A 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.
