Apologies, that shows you how up-to-date I am with current HC offers! Altho', £245 for a Super Deluxe CoH is pretty good. I'm sure most of us paid full price for this at the time (many of you guys seem to buy two copies at the time!); and, of the two, CoH is the nicer I'd say. (Legendarium proper, and a far more aesthetically pleasant colour. That brown thing...)

So your saying if I gave you a copy of the Super Deluxe CoH you'd consider a swap?... No, seriously, I don't have the money. Plus you said you'd sent some photographs of it. But you're camera is clearly in need of replacement .

The thing is, HC have got a 30% sale on now ... which voers everything *except* the super deluxe Sigurd & Gudrun!

And nice try, Khamul, but I'd trade even my super deluxe Children of Hurin for a different Silmarillion ...

Yeh, I'd wait for the predictable HC sale. They'll undoubtedly have 30% again at some point, and the Super Deluxe volumes are never excluded. £245 is not bad with zero postage. Number will be pretty high thought I guess...

You could make that spending pot a little bigger if you'd only sell me that 1978 Silmarillion production mock-up you have squirreled away!

I wonder what the Tolkien estate and Harper Collins feel about these facsimiles?
