The reply I got regarding Remembrancer back in 2009 was:-

We published the book you are asking about. It was written by Merlin’s father. We only printed about 250 copies which would explain why you have had so much difficulty in getting hold of a copy. Merlin has it in mind to try to get it set up on a print on demand basis and when and if this happens we will be happy to let you know. In the meantime I’m afraid the only option is second-hand booksellers.
Best wishes and thank you for your interest.

I got an automated email from Abebooks last week too. It arrived in my inbox at ~16:00; but when I went to the link (when I got in from work at ~17:30) it had clearly already been sold. Another email quickly followed this first one; it didn't contain an active link either --presumably sold very quickly.

Damn hard to locate Jlong. The copy on eBay Trotter was sold by Daeron's in March 2007: it went for £158. Only copy I've ever seen on eBay...

The printing numbers & history regarding Rayner's The Making of the Lord of the Rings produced by Wim is also quite complicated. I'm not sure if Wim can quite remember!
