‘The Hobbit’ celebrates 73 Years!

September 21, 2010 at 6:42 am by Celeborn  - 

On September 21, 1937 ‘The Hobbit’ was first published in Great Britain to great success. In fact, it was so successful it took J.R.R. Tolkien a bit by surprise. In a letter to his publishers the following month he commented: “At the moment I am suffering like Mr. Baggins from a touch of ‘staggerment.’” Staggerment, indeed! Little did The Professor know the millions of lives he would touch with his little story about a simple Hobbit who rushed out of his door one day without any money or a handkerchief. Happy 73rd anniversary to The Hobbit!
