The going rate on eBay for S&G would appear to be £170...

The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún - Deluxe Edition


With the £7.50 postage my estimation of £180 wasn't too bad then! However, I think that price may be misleading as that auction was quite badly listed (in my opinion). For a start, it didn't have 'Tolkien' in the title, so it would only have been found through literally searching for 'Sigurd and Gudrun'. Likewise a casual spectator may not have realised it was the 'Super Deluxe', as it was listed simply as 'deluxe'. Also, the seller described it as 'in publishers packaging', when actually it was shrinkwrapped and sealed (which I think would have caught more attention as I assumed it was just a case of 'we still have the box'. With all that in mind, I would like to think the book was worth a bit more in reality.

Here's a way of finding out - would people here be brave enough to, like I did, post what THEY would realistically be willing to pay for these books right now. As I say, £250 for CoH and £180 for S&G would be my prices - anyone care to join in?

Deja vu indeed alpingloin! First of all he's (Wellinghall) asking about buying them; then he wants to get rid of them!

Many thanks, Trotter!

(I tried first with the search function, but must have missed it - sorry!)

Using the search facility on the site, I found that this question had been asked before.

Today I ordered the Farmer Giles of Ham anniversary edition (HarperCollins), edited by Hammond and Scull, from a Swedish internet bookshop. The product description did not mention which anniversary, and the image of the cover of the book was too small to read the text. Now, I'm being a little confused on the alternative covers I've seen on Amazon.uk:

Amazon.uk

The cover of this edition clearly says 60th Anniversary Edition, and it makes sense since the edition is said to be published in December 2008. However, since the product description says: "This is the 50th anniversary edition...", I wonder if any new material was added to the 60th Ann. Ed.?
