I have the print on demand edition, and it included a printed version of Tolkien's signature on the title page, much like how the grey collector's / cloth edition of The Hobbit from 2013 does as well.

I have some in my "do not read" section [books reserved for collecting and not taking the plastic off, where applicable], though not many and nothing old or notable.

I have The Hobbit collector's edition, as it's called. That's the green one in the slipcase with slight green tint to the paper. Here's a link here....

https://www.amazon.com/Hobbit-Collecto ... ords=hobbit+collector%27s

I also have the US Lord of the Rings 50th anniversary deluxe edition.

http://www.bookdepository.com/The-Lor ... -R-Tolkien/9780618517657.

I have the Reader's Companion [based on what came with the 50th anniversary box set, which is a 'mirrored' publication [HMH & HC have printed an identical book], that I'll 'pair' with the above mentioned Lord of the Rings deluxe.

Finally, I also have HMH's hardback Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales. Those maps are spread over two pages and aren't fold out.

all the titles I mentioned aren't my reading copies, and are for "collecting purposes."

Excellent! If you're selling, I'm buying!

I would definitely like to see other Tolkien Middle-earth books done up like that!

The edition I can recommend is The Lord of the Rings 60th anniversary boxed set, with the Reader's Companion.

It features the most accurate text yet [I can count only TWO errors in my entire set, that are known.], they're hardback, 3 books (plus Reader's Companion), feature Tolkien's artwork for the dustjacket covers, and fold out maps. To top it all off, that set matches The Hobbit 70th anniversary, and the current UK editions of The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales, in hardback.

That's my reasoning behind I wanted, and got, that as my current reading copies. It all depends on what you're after though, but that is all around a great set.
