There was an Italian edition of The Annotated Hobbit that had cover artwork used without the artist's (Ron Ploeg I believe) permission, and was promptly removed from sale and destroyed when this was pointed out so not many copies exist. Here's one on eBay (no comment on asking price, just good to see a copy of a scarce edition).

These editions that get pulled because of basic due diligence not having been done always amaze me. They do make for great collectors items, though.
