De hobbit. Translated by Max Schuchart. Utrecht/Antwerpen: Het Spectrum, 1969. 'Prisma' no. 529. 240 pp. 18.0 x 10.8 cm. The translation is based on the 7th printing of The Hobbit, published by Allen & Unwin in 1955.
Fifth printing is identical to the first printing except for minor details in the preliminaries, the cover layout , and the blurb on the lower cover.
The book has the two maps by Tolkien, Thrors kaart (Thror's Map) on pp. [6-7] and Wilderland on pp. [8-9], with the names of places translated into Dutch and calligraphed in tolkien's style.
At the end of the book, on seven unnumbered pages, is a comment on The Lord of the Rings, with a fragment from 'The Breaking of the Fellowship' starting with 'The day came like fire and smoke' and ending with 'seeking here and there among the rocks and trees' - all of this in Dutch, of course.
