Two new Bulgarian Hobbits

Two long awaited Hobbits arrived this week. Thanks to Jan Boom (thank you again, Jan).

First there are nine Original comic magazines with the complete comic Hobbit in 38 pages. A true gem for the collector.

And then there was, again thanks to Jan, the first printing 1975 of the Bulgarian translation of The Hobbit.

Looks familiar, is it not? Yes, there are at least two editions that look like this Hobbit. One for the 75 years jubilee and one with the words THE WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER in just another way.

“New” French Hobbit has arrived ….

Not really a new edition. I have deceided not to buy all the editions with a cover of part two of The Hobbit. Yet I will try and collect all the covers from part one.
This was a missing one: France. Not the same as Fra 27: different positions for the logo and “Maintenant au cinéma”.
