Welcome to the forum.

The books that you have are UK first editions of the Lord of the Rings, but later impressions.

I would value them at between £100-£200 GBP, depending largely on the dust wrapper condition and if they are price-clipped.

If they don't have dust wrappers then no more than £50 GBP.

The talk this Tuesday was videoed and for anybody who was unable to attend, you can see it at the link below, a very good talk from the authors of the recent book.

"The Bodleian Library has recently acquired a rare, annotated map of Middle-earth, the fantasy world setting for JRR Tolkien’s novels The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The acquisition was made possible thanks to generous support from the V&A Purchase Grant Fund, the Kenneth Rose Fund and the Friends of the Bodleian."
