I would think that in most cases, the higher priced items are later, but for UK books, on at least one edition of The Lord of the Rings, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=45450, the price was cheaper for a later edition, so does not always hold true.

I was wondering if anyone could give me their thoughts on how effective it is to use the printed price on a book to determine its print date, at least in terms of priority. Is it a reliable indication of which book was printed first if there are no better signifiers of date?

For the little it's worth I can confirm this. This box has the same ISBN as the other more common 'Heroic Tales' Canadian box (with the pictures of Lake Town and Smaug) and contains reprints of the Unicorn Edition of the Lord of the Rings, printed in Great Britain, with the addition of a Canadian price ($4.95) on the top left of the upper cover. The Hobbit included is a reprint of the 1981 Unwin Paperbacks Edition with no discernible differences from the UK edition.

Thank you, and thank you for the link to the super deluxe. That is on my list, though the estimate is quite low I think.
