A major update of the gallery of translations of the Hobbit has been made: Hobbits around the Globe. Now we already have 142 Hobbits in the gallery!

Thanks to a nice program called "galerie" it will be very easy to add new hobbits in the future.

Next week i will start adding some galleries for other Tolkien books. So people can start sending me all high resolution scans of The Silmarillion, Farmer Giles of Ham, Mr. Bliss, eo. of their own country in their own language. Please provide year of publication and if possible the ISBN and of course your name (so i can add you to the contributors list).

First of all: do you think it would be possible at all to view the covers sorted for country?

Then for some corrections.

The italian Hobbit you signed for 1986 is really 1984: 1986 is a reprint.

You have the same italian Hobbit twice: once in 2000, and once in 2002. First printing for that edition is 1989.

And last but not least: expect to receive some italian covers soon (is a zip file OK, or do you prefer a single email for each cover?)

I would be very happy to get the Italian cover... zip is great... one mail (if not over 30 MB, but not to crash the system maybe not pass 5MB a mail, i can pull it in but it might take VERY long) is ok, ... i got my own mailserver so i can pull it.

Thnxs for the corrections, i just add the hobbits and hope people correct me when others make mistakes. I got more reprints i think... because people do scan a reprint and send it in. It is almost impossible for me to check if all is correct. But the community is very attentive and sends corrections all the time... which is great!
