The GA&U reprints of Book of Lost Tales Part 2 were not top-stained (or at least I have a 2nd impression floating around in a box somewhere which isn't). With BoLT 1, the topstain continued at least as far as the third impression. No idea about Lays of Beleriand or Shaping of Middle-Earth as I only have 1st/1sts of these.
