Rachael (rachaelkatherine) | 1 comments Hi I'm looking into the hobbit for my University essay/presentation and I'm struggling to come over any sites that have information on the released editions and art work (I'm studying Illustration) of the Hobbit.

I was wondering if anyone knew any good sites for the History of the Hobbit Publications preferably with imagery too? Thank you :)

There is a list of English language editions and translated into other languages editions of The Hobbit, complete with book covers, on a site called Tolkien Gateway. Once there, just click The Hobbit and you will find the pages.

Here's a link to the ISFDB (Internet Speculative Fiction Database) page for The Hobbit. It has an extensive listing of editions and states, where known, who the cover and interior artist is. Whilst it is a user-maintained database, every edit is moderated and there are references as to where the edition information has sourced.

Wastrel | 13 comments British editions of Tolkien are listed, with pictures, at Tolkien Books if that's any help.

This site also has information about and links to stories about different editions and whatnot - from a collecting point of view but there may be useful info there.
