Synopsis

Marking exactly 70 years since The Hobbit was first published, this commemorative boxed set comprises hardback gift editions of The Hobbit and the two-volume companion work which includes the very different unpublished draft version of Tolkien's masterpiece. This three-volume collector's boxed set presents for the first time the complete text of the original manuscript of 'The Hobbit' alongside the definitive hardback edition of the book. First published on 21 September 1937, The Hobbit has gone on to be one of the most treasured stories of all time, often dismissed as a children's book but enjoyed as much by adults as children. Like its successor, 'The Lord of the Rings', this is a story that "grew in the telling", and many characters and story threads present in the published text were completely different when Tolkien first read his story aloud to his young sons as part of their "fireside reads". As well as recording the many changes made to the story both before and after publication, 'Mr Baggins' and 'The Return to Bag-End' examine -- chapter-by-chapter -- why those changes were made and how they reflect Tolkien's ever-growing concept of Middle-earth.The original account of where Bilbo meets Gollum and steals the ring from him is reprinted here in its proper context for the first time in over fifty years, as are many little-known illustrations and previously unpublished maps for the story by Tolkien himself.

Also featured are extensive annotations and essays on the date of composition, the influence of Tolkien's professional and early mythological writings, the imaginary geography, and Tolkien's later revisions. Finally, this boxed set makes available for the first time the text of Tolkien's attempt to recast 'The Hobbit' into the style of 'The Lord of the Rings'. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Für "The History of the Hobbit" gilt, was für "The History of Middle Earth" von Cristopher Tolkien schon galt: Nur der wirklich eingefleischte Tolkien-Fan wird seinen Spaß an diesen Büchern haben.

John Rateliff veröffentlicht den "Ur-Hobbit" Tolkiens mit diversen Vergleichen zwischen längeren und fragmentarisch erhaltenen Tolkienschen Textentwürfen, die zum Teil sehr nah am veröffentlichten Endtext liegen, zum Teil andere Entwicklungen aufzeigen. Interessant vielleicht: Gandalf war ursprünglich der Name einer der Zwerge, später wurde er zu Thorin Eichenschild. Die Figur Gandalf hies ursprünglich Bladthorin. Damit ist fast schon das Aufregendste erzählt :-)

Das ganze gleicht eher einer sprachwissenschaftlichen Studie als einem Roman. Es ist nicht sonderlich flüssig zu lesen, werden doch die einzelnen "Kapitel" stets durch einen Vergleich aller Erzählalternativen und von diversen Anmerkungen zum Text, die sich auf andere Tolkiensche Texte besziehen, unterbrochen. Rateliff hat sich auch extrem viel Mühe gegeben, die "mythologischen" Quellen Tolkienscher Inspiration nachzuverfolgen und hat dazu tief in altenglischen, altdeutschen und nordischen Märchen und Mythen gegegraben.

Band 1 hört beim Eintreffen der Zwerge und Bilbos beim Elbenkönig auf.

Die Aufmachung des Buches ist dabei sehr liebevoll, einige Tolkien-Originalzeichnungen sind dem Band beigegeben.

The History of the Hobbit: One-volume Edition

Diese Rezension bezieht sich auf die Gesammtausgabe 'The History of the Hobbit', die vorher in zwei Bänden erschienen ist. Diese Buch lohnt sich für alle, die sich für die Entstehung des Hobbits interessieren. Ähnlich wie Christopher Tolkiens 'The History of Middle-earth', beinhaltet diese Ausgabe die bisher unveröffentlichten ersten Entwürfe und Skizzen der Geschichte, sowie Illustrationen und Karten. Hier auch veröffentlicht, ist die überarbeitete (und später verworfene) Version der ersten zwei Kapitel; eine Neuerzählung, welche den 'Hobbit' näher mit der Geschichte aus 'Der Herr der Ringe' verknüpfen sollte. Das ganze wird begleitet von umfangreich Kommentaren des Autors John D. Rateliff.

