Milwaukee’s Marquette University is adding to its J.R.R. Tolkien Collection.
It’s acquired a first edition, first printing of The Hobbit – one of 1,500 copies published in 1937 of the children’s classic – which includes artwork drawn by Tolkien.
Marquette’s collection includes the original manuscripts of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
