Goblin Feet (first appearing in Oxford Poetry 1915) has been reprinted quite a bit, but I just ran across an early reprint that I hadn't known about before:

The Open Door to Poetry: An Anthology edited by Anne Stokes, First Edition 1931, Charles Scribner’s Sons, pp 304

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270350031523

The eBay auction was rather pricey (and didn't get any bids) - I have seen this volume elsewhere online right now for $10-$20 in various conditions. Just didn't know it had "Tolkein's" Goblin Feet in it. This title isn't mentioned in Hammond or TolkienBooks.net so I thought I would share it (and add it to the guide.)

I have a rather poor copy. It didn't get listed at TolkienBooks as it was only issued in the US. I haven't seen it in a jacket, but there again I haven't been searching for one that hard....

Good point Deagol! I certainly didn't mean to rag on your site.

I will keep an eye out for a jacketed copy just for posterity. Not going to look all that hard either.

I bought this recently which is a book from 1929 which contains Goblin Feet.

The scant bibliographic information on the internet suggests it was published in London though it was printed in USA.

It lacks a dust-jacket so I can't verify the price.

The text differs slightly from Fifty Poems for Children, eg "gray" for "grey"

Other than that I can find no information about it other than some material about the editor.