The Making Of A Masterpiece 21. September 2007
Von John D. Cofield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
J.R.R. Tolkien must be among the most heavily analyzed of twentieth century writers. His drafts and redrafts of his Middle earth legendarium, in some cases dating back to his years in service during World War I, have been published as The History of Middle-earth by his son and literary executor Christopher Tolkien. Through their multiple volumes students can trace the evolution of Tolkien's world. Until now, however, we have been unable to trace the story of the work which made Tolkien and Middle-earth well known to the general public. John D. Rateliff, after many years of patient scholarship, has now filled that gap with The History of the Hobbit.

Mr. Baggins is the first of two volumes in The History of the Hobbit, and readers should buy it with its companion Return to Bag End at the same time. The second volume starts with page 469, and there is no Index in Volume I, for example. Mr. Rateliff has identified five phases in the writing of The Hobbit. Mr. Baggins covers the first and most of the second phases. Practically every word Tolkien wrote is printed, with extensive and fascinating notes and short essays by Mr. Rateliff interpolated with Tolkien's text. Colored plates showing some of Tolkien's sketches and maps are included, too.

The early versions of The Hobbit are startling, to say the least. Bilbo Baggins walks out of his hobbit hole one morning to meet the wizard Bladorthin, who brings thirteen dwarves led by their chieftain Gandalf to visit him. Bilbo is strongarmed into becoming the dwarves' burglar, charged with recovering an immense treasure from the dragon Pryftan. People who have read the published Hobbit will recognize that the essential story is present, but with many variations and false starts which Tolkien eventually straightened out.

The text notes and short essays provided by Rateliff are absolutely fascinating. They include discussions on the nature of elves, the origins of the word bilbo, magic rings from Plato onwards, and the influence the Dr. Dolittle series and the Tolkien children's love for bears had on the construction of The Hobbit.

This volume ends with Bilbo and the dwarves' arrival in Laketown. Again, be sure to buy Volume II at the same time as Volume I, because you'll want to keep reading!

Engrossing and sumptuous Hobbit history 1. Mai 2008
Von Richard D. Marcus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
For those who loved their journey from Hobbiton, across Mirkwood, to the Lonely Mountain and back, "The History of The Hobbit," by John Rateliff is a delight - even better than a second Breakfast. You will relive the first pleasure of reading about that most excellent and audacious Mr. Bilbo Baggins in early drafts by Tolkien.

We find that the wizard Galdalf was first named Bladorthin. Thorin was originally named Gandalf, the dwarf. Even Smaug was once Pryftan. Why these names evolved and much much more make "The History of the Hobbit," a great read for mere fans, philologists, as well as certified literary critics of Professor Tolkien.

Each chapter-length section of early drafts by Tolkien is enhanced with excellent text notes about these fragments. Following these sections of The Hobbit, Rateliff presents notes on the characters, geography, and types of magic encountered in Middle Earth.

Because these commentaries are so engrossing, it is tempting to jump around. If you are a riddle-lover, than jumping to the chapter on Gollum is a must. Rateliff provides sumptuous and intriguing tidbits about riddles written in Old English as well as in Mother Goose. If the background of the Ring tickles your wonderment, then we find sources ranging from Plato's Republic to H.G. Wells' Invisible Man, as well as many other influences.

Like the winding path Bilbo takes, under mountains and through the air, readers of "The History of The Hobbit," will find that they will want to visit all the spots that Bilbo did with greater understanding and renewed joy.

great resource - but use footnotes! 3. November 2012
Von NardiViews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
For some reason, Christopher Tolkien did not extend his History of Middle-Earth scholarship to the Hobbit. Rateliff provides an invaluable contribution by chronicling J.R.R. Tolkien's writing of his first and arguable best novel.

In many respects, the early drafts of the Hobbit do not differ much from the published version. The first phase of the draft (most of which are covered in this volume) remains startlingly similar to the final book. The key plot elements - from the unexpected party to the trolls to Beorn - are all present. There are a few minor differences, particularly the names (I won't spoilt the surprise, but Gandalf and Thorin go by different aliases).

