    The Smaug picture made me take my The Hobbit book and look for illustrations there.

    Mine copy was published in 1991: https://picasaweb.google.com/114434453059906458473/Hobit#5741599095389995602
    It’s the second edition, the first one was published in 1978. So illustration by Jiri Salamoun are an year older than me 🙂 Smaug: https://picasaweb.google.com/114434453059906458473/Hobit#5741599272059178162

    I remember exactly the moment I bought the book in a near bookshop, it was some kind of “law of attraction” because I hadn’t had any idea in that time who Tolkien was as almost anybody in my country. The Lord of the Rings was prohibited literature in the Czech Republic till 1989.
