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?

Thanks for the advice, both. I'll see what others have to say, of course, but I think I will hold off just for now. It's not as though the money is exactly burning a hole in my pocket!

Of course, if anyone has something else they want to sell for £350, I might just be your man ...
