Tom Shippey reads excerpt from 'Riddles in the Dark' from 1st edition Hobbit! Can't Post

- with thanks to Trotter and those lovely folk at Tolkien Collector's Guide -

Though only seven and a half minutes long (as opposed to the thirty minutes it take Tolkien himself to read the whole chapter in 'The JRR Tolkien Collection), the brilliant thing about this is that Tom reads the excerpt from the first edition text of The Hobbit, published between 1937 and 1946. Gollum's role and character are quite different to those of every printing of that chapter thereafter, yes precious, quite.
