Help: Tolkien Deluxe Edition Collection Possibilities?

Hi, I have a few questions that I have regarding two different deluxe editions that were recently released by Harper Collins:

A) The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, The History of Middle Earth Vol. I, II, III -> These are the ones originally priced at 100 pounds each

B) The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, The Children of Hurin -> These are the ones originally priced at 60 pounds each, and were also available as the Tolkien Deluxe Edition Collection of 500 copies

So here are my tough questions:

1) Can we assume that deluxe edition A is complete, meaning The Children of Hurin (and Tales from the Perilous Realm) will probably not be released as deluxe edition A?

2) Is the following link of Tales from the Perilous Realm deluxe edition B?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tales-Perilou ... oks&qid=1213487448&sr=8-4

3) Is Tales of the Perilous Realm related to the original four books for it to be released as deluxe edition B?

4) History of Middle Earth Vol. I, II, III originally started getting released since 1983, meaning it's like the 25th anniversary right now, and they are definitely related to the original four books, so are there any plans for them to be released as deluxe edition B?

5) What about other books from Tolkien that are related to the original four books for them to be released as deluxe edition B in the future?

I know I'm asking quite a few questions at once, but I'm sure there are other people wondering about these just as much as I am, so any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Thanks for that guys.

How pre-publication do you reckon review copies are? A couple of weeks? (falling between dummy copies & publication copies).

I have a copy of Carpenter's Biography with a GA&U review slip. They were a standard A&U publishing tool - Sir Stanley Unwin describes them in his book, The Truth About Publishing.

Found this book on Amazon The Legend of a Hero Beowulf Illustrated by John Howe Retold by Nicky Raven.

I bought the slipcased version and the illustrations from John are fantastic as always and very reminiscent of his Tolkien work.

The Professor gets a brief mention at the end in John's notes on the book.

I had a copy of the US Silmarillion with review slip (it has since found another home, but I kept a photocopy of the review letter for research purposes.)

I have also seen a lot of review copies for the US HOME series. There are also a couple of first edition LOTR review copies floating around (in the Marquette collection, etc.) that are essentially galleys. I don't recall seeing a copy of the review letter with them, but I will go back and check what I have tucked away. I haven't seen anything for the Hobbit.
