If my memory serves me correctly, the winner was Valhalla??
It was a good price and I should have made the effort to go after it myself.

www.tolkien.co.uk is back again, hardly any difference from before, but the FAQ has changed indicating that the books are not numbered.

Does seem odd that a whole site has to be taken down for a couple of weeks to change a couple of pictures and a couple of lines of text.

Yes, Remy, I agree that it shouldn't require some super aggressive marketing (like put them on Amazon) to sell these out within the next 6 to 12 months. The problem with selling them is that you actually have to have a functioning website in order to sell product. It seems that providing such a site has proven difficult for HC. I suppose I could see them continuing to discount the book for some time (maybe even reduce the price to 300GBP) in order to move the last hundred or so.

Thanks for the information alpingloin.

I am surprised they have sold as far as copy number 340. At a guess (and considering that they can now sell to the USA), this edition may sell out by mid next year. Much quicker than I thought with the price at £350. Of course, Sterling has depreciated dramatically against all other currencies in the past number of months, so I suppose it has been getting cheaper as the year has progressed. And with the additional 10% discount coupon and their large reduction in postage charges (previously £36 to Europe), it has become more reasonable to purchase.

An 'Advance Uncorrected Proof' copy of Lays (Houghton Mifflin), sold on eBay earlier this year for £34 (not sure what it was in $; although I'm sure it was from US.) Don't recall much about it, other than the fact that I'd never seen one; and that the final price was pretty low. Jeremy (Rowns) was (if I recall correctly) definitely in on the bidding; don't recall if he won it tho'...
