I finally found this in a bookstore and had a chance to take a look at it as a potential purchase, but I am holding off for a while. I was disappointed to discover that it was only one picture, and not even a complete map of the areas described in The Hobbit. Mirkwood Forest was the main feature, and along the bottom there was a portrayal of the night of the Unexpected Party, complete with 12 merry dwarves and one bewildered hobbit. Though not a must-have, I intend to eventually get this to hang on the wall of my home library. This thin booklet contains the map and a short section of text, presumably containing details fom the story and explanations of the map. I would recommend this purchase, but it's nothing to get excited about.
