I have seen a lot of confirmation on the 450 number for New York. They were all in trade copies, none in deluxe copies that I have heard of. Those deluxe copies in the UK are going to be quite scarce I think!

So far, about 15 copies have sold of the US trade edition on eBay through Buy-It-Now (BIN). One lucky soul beat me out to the $55 copy, a few went for about $125-150, and they have sold for as high as $350. There are about a dozen online right now with no BIN that have bids around $60 or so - I expect those will rise before the auctions end.

There is a steady stream onto eBay, so expect a lot more copies, and a lot of fluctuation in price (up or down). Let me know if anyone sees UK copies (trade or deluxe) hit eBay!

I am interested in trying to find out quantities for bookplates in the Children of Hurin.

According to Reuters (A spokeswoman for HarperCollins, the British publisher of Tolkien's works, said Christopher had signed 750 copies of the book at his home in France.) http://in.today.reuters.com/news/news ... JONC_0_India-294592-1.xml

In New York 450 were meant to be available, and 50 were meant to be available in London, which totals 500, so 250 are 'missing'. I was at the London signing and I think they actually had about 200 bookplates which leaves 50 for publicity purposes (competitions, etc.).

This should give a more accurate idea of the rarity of these editions, if people agree with these numbers.

In London you could buy both the Deluxe and Ordinary Edition with bookplates in them, was this the same in New York? If so I am suprised that no bookplate Deluxe Editions have yet appeared on Ebay. Also in London, Alan Lee was in most cases (though not in all) signing on the title page and not the bookplate, so Christopher's signature is right at the top of the bookplate, he lelf space for Alan to sign as in the New York bookplates.

Rowns, can you take a look at the Lembas-entry? Mithrennaith and I did some updating, but maybe it's better that the "Lembas-Extra"-zines are treated seperately (see Mithrennaith's note).

Deluxe's Arrived this morning. Look Great. Match the Recent Lord of the Rings and Hobbit Deluxe's (mostly). By the way, last November you could also order the UK Large Print Edition of the COH for 20p (Due for release in September).
