Thank you. I found a copy of the book itself (cant afford the gift set right now) on ebay and bought one. Im looking forward to checking it out.

Hi,

Just wondering would anyone have an idea who "A.N" from the attached dedication photo might be?

It appears in a 1962 First Edition Tom Bombadil.

Many thanks.

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?
