Everybody knows the story, so I really won't bother explaining. Instead, I'll focus on this particular edition.

This is actually the 75th anniversary edition, not the 70th anniversary ed of the Hobbit as it is advertised on amazon.co.uk.

Cover-to-cover description follows.
+ book jacket reproduces Tolkien's own design for the first edition (the sun and the dragon are red as originally intended), the colors on the jacket are not so saturated. It really gives the feel of color pencil drawing. Very nice, I love it.

+ Thror's map on the inner side of the cover: background of the map is yellowish (looks like parchment); runes on the left, rune marking the entrance and Smaug's drawing are in red. Love it.

+ preface by Christopher Tolkien excerpted from the 50th anniversary edition

+ table of contents, list of illustrations, notes on the text

+ author's original illustrations included, the colored ones are on harder type of paper

+ when you read a chapter, left page has "The Hobbit" in the header and <chapter_name> in the header of the right page, the fontsize is normal, not too small

+ first chapter of The Lord of the Rings is included in smaller font, doesn't really take up that much space at all (11 pages)

+ map of Wilderland: background color imitates parchment, important names in dark blue

Overall I am very pleased with this edition.
