Both Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien and The Art of The Lord of The Rings contain JRRT's artwork for LOTR. How do they compare to each other? Does one have more images? Any quality issues?

These are very different books, Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien was the first book to come out, apart from yearly calendars, that contained Tolkien's illustrations, but has been very much superseded by Scull & Hammond's excellent three books on Tolkien's illustrations, J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator, The Art of the Hobbit and The Art of the Lord of Rings.

To answer your question on images, a lot more in these books and a much more comprehensive description about the images than is in Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien, and on quality, all four are very good.

From a Tolkien as an illustrator point of view, I would go for Scull & Hammond's books first, but as a collector then all four of them.
