129 Pounds. Yikes!

Still, at least you have acquired it! I suspect it is by far the least common volume in the UK HoME style of cover.

>I find this book impossible to get hold of. In fact I think they only printed 5 copies to tease collectors like me

>It's was the hardest book to find in my collection. It becamse a kind of holy grail, as it took me several years to find a copy. If I hadn't seen a picture of it, I wouldn't have believed it existed! When I did find it, I was lucky enough to get an unread copy in near perfect condition. It cost 40 pounds, which was seemed fair given its rarity. I would love to know how many copies were printed.

They do exist, I have just got a copy from eBay, wish it only cost £40 though

Does anyone know how many of this edition was printed?

300!

With the addition of the 2009 Elendilion and Parmadili issues to my collection, I have now been able to catalog 300 Tolkien calendars. Thank you to everyone who has helped me discover and collect these. Your support is very much appreciated. You can discover them all at:

I ordered a deluxe Tales from the Perilous Realm on 9 January. It didn't arrive, and my two emails were ignored. I have now made three phone calls to HarperCollins, and finally got a promise that they will send me a copy; but I am not very impressed with them.

Just as an update to finalise this thread, HC have agreed to send me another set to the correct address.

There were a few odd things that didn't quite stack up in the info I got from HC, so I'd recommend anyone ordering from the site just takes screen-shots of the address details as the order is confirmed, especially if you are using different billing and delivery addresses. This is important as the email confirmation they send out does not include any address info.

However, like I say, they have done the right thing, and all is well that ends well.
