Having watched the programme about 10 minutes are devoted to Tolkien with mention of The Hobbit and Tolkien's original illustrations and then a small interview with Alan Lee about illustrating The Lord of the Rings.

I was unfortunate enough to be made redundant last week, so neither for me at the moment

You beat me to it, garm - I saw that early this morning, and was going to mention it here!

It still states on the FAQ on the website that it is a numbered edition and I expect that they intended it be numbered but neglected to ask Alan to number them.

There is no real value in owning this book over the £20 cheaper copy on Amazon (as it would be easy to get Alan to sign the book) and I once again feel Harper Collins have let down individuals like ourselves by overcharging for a non-exclusive copy of the book.

I might ask Trading Standards about this.

But you won't be able to differentiate using the ISBN. As both copies will have both ISBN's on the copyright page. Yes/No?

Basically this 'first 500 off the press' claim will become a mute point once these books on are on the open market; making me ask -why bother? Or why were they not numbered? (Or different in some small way.) Just seems like a this wasn't really thought through...
