The Nielson BookScan data given in "The Decade Round-Up 2000-2009" (in The Bookseller) differs slightly.

Tolkien is 23rd overall by volume (4.9m)
10th overall by value (£47m)
& the only dead author in this (value) top ten list.

The Power of Tolkien's Prose: Middle-Earth's Magical Style by Steve Walker

Has anyone ordered a copy of this? I was just wondering if it was any good, though it seems kind of pricey.

My copy of the HC Deluxe LR (bought about a year ago) is a 2nd printing, it has the additional corrections (including Fréaláf, hamfæst, swift falcon) and the right Ring inscription, but still the old index.
