well I went in at £201 which seemed OK until 10 seconds to go when it shot up to £404! Couldn't part with that much I'm afraid. Shame, was excited about that all day!

Hi
I am lucky enough to have both of these books. The COH is in my opinion a nicer book but maybe others may disagree. I think Christopher Tolkiens signature is a good investment but maybe not at £350. Until recently Harper Collins had up to 30% off as I recall so maybe hold fire.
They do come up on ebay every now and again which is how I brought my for circa £200 each. Indeed a Lof S went for £175 in May!

If I was you I would give serious thought to going for the signed Silmarillion currently on ebay. I am guessing it will go for £2-400 so maybe within your budget?

If not my advice would be wait till right price comes along.

Good luck

Hi everyone,
New here but by no means new to Tolkien. I have been considering purchasing one of the Harper Collins luxury editions of Children of Hurin or Legend of Sigurd. At £350 for one of the limited 500 prints, and being signed by Christopher Tolkien, this seems a decent price to me (a novice at collecting).

http://www.harpercollins.co.uk/Titles ... r-r-tolkien-9780007319725

I guess my question is do you guys see these as worth having for future profit. I know CT no longer partakes in book tours and signings, so his signature is getting rarer and rarer, and I would quite like one of these to sit around in my collection, especially if (as it seems to me), it would increase a bit in value.

Thanks
