I have a copy (actually a lot, I am sending a stack to someone in Germany to distribute to people there as well).

It reads like a collection of wikipedia articles (none are attributed to authors), but has a lot of nice photographs in it (about 30% from the movies or other media properties, the rest of locations, Tolkien himself, some other family, WWI, etc.). It has some of Emil's work from lotrproject.com included in it as well (hopefully with permission).

It is 99 pages, $10.99

Definitely M. Simont. I will look to see if the full name is called out anywhere.

I thought some of you would enjoy this cartoon in the Nov 29, 1954 edition of Newsweek with the release of Fellowship of the Ring.

I conversed with the author of the Wikipedia article, and here is his clarification for the library binding states seen:

There are, in fact, library bindings that have a silk-screen of Hobbiton as it appears on the American first edition dust jacket and as the frontispiece. That is what “mimics the first edition dust jacket” refers to.

As for a hobbit on the front boards, I have seen library bindings with: The bowing hobbit at the upper right, as in the publisher’s front board; bowing hobbit in the center; and a sort of Dutch elf (at least, wooden shoes and Dutch boy’s garb) in the center, as in the eBay lot you referenced.

I am not sure this was ever released by HM as a hardcover to the trade - the only copies I am aware of are all trade paperbacks. It is quite possible that HM gave the materials to a book club for them to produce a hardcover version of. I will try to dig a little deeper.
