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.

It may be that the book was published in the USA (not the UK) which would explain it not being on TolkienBooks.net. Though it looks like maybe one of those goodreads links could be a UK edition? Not sure.

I have a copy of The Fantastic Imagination from 1977 which is quite similar to Over the Rainbow. It collects a fragment or two from a lot of "high fantasy" authors, including "Riddles in the Dark". I think these were quite common in the day, I would have to dig through my notes/etc. to see what other books collected "Riddles" as well. Or even "Goblin Feet", that seemed to appear everywhere for a few years...

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.
