Attached are some images found online of the bookends, showing the trade dustjacket spine, and the gift edition dustjacket spine. All of the actual sets I have seen have had the gift edition dustjacket. I think the other is a promotional picture taken by the publisher before the set was released and the dustjacket design settled.

Attaching the color map images here as I think they are useful. I don't think the colored sections were "overlays", it appears that the map was drawn with color forests (green) and water (blue) at the least, and then some black and white copies were made off the color originals...?

That definitely sounds like it. I guess maybe some were made without the color overlays?

Here is the relevant text from Green Dragon #4 (March 1968):

This is an enlarged version of the map in the hardcover LotR with additional color overlays and the routes of all the characters marked on it. Unfortunately this is on VERY large paper which would stick out of the mailing tube by about one inch. Now the map does have a very large white border so that one inch could be trimmed or folded over for mailing with small loss.
