Der Hobit (The Hobbit) by T.R.R. Tolkien Yiddish Transliterated Edition

Der Hobit (The Hobbit) by T.R.R. Tolkien Yiddish Transliterated Edition


Now the book is available for the first time in Romanized Yiddish, in a superb translation by Barry Goldstein. The book includes all the drawings and maps by the author.

This beloved fantasy classic for readers of all ages is about a hobbit called Bilbo Baggins who is whisked off on an unexpected journey by Gandalf the wizard and a company of thirteen dwarves. "The Hobbit" is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar. Encounters with trolls, goblins, dwarves, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon, Smaug, and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of Five Armies are just some of the adventures that befall Bilbo. Bilbo Baggins has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals of children's fiction. Written by Professor Tolkien for his own children, "The Hobbit" met with instant critical acclaim when published.
