Blurb – Dust Jacket Flap
Here is something that no devotee of the Hobbit epic can afford to miss, while awaiting a further instalment of the history of these fascinating people. For during his renewed study of the ‘Red Book’, undertaken in order to prepare more of its contents for publication, the editor of The Lord of the Rings became interested in verses that are to be found in it, apart from those included in the various tales and legends: pieces written out on loose leaves, crowded into blank spaces, or scrawled in margins.

A selection of these is now offered as an ‘interim report’ to those interested in Hobbit-lore, and to any others who may find amusement in this mixed bag of old confections.

No further explanation need be given to the tens of thousands who have read and re-read the Hobbit epic with growing enthusiasm. They will welcome this addition with equal delight.
