Deagol is correct in that there were only two editions of Pictures, and then a subset of the pictures are in Artist & Illustrator which you already have.

If you just want to look at the pictures at the same size as the Pictures book, then you could look at Tolkien Calenders.

Parmastahir's site http://www.angelfire.com/tn3/tolkiencalendars/ will show which Calendars contain which pictures.

Thanks Stu and Remy that is very useful.

So from the comments so far

1 - Book of Lost Tales 1 dyed top until the 4th Impression on GA&U copies only.
2 - Book of Lost Tales 2 1st GA&U impression only with dyed top.
3 - Lays of Beleriand 1st Impression GA&U only.
4 - Shaping of Middle-Earth 1st Impression GA&U only.
5 - Lost Road - No copies with dyed top.

Can anyone confirm this is correct?

I have finally started to collect the UK HOME Hardbacks and was wondering if anyone can help with a query.

Did any of these books have dyed coloured top edges when issued?

I had look at the picture of the 'priceless' postcard on Beren's website.

I agree that it is not from Lin Carter and looking at the text it could be from any one of Tolkien's friends or acquaintances.

The date on the stamp appears to the 9th July 1968 and the first line is
"I have been thinking of you a lot hoping everything has gone as well as could be expected in the most difficult circumstances."

I had a look at Hammond's Tolkien Companion and Guide (Chronology) for this period to see what the writer could be consoling Tolkien about.

Quite a lot happened in Spring and Summer of 1968 to Ronald and Edith. They moved from Sandfield Road in Oxford to Bournemouth/Poole at the time of the post-mark on the card.

Tolkien broke his leg on the 17th June and and had an operation and received a lot of sympathy cards from well-wishers, of which this is one.
