How many copies of Lord of the Rings (the book(s)) do you own? Can't Post

I just received my fourth in the mail today -- the 50th anniversary leather-bound one volume. A special Christmas present to myself. Wink (http://www.amazon.com/Lord-Rings-50th-Anniversary/dp/0618517650/ -- our own MrCere has a glowing review posted at Amazon)

I also own:

* A mass-market paperback set in three volumes (plus The Hobbit) from the mid-90s. On this page under "Ballantine Fifth Issue". http://mysite.verizon.net/aznirb/mtr/oop-lotr.html

* The one-volume hardcover with Alan Lee illustrations. I believe this one: http://www.amazon.com/...dos/ASIN/0395595118/

* A one-volume paperback printed in the UK, with an early movie tie-in cover. (No actors or anything, but a movie-style design and "Soon to be a motion picture" or something on it) Ah, here it is: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0007123817/



Those are all that I have at my current house. At my parents' house, though, there is the edition I first read, also a one-volume paperback from the UK. This is not exactly it, but very similar: http://www.tolkienbookshelf.com/...12705154a5fe511f8499 I believe that link contains an earlier version from the 60s, the version I had was probably printed in the mid-70s. That version does not contain all the appendices, only the Tale of Aragorn and Arwen.
