An Hobad - The Hobbit in Irish. The Hobbit As GaeilgeThis is the first Irish edition of the Hobbit published in 2012. It includes the full text translated into Irish, and all of Tolkien’s maps and pictures. An especially nice job has been done rendering all the maps and text on the the illustrations as gaeilge

The book begins like this :

I bpoll sa talamh a bhí cónaí ar hobad. Níor pholl gránna, salach, fliuch é, lán le giotaí de phéisteanna agus le boladh láibe. Níor pholl tirim, lom, gainmheach a bhí ann ach an oiread, gan aon rud ann le n-ithe ná le suí síos air; poll hobaid ab ea é agus is ionann sin agus compared.

Sorry, but I don't offer valuations. If you own this item yourself, and want to find out what it's worth, then the best advice I can give is to check eBay completed items to see if one similar has been sold recently.
