I have a copy of this to dispose of. It is the 1940 Clark Hall edition, ie the first with Tolkein's preface. No jacket, worn boards, some pencil annotations, binding sound. I'm interested in offers above £35 plus p&p.

If anyone is interested, let me know, and I can send you some photos (although these will take a few days to arrange, as I'm away from home at the moment). My email is andrew at avro 707 dot force9 dot co dot uk.

From an email I got from HC:

The exclusive collector's leather-bound edition has been a great success with Tolkien fans, as expected, and there's still time for you to get your copy at our special introductory price of just £250. As with all good things this offer won't last for much longer and will revert to the R.R.P. of £350 at midnight on 30th June 2009, so make sure you don't miss this great opportunity!


I expect it will be discounted by up to 30% from the GBP350 in the future (as happened with CoH SD), but it may be that GBP250(ish) is as good a price as will come along for this any time soon.

Just a few days late (as usual it seems around here for me, and my apologies).

The winners are Brian Maxwell (contributed off the forum) and Ssmmbfcs. Congrats! You both will hear from me via email to set up the shipping of the books.

Stay tuned for another drawing - If I can get it listed in the next few days, it will be for the month of June, so keep your fingers crossed I find more time away from the day job(s)!

Anyway, I ordered 2 copies by phone at the same time and I ended up with copies 38 and 14. Go figure! The allocation of the numbers all seems a little random.


To be honest, it might well be as simple as the way the books are stacked in the warehouse for picking. This coupled with the multiplexing of the phone orders and web orders into the invoicing/order picking system would probably result in something approximating sequential allocation ( becoming more accurate as the number of orders falls off). I imagine doing anything more accurate would simply be more effort than it is worth (and no one ever claimed to be allocating sequentially this time around, anyway).

I've only seen one mention of a number over 50 so far.
