Where would you place the value of the Super Deluxe "Children of Hurin" and "Sigurd and Gudrun" editions?


I don't think we have any ideas on sales for the Super Deluxe "Sigurd and Gudrun", but I think they are not selling well. I think they will be remaindered at a very low price, probably less than £100 before very long.

Christopher Tolkien is a human being; same as the rest of us. He's also a nice bloke, and the idea of people waiting for his death in order to see the price of their possessions go up in value frankly makes me feel a little sick. Personally, I'd like to see a cap on this sort of thing.


I entirely agree, I'd like to see Christopher Tolkien around for as long as possible, Tolkien fans and collectors owe a huge debt to Christopher (e.g. 12 volumes of The History of Middle-Earth, a huge achievement), I know that like most collectors on this forum, I will be very upset when Christopher is no longer with us, certainly not celebrating that my books have gone up in value.

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. Since you can clearly pick up both for about £245 if you're canny, £500 Buy-It-Now would sell (--you would think?); depending on how much of a loss your willing to make. (If it's £'s you're after, there's a couple of other books you could part with! )
