Regarding the currently available "Deluxe" LOTR from Amazon UK..... I have purchased one myself within the last month. (Quick side note: I paid 70 pounds sterling for it. Before I received the book, the price dropped briefly to 65 pounds. I contacted Amazon, and they were very happy to refund the difference. They are very easy to deal with and are always quite resposive to emails.) I had originally intended on keeping the book in its shrinkwrap, but unfortunately, the book arrived with the shrinkwrap torn open and the spine of the book was damaged. Amazon immediately sent a replacement copy at no charge (which thankfully arrived in perfect shape), and gave me 30 days to return the damaged book (at their expense!). To make a very long story short, I was able to see the copyright page, since the book was already opened. It was a second printing of the 2004 deluxe edition. So, it is likely that the initial sellout was the first printing. The first printing may have been limited to 2500 copies, but by not marketing it as a limited edition, it left the door open to subsequent printings. Although the discounted price will not get you a first printing, it is still a very nice book, and I think well worth the money. I have also purchased the Deluxe Hobbit, but have not yet opened it to confirm the print run. I'm very much looking forward to the Children of Hurin Deluxe edition. Somehow, we need to convince Harper Collins to print a matching Deluxe Simarillion. My shelf will just not look right with that piece missing!

I will be attending Oxenmoot this year and was wondering if anyone could help me with which bookshops to check out while I am out there. I will mainly be in Oxford and London.

Thanks
Dior

Hey Guys,

my intent was to encourage new visitors to speak up a bit, so the February contest is one entry per person (nothing against Beren, who would otherwise have about a 50% chance of winning the buttons.) Please don't stop posting though!

Sounds like the buttons are popular enough to be a repeat mathom for a future drawing (or swapping, or as thank yous to those who support the site a lot.) I have extras...

In Belgium they are very hard to find... I think most of them are in America anyways. So to me they look very cool...

After reading over Deagol's list, I am reminded of why I specialize in the calendars: there is simply too much "stuff" out there! This is the same reason that I have stayed with the Tolkien calendars and avoided the numerous movie-related issues. Go for 'em!
