The Hobbit: The Hobbit
J. R. R. Tolkien - 2015 - 210 pages
In this reprint several minor inaccuracies, most of them noted by readers, have been corrected. For example, the text now corresponds exactly with the runes on Throrís Map. More important is the matter of Chapter Five. There the true story of the ending of the Riddle Game, as it was eventually reve...aled (under pressure) by Bilbo to Gandalf, is now given according to the Red Book, in place of the version Bilbo first gave to his friends, and actually set down in his diary. This departure from truth on the part of a most honest hobbit was a portent of great significance. It does not, however, concern the present story, and those who in this edition make their first acquaintance with hobbit-lore need not troupe about it. Its explanation lies in the history of the Ring, as it was set out in the chronicles of the Red Book of Westmarch, and is now told in The Lord of the Rings.
