Yes that was my plan also. Not collecting all US editions, but only grabbing a few that look really nice.

Thanks for the US Editions site, exactly what I was looking for.

I went over your list:

* LotR 1981 Silver Anniversary Edition - On the fence

* LotR Collectors Edition 1974 - Really like this one

* First Annotated Edition 1988 - IF this is the Hobbit it looks good, there isn't anything comparable in the UK is there?

* Hobbit Collectors Edition 1973 - Very nice

* Hobbit 50th Anniversary Collectors Edition 1987 - Very nice

* Hobbit Eclipse Books 1989, 1990, 1990 - This is interesting a graphic novel of the Hobbit; didn't know they existed. Have to get this too.

* Easton Press Editions - I don't know about Easton Press, don't think their designs are very interesting. Seen these on ebay a lot.

Oh, yes and I do have the US 1/1s of HoME, but then you can't have enough variants of that...

The Only US editions I have are Easton Press. I didn't think I would like them, but turns out I do. I just picked up Fonstad's Atlas of Middle-Earth, and it is a really nice edition.

I'd recommend none.
No, seriously, I don't collect foreign editions...
