I recently received the latest German translation of The Hobbit illustrated by the author edition to match the translations of The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion that have come out over the last couple of years.

I have included shots with the 2023 HarperCollins author illustrated edition for reference.

As with the others, it’s larger than its English counterpart and has wrap around ruins to stained page edges. No fold out maps, but does come with a slip case and publishers slip.

I have all three of these, and I think they are very well-made books, interesting design choices to the English equivalent editions and I do like the larger size.

Wow these are beautiful. I love the case for it. And its interesting to note how the emblems on the spines are all lined up too unlike the english versions. I've always loved larger books.

Those look great! I need these for my German is spotty at best, but these would be a good impetus to practice. Lovely books!
