Another £40? It's just that --another £40, down the pan, when you could be buying a nice early set of LotRs, etc. The print run for this was over 4000. Just read that: 4000. All those unpriced copies kicking around: these are some of the 1500 that went to BCA. Although they went on to sell (presumably priced) another 500 or so --there were still 2000 trade editions. The idea that this title is rare or scarce or uncommon is plainly false. That a book that cost £25 at the time is now worth ten times this, is inflated pricing. MR used to be super expensive --it isn't now. The same can happen to WotJs & PoME. I'll wait. I don't feel any inclination to splash out £200+. With the new HarperCollins POD titles too --it makes no sense for prices to go up. If anything they should go down. But, if you want to spend £240, fair enough.
