The History of the Hobbit, Volume 2 (Return to Bag-End)

The History of the Hobbit, Volume 2 (Return to Bag-End) - J.R.R. Tolkien

Part Two of the exhaustively detailed analysis of various drafts and possible sources and influences for The Hobbit. These two volumes are about 3 times as long as the tale itself! Only for very serious Tolkien buffs but definitely has some interesting things. I liked the connections to Celtic mythology.
