This week's lucky find for me: a reasonably nice issue of

The Microcosm Spring 1923
http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=11740

for under $8.

Well, altho' not stated anywhere on the site, HarperCollins are still willing to sell CoH with the 30% discount --as a new member here phoned & asked them; & they obliged. That's £245. I'd be very surprised, frankly, if they wouldn't apply this discount to S&G.

I wouldn't worry about missing out. If they dump all the stock to the market discounted, you will end up getting a good deal later on. The market for the book is limited. They won't pulp them jst because they can't get top dollar. If you want one quicker, make HC an offer (at least 100 off). They may well accept, especially as the original price was 250 when they first came out.

I recently purchased the deluxe limited edition of The Children of Húrin from HarperCollins (#230 much to my surprise). Being very impressed by it's quality I was considering purchasing the deluxe limited edition of The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún too.

However, after reading through some old threads on this forum I've learned that this book doesn't sell so well (presumably). Yet it is still listed for £350 at tolkien.co.uk. I really want the book but I don't want to pay £350 if I can get it for half that price two years from now.

So my question is if anyone can make an educated guess on what will happen with this book if it keeps selling like this (max 25 copies per year?).

I worry especially that they will eventually just purge the complete stock and I'm missing out on a potential great book.

Thanks for the extremely detailed info on the price history of the HoMe series and for confirming that the seller is probably legit. I might take his offer if I can talk the price a little down :) This is a very useful site btw. I've been going though some of the older threads and learning a lot. Thanks again.
