The authorized edition published in the 1960's by Ballantine with Tolkien's blessings, although he complained about the artwork, and we can certainly understand his not caring for the "lions and emus" and the "tree with bulbous fruit" etc. These are sometimes referred to as the "Hippie Edition" with their far out and groovy artwork by Barbara Remington.    - thanks to Goldberry for this tidbit.  With it, I am also including an image of the original box the set was marketed in.
