Published by Prisma Boeken, First Published in 1960, 1st Printing, 1960
Dutch Edition of 'De Hobbit of daarheen en weer terug' by Max Schuchart, Utrecht/Antwerpen: Het Spectrum.
This copy has been read, and has a gift note and owner signature inside. Just some minor rubbing to the edges and corners and a little color loss to the edges of the spine.
The text block shows the usual darkening of pages due to age but remains clean otherwise.
'De Hobbit' was translated by Max Schuchart and published in Utrecht/Antwerpen by Het Spectrum in 1960 as part of the 'Prisma' series (no. 529). This translation was based on the 1st printing of 'The Hobbit' by Allen & Unwin in 1955.
The book features the same two maps by Tolkien, 'Thrors kaart' (Thror's Map) on pp. [6-7] and 'Wilderland' on pp. [8-9], with place names translated into Dutch and styled to match Tolkien's calligraphy.
At the end, seven unnumbered pages offer a commentary on 'The Lord of the Rings,' including a Dutch translation of a fragment from 'The Breaking of the Fellowship.'
Overall, this is a fine copy, complete with the original jacket design by Cees Kelfkens, making it a valuable find for any Tolkien collector.
