In reply to your first post. I don't think I have review copies from any of the earlier editions, but have a few from more recent publications (all with review slips):
1992 Tolkien Family Album
1998 Silmarillion, illustrated by Ted Namsmith
2002 History of Middle Earth - 3 Vols Large Print
2007 Hobbit 50th Anniversary
2007 Children of Hurin (US Edition).
And of lesser interest, review copies of various books of Tolkien Criticism.
In reply to your second question, I always assumed (though am not absolutely 100% certain) that review copies were just part of the First Print Run and as such no different from a regular first print and just sent out for review prior to the actual publication date.
