Does anyone (Beren?) know the difference between the standard and deluxe editions of the forthcoming "A Tolkien Tapestry"?

Thanks

Because most countries are an a depression at the moment and book prices are being hit, they are not essential purchases.

Also we have not seen any details of condition of this item (it would have to be in immaculate condition to get these prices) or anything related to provenance as yet.

It seems the best approach is to ignore this website, thanks for the info

I have seen the Ringers film and garm's review is spot on, awful and to be avoided.

I believe this value to be correct and having sold several (similar) books in the last 6 months I can tell you this is an accurate estimate! Inflation by one Swiss purchaser had nothing to do with that... There is a high demand and VERY FEW signed copies available, by the way in this condition it is extremely RARE! Why are you so surprised?

I can find at least 4 persons who will buy this book right away at this estimate!

I'd have to question the valuation, £50,000 for a signed Hobbit, you are not going to get this today, a Swiss purchaser vastly inflated these prices in recent years, but they were association copies.

Can anyone who sees this item, let us know the provenance of the item?