In the second volume, the end of the second phase of the draft and third, and fourth phases deal with the latter half of the Hobbit story, and boy were there some changes. Bard wasn't the original dragon-slayer - not by long shot! It's fascinating to see how Tolkien originally envisioned the story and how much it differs from the final version.

Finally, the book covers the fifth phase, Tolkien's attempt to rewrite the Hobbit in 1960 to make it better fit the style of Lord of the Rings. Ultimately, Tolkien only got to Rivendell and most of the changes only affect the tone, not the plot, of the story. Still, it's a fascinating "what if".

I took off one star for something that bugged me throughout Rateliff's book. Rateliff supplements Tolkien's drafts with hundreds of detailed endnotes at the end of each chapter commenting on the text. These are generally very insightful, but because they're endnotes it's difficult and quite frustrating to have to flip back and forth to see how the comment relates to the text. This is especially so because the endnotes refer to very specific language or details in the text. The book ought to have used footnotes, or sidenotes such as those found in the Annotated Hobbit, so that readers can read the note right after reading the relevant text.

Other than that quibble, this is a MUST for any Hobbit fan.

Deeply fascinating and insightful this illuminating book is a must-read for all JRR Tolkien fans 20. Mai 2013
Von Lucinda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Similarly to `The History of Middle Earth' series (13 books in total) this book examines in detail `The Hobbit' in regards to how this children's story came into being and how it grew. First published on 21st September 1937, the Hobbit has become more than simply a `fireside story' but something containing great meaning and value to many readers, both young and old. With the recent release of Peter Jackson's film adaptation (part 1: the Hobbit ~ an unexpected journey), now more than ever people are interested in the details behind Bilbo's journey to the lonely mountain and of Dwarves and Dragons. This is the first installment within a 2 volume collection, which presents the original manuscript of The Hobbit accompanied by John D. Rateliff's lively commentary.

This book looks behind Tolkien's tale to explore those themes hidden within, as well as noting those changes that have occurred over the years to the original publication. Ratecliff looks at each chapter in turn and looks at why changes were made and how they reflect Tolkien's ever-growing concept of Middle-Earth. `Riddles in the dark' with Bilbo and Gollum has to be one of the most significant parts of the Hobbit, and so I enjoyed reading into this part very much and finding out more about the finding of the One Ring. The enchanting tale of Hobbits is brought vividly to life in this enlightening guide to Tolkien's spellbinding story, which delves into such detail and depth. Complete with full-color illustrations done by JRR Tolkien and photographs, this really is a beautiful book and something to treasure!

I value and rate this book very highly, due to its captivating content and exquisite cover and images inside. If you are looking for an assured, accurate read relating to J.R.R. Tolkien's `The Hobbit' then the history behind it makes for great reading.

Great Book for those who bought this because they love Tolkien 23. Mai 2009
Von M. Gaudet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I recommend reading the story first then reading it a second time to read the text notes and commentary because it is difficult and distracting to do both at the same time at least for me. I had the same problem with Christopher Tolkien's history of middle earth series.

One of the problems i have here is unsubstantiated claims based on opinion and not fact by the author being influenced by Dunsany. Had this been the case i think Christopher Tolkien would have at least mentioned it in passing in his series of books edited from his fathers manuscripts.

As long as you can separate fact from inference in reading this book i think you will enjoy it. I would have preferred Christopher Tolkien's version to be in the history of middle earth series, but since he decided not to do the hobbit this is the second best option.

A mistake on his part i believe since John Rateliff's two books on the history of the hobbit illuminate the connections it has to the rest of tolkien's legendarium. Particularly evidenced in connection to the Silmarillion and the Lord of the Rings.

I would have prefered a more in depth dicussion of tolkien's love of the norse sagas and his connection to the Beowulf poet.

But i supposed a beowulf gloss can wait the clamored for but not released tolkien translation of beowulf if it ever is released.
