Yes, that's true. And Hither Shore is now print-on-demand, so it'll hopefully be available for many years to come. For example (as I've said here before), I still regret not buying a copy of Tolkien Studies 6 when it originally came out!

On the downside, though, Hither Shore is not as well-known and circulated as Tolkien Studies (at least in the English-speaking world) -- a reason why I try to promote it here and at other websites.

Anyone know if there are two separate covers, or whether this (the non-mustard one) is just an early graphic that doesn't actually exist?

The Hobbit (Paperback) By (author) J. R. R. Tolkien ($10.12)

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers Ltd
Published: 07 November 2013
Format: Paperback 400 pages
See: Full bibliographic data
Categories: Classics Fantasy
ISBN 13: 9780007525492 ISBN 10: 0007525494

Full description for The Hobbit

The classic bestseller behind this year's biggest movie, this film tie-in edition features the complete story of Bilbo Baggins' adventures in Middle-earth as shown in the film trilogy, with a striking cover image from Peter Jackson's film adaptation and drawings and maps by J.R.R. Tolkien. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey 'there and back again'. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon...The prelude to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most beloved and influential books of the twentieth century.

Tolkien: The Forest and the City (Hardback) Edited by Helen Conrad-O'Briain, Edited by Gerard Hynes ($63.33)


Publisher: Four Courts Press Ltd
Published: 20 November 2013
Format: Hardback 248 pages
See: Full bibliographic data
Categories: Literary Studies: General Literary Studies: From C 1900 - Literary Studies: Fiction, Novelists & Prose Writers
ISBN 13: 9781846824296 ISBN 10: 184682429X

Full description for Tolkien: The Forest and the City

Despite the popular and scholarly association of Tolkien with the natural world and literary world-building, Middle-earth as landscape and built environment has been relatively neglected as background, foreground and actor in his texts. Tolkien: the forest and the city presents new work by some of the finest scholars in Tolkien studies, as well as research from a number of emerging scholars, addressing this lacuna. The permeable interface between nature and culture, creation and sub-creation, within Tolkien's world is of absolute importance to our understanding of Tolkien's larger point in writing. From deforestation to the shape of a window, from Sam's cooking gear to the origins of the party tree, this book surveys a world written to distill and intensify the realities of our own. Drawing on a wide variety of critical approaches, from philology to ecocriticism, in a clear, approachable style, this collection explores the interaction of culture and nature that imbues Tolkien's secondary world with the immediacy of our own.

The Hobbit Facsimile First Edition: Boxed Set (Hardback) By (author) J. R. R. Tolkien $50.63




Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers Ltd
Published: 13 September 2013
Format: Hardback 312 pages
See: Full bibliographic data
Categories: Classics Fantasy
ISBN 13: 9780007440832 ISBN 10: 0007440839
Sales rank: 202,844

This sumptuous gift set contains a replica of the very rare first edition of The Hobbit, plus a book about the books's publication history and a CD of previously unreleased archive recordings featuring J.R.R. Tolkien reading from his book. The Hobbit was published on 21 September 1937 with a print run of 1,500 copies. With a beautiful cover design by the author and a coloured frontispiece painting, the book proved to be popular and was reprinted within three months, and history was already being made. The scarcity of the first edition has resulted in copies commanding huge prices, way beyond the reach of most Tolkien fans. In addition, subsequent changes to the text - particularly those to chapter five when Tolkien decided to expand the text to marry it up to events in The Lord of the Rings - mean that the opportunity to read the book in its original form and format has become quite difficult. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of publication, this special edition reprints the first edition, so that Tolkien's book may be enjoyed in its original form. Included in the box is a CD deaturing recordings of Tolkien reading extracts from the book, including more than half an hour of archive recordings only recently discovered and never before released. In addition, a full colour booklet traces the origins of The Hobbit and its publication history, complete with a gallery of artwork and covers for this remarkable book.

J.R.R. Tolkien (New Casebooks (Hardcover)) (Hardback) Edited by Peter Hunt

Publisher: Palgrave MacMillan
Published: 27 September 2013
Format: Hardback 200 pages
See: Full bibliographic data
Categories: Literary Essays Literary Studies: General Literary Studies: From C 1900 - Literary Studies: Fiction, Novelists & Prose Writers Children's Literature Studies: General
ISBN 13: 9781137264008 ISBN 10: 1137264004

J. R. R. Tolkien is arguably the most influential and popular of all fantasy writers. Although his position and status have long been controversial, his popularity has not faded. His best-loved works, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, have sold millions of copies around the world and continue to enthral readers young and old. This lively collection of original essays examines The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in the light of children's literature theory and approaches, as well as from adult and fantasy literature perspectives. Exploring issues such as gender, language, worldbuilding, and ecocriticism, the volume also places Tolkien's works in the context of a range of visual media, including Peter Jackson's film adaptations.
