Re: Dodgy Children of Hurin Bookplates on Ebay

Subject: Re: Dodgy Children of Hurin Bookplates on Ebay

Waterstones had very large quantities of both the Trade and Deluxe Edition on the first day, it looked to me like at least 1000 Trade copies and about 300 Deluxe, so I'm also struggling with how they ran out.

The signed bookplates were on big rolls. It looked to me like Waterstone's staff applied these to the books as people went into the store, which is why they ended up in the UK Deluxe copies and not just the Trade editions (they had stated that only the first 50 people in the queue would get a trade copy with a bookplates).

I'm also intrigued that it would be very easy to move a trade bookplate to a Deluxe copy
