I can't answer Your question, maybe some of the dutch members - like DGoeij or Bill the pony - can. However if I were You I would try to read it in english anyway, that way You don't have to deal with problems the translated versions use to have - i.e. different names for peoples or places, translation errors a.s.o.

Welkom!

The website
http://www.tolkienwinkel.nl/
(klik op 'boeken' scroll naar beneden naar vertalingen)

Does list unfinished tales (nagelaten vertellingen), but it does not list any of the HoME books. It's a 'postorderbedrijf' so you can buy stuff from them as well.
I seem to remember, last time I was in the Netherlands, I saw HoME in the english version in a book shop (Scholtens-Wristens) in Groningen, so I guess it would be sold in other cities as well.
I haven't read HoME yet, but in general I'm one of those persons who enjoys Tolkien's books more in english than in dutch, so I bought all of them in english.

Succes ermee, en veel plezier hier op het forum

Ah ok thx,

I have encountered 'nagelaten vertellingen' but i did not know it was Unfinished tales, but i think ill read them in english, but it might be hard sometimes with the 'old' english used in it but well...

Oh and who knowes if 'Lost tales I and II' are a part of the HoMe series and what are they about??

Bedankt voor de reply doei!

Welkom Maarten!

Personally, I haven't seen the HoMe in dutch. In English I've seen them at Waterstone's (Amsterdam, kruising Spui en Kalverstraat).
Like Bill, I prefer the english versions, because it generally feels better than the dutch. Even though LOTR has been translated rather well.

Veel plezier!:D

Yes, they are part 1 and 2 of HoME. I'll leave it to someone who read them recently to tell you exactly what they are about...but if I'm not mistaken they are tales about the early ages (e.g. the tale of Tinuviel), edited by Christopher Tolkien
