First I would like to apologize if this is not the best place for this post. If that is the case, please, move it or, if necessary, delete it. I do not seek any trouble.

Having said that, the reason for this post if to ask you for help. In my mother tongue, Galician, a minority language talked in the northwest of Spain, there is a translation of TLOTR and The Hobbit, but the editions are kind of old, from 2002 so hard to find, and were published under low standards: as part of a child literature collection, as pocketbooks, pretty bad quality paper etc. The typical cheap child book.

Here you can have a look at the cover, just out of curiosity.

Open in new window


I think Tolkien deserves a much better quality edition and, as many other authors have been translated and published in Galician under much better standards, I have started a Change.org petition to show Galician publishers the is a real interest in a new edition.

That is what the petition says in my mother tongue.

Thus, I kindly ask you if you could support my petition.

This is the link.

Thanks a lot if sorry if this is not the place for it.

thanks for sharing! I would love to see a new edition (or have one of the original sets in my collection).

I don't think they are going to print anything else. It still hasn't reached 100 signatures.

I don't know it can be useful, but here you have a link to the original edition.
