This revised and expanded edition of Tolkien's own Hobbit-inspired
poetry includes previously unpublished poems and notes, and is
beautifully illustrated by Narnia artist Pauline Baynes. `Here is
something that no devotee of the Hobbit epic can afford to miss,
while awaiting a further instalment of the history of these
fascinating people - a selection [of verses] offered as an `interim
report' to those interested in Hobbit-lore, and to any others who
may find amusement in this mixed bag of old confections.' One of
the most intriguing characters in The Lord of the Rings, the
amusing and enigmatic Tom Bombadil, also appears in verses said to
have been written by Hobbits and preserved in the `Red Book' with
stories of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins and their friends. The
Adventures of Tom Bombadil collects these and other poems, mainly
concerned with legends and jests of the Shire at the end of the
Third Age. This special edition has been expanded to include
earlier versions of some of Tolkien's poems, a fragment of a prose
story with Tom Bombadil, and comprehensive notes by acclaimed
Tolkien scholars Christina Scull and Wayne G. Hammond.
