Have created a FAQ on the new Tolkien book:
http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/8 ... _of_Sigurd_and_Gudrun.php

Most interesting is the extent of 384 pages, the introduction by Tolkien - a lecture on Norse Legends, the confirmation that this is completely written by Tolkien, it will contain a few illustrations by artist Bill Sanderson, will be available in HB, Deluxe and Super Deluxe Edition, Audio CD and Downloadable audio as well.

The book will be released worldwide! Also in the US by Houghton Mifflin on May 5th.

They clearly haven't seen many copies if that's the best one! Sheesh! I've got a Billings copy that looks absolutely brand new (it did spent 25+ years in a box of GA&U books that apparently got forgotten about - thus avoiding anything nasty like sunlight or moisture) and cost me about 20 quid. A faded copy like that can't be worth more than a tenner (if that).

The Silmarillion 'Probably the best copy we have seen'

And with all the photo's, they still don't show the most important part of the copyright page ... Billing or Clowes?

It was very regimented, when you went into the store they (Harper-Collins staff and Waterstone's staff) asked which books you wanted to buy (people early in the queue could get two books), I got both editions. You then queued to see Alan Lee who signed the book, you then went to the checkout.

Waterstones were discounting the books on that day as well, have checked the receipt and my copy of the Trade edition signed by Christopher Tolkien & Alan Lee was £15 (reduced from £18.99)

Originally only the first 50 copies of the Trade Edition were meant to have the book-plate but this was overturned on the day, which is good as it enabled me to get the Deluxe Edition as well.

I left at about 1pm, having got up at 3am to get there so did not see Bernard Hill at all, no huge loss to me as he has nothing to do with the books. I did see Alan Lee, David Brawn and Adam Tolkien though but have no idea how many editions they signed.

I suspect that Adam did not sign many, as he did seem uncomfortable at the event, he said very little in the Q&A, most of the questions were answered by Alan & David. I got into trouble as I asked most of the questions. He did not look keen to sign bookplates.
