Calling All Hobbit-Devotees: Must Have Books!

In honor of the release of the first installment of Peter Jackson’s epic Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, we’re highlighting some Hobbit-related titles from HarperCollins… perfect for the Tolkien fan in your life! Or even more perfect to keep for yourself (because, really, who is not a Tolkien fan?).

“In foramine terrae habitabat hobbitus. (“In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit.”)

Celebrate the occasion with Hobbitus Ille! Translated worldwide into more than 60 modern languages, now Tolkien’s masterpiece is finally published in Latin, and will be of interest to all those who are studying the language, whether at school or at a higher level. In the great tradition of publishing famous children’s books in Latin, professional classicist and lifelong Tolkien fan Mark Walker provides a deft translation, as well as notes and a glossary. The complete text, together with Latinized maps and illustrations make this perfect for schoolchildren and students learning Latin, but also fans who want to dip in and find favorite passages.
