Mine arrived a couple of days ago too, I was a little surprised to click your link and see that HC describe it as 300 pages as opposed to the actual 157 pages it is.

A rather big difference if a person orders it from them and gets half the book they expected.

Wow that guy is living in dream land with those prices.

Surely nobody is crazy enough to spend that kind of money?

Received the new book yesterday, http://www.tolkien.co.uk/product/9780008131395/A+Secret+Vice, not had a chance to read much of it yet, but was fascinated to find that 'A Secret Vice' was first delivered to The Johnson Society at Pembroke College in November 1931 by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Tolkien also attended their sixtieth anniversary dinner that year in March, which is not mentioned in the book

More madness from the same seller. He has quite a few books up and prices are - without exception in the case of the ones with the David Miller slipcases - completely absurd.

These definitely seem to be getting cheaper, finally (although they might have a little way to come down still). I picked up a near-fine unread copy (only issue is that the "Exodus" lettering on the spine has faded from orange to yellow) for $118 on eBay. Quite possibly the only book I will buy this year, so I'm happy enough at the price paid.
