While the Tolkien Estate was always very protective for adaptations of Tolkien works, there was made a very radical serialization of The Hobbit, which appeared in a British magazine called ‘Princess’ that aimed at teenage girls.
The story was split up into fifteen installments and issued on a weekly basis between October 10, 1964 and January 16, 1965.
The covers of the magazine can now be called vintage and the illustrations by Ferguson Dewar where very original and even funny.
The text of the Hobbit was very successfully reduced to a minimum by cutting out a lot of parts.
Very light age toning, almost mint condition, small damages on top edge of the magazines, some edges little bumped.
All in archival protective sleeves.
Overall Very Good Plus condition, complete and tight.
Princess Magazine is now hard to find and serious Tolkien collectors are willing to spend a lot of money on a complete collection. A complete set rarely comes up for sale and any of these are hard to find.
