Thanks for letting us know! That's an interesting price indeed, because I've seen much higher prices for the first edition of the Dutch translation (which was the first in the world). For a mint set, prices are going up to 750 euros...

If you do not live in the UK or the USA, here is the information from Harper Collins on ordering the book:


For international orders please contact info@store.tolkien.co.uk with details of the product(s) you wish to purchase, your delivery address and a contact phone number or email. A customer service representative will contact you to notify you of availability and international delivery charges. Any Order placed with a customer services representative will be subject to the terms and conditions contained on this website (the 'Terms and Conditions'). By emailing info@store.tolkien.co.uk you will be deemed to have accepted that the Terms and Conditions will apply to any Order.

We regret to say that we are unable to sell the book to customers in the USA as we do not have the publishing rights for that territory.

Yes. its very tough on collectors outside of the UK. With both Christmas and my birthday coming up next month, I was disappointed that I couldn't add this to my collection.

Oh well, there's still plenty to collect.

Well, what a relief! luckily i still had my Irish credit card, so was able to purchase 2 copies for delivery to my family in Southern Ireland.
But the whole thing is a mess, I cant understand why they would not be able to deliver outside of the British Isles, its unfair to genuine collectors outside of this region.
