Amazon has listed a new entry for the forthcoming third edition of The Annotated Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien and Douglas A. Anderson.

Revised for the thirtieth anniversary of publication, Douglas A. Anderson has drawn on new sources of criticism and newly discovered writings by Tolkien himself to ensure that The Annotated Hobbit is the definitive explication of the sources, characters, places, and things of J.R.R. Tolkien's timeless classic. Integrated with Anderson's notes and placed alongside the fully restored and corrected text of the original story are more than 150 illustrations showing visual interpretations of The Hobbit specific to many of the cultures that have come to know and love Tolkien's Middle-earth. Tolkien's original line drawings, maps, and color paintings are also included, making this the most lavishly informative edition of The Hobbit available.

And for the close observers - yes, that is the same description quoted above as for the revised edition from 2002. The page count for the 2002 edition was 399 pp. so there are approximately 17 additional pages of material in this new edition, but no information yet on what.

I am sure they will update with a more accurate description before publication.

Confirmed with HarperCollins that a British edition will follow the US one. No additional details at this time.
