Yes "Tolkien" is a trademark.

You can see the trademark registrations:
here: http://www.ipo.gov.uk/tmcase/Results/4/EU002843332

And especilay the "Tolkien" trademark:
here: http://www.ipo.gov.uk/tmcase/Results/1/UK00002386666

As described in the registration trademark. Here is the list of goods that "Tolkien" trademark could be aply:

"Class 6
Decorative articles made of bronze and common metal; figurines of bronze and common metal.
Class 14
Articles of jewellery; trinkets worn on the person; costume jewellery; badges of precious metal; watches; clocks.
Class 21
Glassware, china, porcelain and earthenware; articles of glass, china, porcelain and earthenware for household use; mugs, cups, crockery, ornaments and figurines made of glass, china, porcelain and earthenware; goblets not of precious metal.
Class 25
Clothing; casual clothing; T-shirts and sweat shirts; headwear; scarves; gloves; fancy dress costumes.
Class 26
Novelty and souvenir badges for wear, not of precious metal.

Publishing books using Tolkien's name in covers is not a matter of trademark registration. Otherwise Tolkien Estate would have the work to sue millons of authors for using the name Tolkien in cover.

This kind of debate I find interesting because I'm a lawyer. I see no reason to bother Cathleen Blackburn with this matter, but certly I will contact her before the publication of this books, in respect to Tolkien Estate and for safe of the Tolkien's books that already have been work with their permission.

But the question of the topic is about other books you know that could be added to this list. Could someone here help me or do you prefer talk about aplications of law?

If you do not like I dont want to argue about it, since is a matter of personal taste.

The books edited together, at least for me, will be a good addition, since it allows me to understand some sources of Professor Tolkien.

Copyright: There is no problem, since will not use any text written by Tolkien without permission of Estate. The only thing really coming from Tolkien is his name in some part of backcover or frontcover. And names are not copyrighted.

There are already books like that. As the Penguin publisher has already made​​, but they published just few books.
