The prequel to The Lord of the Rings (1954), The Hobbit (1937) is an extraordinarily rich work that first introduced us to the world of Middle-earth and sets up the fantasy world that would be built upon at greater length in Tolkien's later books. Peter Jacksons trilogy of films based on this single work has helped to create a whole new generation of Tolkien fans. This is the quintessential read for any Tolkien fan, young or old. It also acts as a base reference for those who have newly stepped into Tolkien's world. With a Middle-earth-age period style, this visually appealing guide can be leafed through by topic or read cover to cover.
