Features Thror’s Map and the Map of Wilderland on the endpapers. Includes five colour illustrations in addition to the eight standard black and white illustrations.

Christopher Tolkien’s Foreword reproduces two pages from the manuscript of The Hobbit, together with six further illustrations and several extracts from letters written by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The red stripe makes it to the edge of the upper cover, so this edition is likely to have been printed with the 2nd Impression of the Unwin Hyman 50th Anniversary Edition.

One copy of the 2nd Impression of the Unwin Hyman 50th Anniversary Edition has been seen in a Guild Publishing jacket.
