CoH:Some Available
S&G:Most Available

Realistically, I don't think that it is possible to speculate on this in any way that is anything more than a pure guess. We have no idea how many are being sold each month (if any). I've never seen a "high" number of the S&G for sale on the second hand market, mind, so I would guess that well over half remain unsold.

I've never seen a first American Hobbit, as issued by Houghton Mifflin, without the maps. I have heard about copies which lack the maps, but those were always in library bindings.

Does anyone have any idea or a guess on how many of the 500 limited Super Deluxe Children of Hùrin or Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun are still for sale from HarperCollins or their agents?

I doubt it! I'm no expert, but I know a few and I've helped out one or two, now and again. For instance, in his write-up about the 1st ed. set on the front page at present, David says:

"The Return of the King - 1st UK Edition, 1st impression, the later state with the slipped type and signature mark '4' on page 49, as per Wayne Hammond's revised opinion."

It was I who provided Wayne with the information which led to that revision. That sort of thing.
