I conversed with the author of the Wikipedia article, and here is his clarification for the library binding states seen:

There are, in fact, library bindings that have a silk-screen of Hobbiton as it appears on the American first edition dust jacket and as the frontispiece. That is what “mimics the first edition dust jacket” refers to.

As for a hobbit on the front boards, I have seen library bindings with: The bowing hobbit at the upper right, as in the publisher’s front board; bowing hobbit in the center; and a sort of Dutch elf (at least, wooden shoes and Dutch boy’s garb) in the center, as in the eBay lot you referenced.

I am not sure this was ever released by HM as a hardcover to the trade - the only copies I am aware of are all trade paperbacks. It is quite possible that HM gave the materials to a book club for them to produce a hardcover version of. I will try to dig a little deeper.

Ha! I have had similar "momentary lapses of reason".

I had a panic attack two days ago where I could not find a really rare issue of I Palantir in my fanzine collection, so I had to go through and re-verify my catalog all of them in entirety. Found it! (It is just slightly larger than the other issues, so it got filed somewhere else). Also found one issue of another fanzine that I had forgotten to add to the database, and then happened to find an issue of one fanzine I never knew about! It was tucked inside a different fanzine and somehow stayed there for years and years undetected.

I think that is a good idea. I won't be able to post pictures of my 12th impr. until Sunday at the earliest, if you want to get yours up first.

I have the 12th impression, it matches the price of the third one down, but has the lettering with the black outline like the second one down in the pic above. So I agree the third one down is likely the 11th impression in the TolkienBooks link you think it is.
