For my personal copies (not the most recent editions), I much prefer Foster's guide, as every entry has page references to the original source. Tyler doesn't do that (again, in my copy - perhaps a more recent edition has added this).

[Edit: If helpful, you can "look inside" the Tyler volume for an idea of what it contains on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2jM1d0B ]

I tend not to use these references much any more. Either/both are good to have, though, in my opinion.

All I can add to the conversation is that the Wikipedia article & author have been referenced (with praise) by the article author Steven M. Frisby in Scull/Hammond's "The Tolkien Collector" issue #30, but I have not seen one of these orange bindings myself. I will keep digging to see if I can find out more.

I went to check my copy, and realized that mine is fully trimmed so I can't answer definitively! I am pretty sure the deckle is correct though.

deckle edges - The natural rough and uneven edges of book pages when they have not been trimmed flush. The binding of handmade paper can also produce this decorative effect. Also known as uncut.

yapp - A style of binding where the edges of the paper extend beyond all three edges of a book. It is named after a London bookseller who invented it around 1860, and is mostly used for books of devotion and verse.

I agree with you St. Troy, the pictured books you specifically asked about are (from what I can tell in the photo) trade editions with the dustjackets removed.

There have been deluxe editions issued for the HoMe volumes, see here: http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/gallery.php?subsection=81

The other volumes that you asked about have not had deluxe editions put out by HarperCollins.
