At least 10% of the 100 are being sold through this company on ebay, at a large markup on HarperCollins price or Amazons.

Description: This lavish gift box of Tolkien's seminal works comprises five deluxe slipcased editions - The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, The Children of Hurin, and Tales from the Perilous Realm. With an individual retail value of GBP340, this quintet represents a saving of GBP90, and only 100 sets have been made.


My mathematics is not very good, I can't reconcile £340-£90=£397.69
