Re: Dodgy Children of Hurin Bookplates on Ebay

If one is going to get all pedantic (as I frequently do...) about chronological 'assembly' of these quasi-publication CoH states, then one would need to ask --why would anyone want a US deluxe copy with one of these bookplates?

The assembly of this 'state' (I use, or perhaps mis-use, this term loosely) post-dates the London (Waterstones) and NY (Barnes & Noble) events by several months. None of these copies, whether assembled as intended, or fraudulently assembled, occurred at publication time. Therefore, why the appeal in 'making' one, or buying one?

By all means, if you're a crook, peal one from a UK standard Hb, and re-stick it into a UK deluxe --at least that makes sense.
