A few of the sets that were published at various times using the "Eye" artwork. The owner of the red set claimed they were among the first printings by Unwin.   The dark one is the Fellowship of the Ring, and along with it is the sleeve from the box of that set, with Houghton-Mifflin's name on it; the set had the same pattern with different colors for each title.  As far as I know, the white set is from the mid-1970's.  It came in a red "Eye" box with the 3 titles, or bundled with The Hobbit in a green box with Tolkien's picture of the Lonely Mountain on it.
