph on the madness of book collecting and this collection in particular.
