It would be unique, so I'll be very pleased. The whole point really is to get them to take these sort of events more seriously and if they state in future that a book is numbered, then they make sure that it is.

I just checked the set I have and it includes a 4th Impression Silmarillion with the regular £4.95 printed price (no repricing).

Indeed! You must be pretty chuffed with that Beren? Its good to here about TV-makers, publishers, and the Estate working with the collecting community. And, if people are seaking you out, for help in regards to Tolkien books; well, that must be satisfying (exciting even!) indeed. The Collier Collection grows in prominence with every passing day...

(Didn't actually see programme unfortunately; can't get BBC4 reception. Might still be on iPlayer...)

Something else (I find) quite interesting is the mention of the (possibly) re-priced 4th impression of The Silmarillion. I know Deagol lists this as including either a 4th or 5th impression, but I'd be interested in hearing from anyone with this set (Deagol, Beren...) what copy of The Silmarillion their set includes, and whether the printed price has indeed been re-priced or not? And, if so, what is the nature of this re-pricing: price sticker, colour, 'GA&U' etc etc

As for the value: I have a note of one being sold (on eBay) in February 2007 for £475. If I remember correctly the opening price was similarly high, and I think the winning bidder was one of only a few bidders; perhaps the only one. So I think it might go for this price...

Poor old HarperCollins! Trotter, what are you going to do if they do send you a numbered copy!?
