The going rate on eBay for S&G would appear to be £170...

The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún - Deluxe Edition

Deja vu indeed alpingloin! First of all he's (Wellinghall) asking about buying them; then he wants to get rid of them!

Many thanks, Trotter!

(I tried first with the search function, but must have missed it - sorry!)

Today I ordered the Farmer Giles of Ham anniversary edition (HarperCollins), edited by Hammond and Scull, from a Swedish internet bookshop. The product description did not mention which anniversary, and the image of the cover of the book was too small to read the text. Now, I'm being a little confused on the alternative covers I've seen on Amazon.uk:

Amazon.uk

The cover of this edition clearly says 60th Anniversary Edition, and it makes sense since the edition is said to be published in December 2008. However, since the product description says: "This is the 50th anniversary edition...", I wonder if any new material was added to the 60th Ann. Ed.?

In early 2009, long after the rush, one eBayer sold CoH (#35) & S&G (#41), both super deluxe signed, together (in one auction) for £705. BH


That was me, Khamul. I sold those at the end of June / beginning of July of 2009. I had picked up several of the Super Deluxe COH when it was released, so I had a couple extras on the shelf. The Super Deluxe Sigurd and Gudrun had just been released in May and I bought only a single copy of that book, being a little skeptical of its resale potential. I actually only received my copy (#41), a couple of weeks before I sold it. I opened it, inspected it, decided that I didn't like it very much, and thought that I would get the best return if I sold it right away. In fact, I offered the book for sale with #35 COH in order to help it sell faster.

I still have a copy of the standard deluxe edition of S&G, but I came to the conclusion that the Super Deluxe S&G was not made to the same quality standards as the SD COH, nor was it as striking of a book.

As I typed this, I had a bit of deja vu:
