The Hobbit (Part 1 and 2) SlipcaseA new paperback edition of The Hobbit which came out in 2012 presumably to tie in with the release of the first of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies. At the time of publication, the 2012 Hobbit movie was to be the first of a 2-part adaptation.

But soon afterwards it was revealed that the Hobbit movie was going to be in three parts - which makes this particular 2-part edition a bit of a strange curiosity…

I don’t know if a 3-part edition is planned, but I imagine it would make for some pretty flimsy individual volumes.

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.

One Response to “The Hobbit (in 2 Parts)”

  1. It’s rather strange that they’d split it into two parts. Personally if I had gone to see “Unexpected Journey” without reading the book, I would have wanted to read the end before seeing the next two movies.
