Not to take anything away from Stephen Raw's Lord of the Rings maps as collector's items, offered at tolkienmaps.com, but it isn't correct to claim that since they first appeared in 1994 "all subsequent English editions have included them".

For the 50th anniversary edition in 2004, both HarperCollins and Houghton Mifflin reverted to the revised general Middle-earth map Christopher Tolkien drew for Unfinished Tales, the original large-scale map of Rohan, Gondor, and Mordor by Christopher (emended by Houghton Mifflin and later by HarperCollins), and Christopher's original map of a part of the Shire. In subsequent HarperCollins printings and editions, Christopher's maps have been retained. In subsequent Houghton Mifflin printings, Raw's maps are used, except for 'A Part of the Shire' which has remained Christopher's version. Ballantine Books included Raw's general map as of later printings of The Lord of the Rings during the run of the Jackson films, previously using redrawings by Shelly Shapiro.

I have to admit to being disappointed with the size of the maps in the 50th Anniversary Edition and in particular the fold out map in the rear of the book as it is not the same as the original maps in the pre 1980's three volume books.

I would have liked to have the original sized bigger fold out maps in a Deluxe Edition.

I'd really like to see HarperCollins putting back the wonderful fold out large maps that were in the original books in any later printings of this book or any future Deluxe or Super Deluxe LOTR.
