I see the odd items going for more than expected (including some of the earlier HC Super Deluxe titles), but for the most part things seem to be dropping. A good example would be the Deluxe HoME books - these are going for way less than 5 years ago. Really high-end items (in the multi-thousands) might not be affected much because those were always purchased by people with more money than brain cells, and those people tend to still have more money than brain cells. I challenge anyone to really see the value of a piece of paper being in the thousands of pounds because someone wrote took a few *seconds* to scribble their name on it. The mid-range stuff seems to be dropping a lot, and the books that are not well priced just sit on eBay month after month.

I'm just enjoying chasing the low-end stuff. Cheap books that are fun to chase and don't hurt the wallet :)

It's a shame the book was selling at the same price as COH but with only a cow leather binding instead of full morocco. Still think I'm going to buy it at the Bookdepository at the reduced price.

I think the price of these books or any others in two years is a "how long (or short) is a piece of string" question. I would say if you can easily afford it and think you will enjoy it, then go ahead and buy now. Don't expect to ever make any money on it. There is a huge economic storm coming and book prices are likely to continue to slide.

Before buying the Super-Deluxe Sigurd and Gudrun, read through all the comments on this thread first, it is not as well made an edition as COH.
