I have recently received the new anniversary edition of “Hobbit” (35 years since the first Ukrainian translation / 85 years since the first original publication).

What I have to say is that this new edition is marvelous in each it’s detail. For 11 USD price it’s just a bargain! Here is the direct link to it Direct link to the book an the publisher's site

Being one of those who owns the most of HarperCollins original titles in DeLuxe editions, I should acknowledge that the balance price/quality in Ukrainian editions of Tolkien’s books is the best. Nothing to compare with that more and more evaporating “balance” in HarperCollins editions.

Just look at this gorgeous book: highest quality thick paper, rigid book covers, dustcover, vivid colors, a bookmark, and the most interesting thing is that each book has its own number (in the end of book on the page preceding the endpapers) coinciding with the numbered inserted page with signatures of the translator and of the project director. If my memory doesn’t fail me this idea was implemented first time in Ukrainian translations Tolkien publishing history.

Most of the illustrations inside the book are in black and white (except 5 ones), but it’s still a wonderful edition.

I’m tempted to see the forthcoming editions of Tolkien books from my favorite Ukrainian publisher.

They do ship outside the Ukraine. Add an item to the basket, choose your cellular country code from the list, fill in all the other info to place an order. Why have you decided they do not ship) it that had been be true there would be no USD priced and English site)

I don't see a "Country" space to fill, should I put the country together with City in Location? A bit strange

I received an automated email immediately after placing my order, with instructions how to pay via PayPal. After paying, another email from a nice person confirmed the order and said it was being prepared. About a day later I received a third email with the tracking information for my package.

Overall very well handled! The package hasn’t arrived yet of course, but the customer service has been stellar.
