What is the publication date of "The Hobbit: 70th Anniversary Edition"?

The obvious answer would be: 70 years after its first publication. 1937+70= 2007. Isn´t it?

But I've found several websites with alleged 70th anniversary editions from 1995.

For example:

Play.com

And this it not the only website with similar info. Am I missing something?

Hi everyone, I'm hoping that someone here can help me identify one of my Tolkien posters. Its from the late 60s and Its written in the Elvish language. At the bottom left in small print it says "The first advertisement in the Elvish Language" Then at the bottom right it says "Camden Records" Thank you

...

If someone can translate the poster for me , Id really appreciate it ...


First question: that is not an Elvish language. It's just English language written with runes (cirth. More specifically: angerthas).

It is something like:

nw rekord
nw bookh
JRR TOLKIEN
speeks and
I z set to
my uuzek

I write a double e, o and u to long vowels.

I hope it will be helpful.
