The History of the Hobbit is being reissued in hardback and as a new deluxe edition.

From the publisher

It is a straight reissue – not a revised edition, and with the same plates as previously – but we thought it warranted a new jacket (less beige!) to bring it into line with The Nature of Middle-earth and other recent hardbacks.

Currently scheduled to be released 16 March 2023.
