I've got and have read the first two of those Jane Gaskell books (albeit not in their Paperback Library Fantasy editions), and The Tritonian Ring has been on my wishlist for a while.

I've got spare copies I could share for a price that would make you happy

There was the Garland fantasy library - and the very under-rated Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural series - some real gems in there!

or the Gollanz Fantasy Masterworks

Weren't there some BallAdFan-like paperbacks from Bantam at around the same period, although not presented as a formal series?

I guess I'm misremembering because all I can find are
Joy Chant's Grey Mane (1982 but in the same world as her BallAdFan entry)
and Tales from Gavagan's bar (1978)

Maybe I'm thinking of Ace...

Ace did have a short run of "fantasy specials" parallel to their sf specials that actually included a bit of fantasy like Le Guin

and Arno had a lost race series and a supernatural and occult series that had some interesting things

>9 Crypto-Willobie:

The timing is too much: do you know Douglas Anderson and pose the question which he answered in the blog post?!

The Federbush and Werfel titles weren't familiar to me, nor (from the list printed at the top of the article) the Reynolds novel.

>10 elenchus:
I do know Doug, but I didn't ask him. And none of these are really the ones I had in mind. Some of the covers do look Ballantinish, for instance the Werfel which looks interesting. One review describes it as "H.G. Wells sends Gulliver to Perelandra" while another calls it "the Brothers Karamazov of science fiction". Hmm...
