Thanks for the advice everyone!

Could you reccommend any Tolkien Collector sites (other than this one!) where I might be able to advertise that my books are for sale?

Just got my H-M Deluxe edition and it has the full numberline. Does anyone know whether the additional HM Deluxes that were printed to meet the preorder demand are actually officially a second impression (i.e with the '1' dropped off numberline) or if they just printed a bunch more of the 'first impression' (with the full numberline). It just struck me that they could have done either as they didn't ship the books out to retailers until the second batch had been printed. I guess this would be answered if anyone has seen one that is clearly a second impression out there in the wild...

Hello, Urza. Over the past few months, a few of these things have sold on eBay. There was a shrinkwrapped copy of volume 2 that sold for $300USD, an opened copy of vol2 for $270USD and a couple of opened copies of volume 3 that sold for $180 to $200 USD. The last time I saw a copy of volume 1 sell on eBay, it went for about $450USD. These are all auction style prices which I think is a good gauge for what you could get if you wanted to sell soon. It is truly a reflection of what people are willing to pay. However, if you have time on your hands and are willing to wait a while, some of the other venues (like Amazon Sellers, Abe Books, eBay fixed price) might get you more money. I have seen the volume 2 on eBay at a fixed price of 300GBP. It has been there for a little while now. I personally think that is too high, but hey, if someone is willing to pay.......

Good luck!

Hi Urza,

I recently bought a copy of Vol. 2 on Ebay and paid EUR 200 (US$ 270) for it. I also purchases a shrinkwrapped Vol. 3 for GBP 130 (US$ 260.00) and a non-shrinkwrapped Vol. 3 for EUR 150 (US$ 200). The last Vol. 1 that I saw get sold went for about US$ 450 (I think). It's all about demand, I guess. At the moment, volume 1 and 2 are quite scarce, but there are four or five copies of Vol. 3 available in the $300 bracket.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Stu

Hi Trotter,

Therewas someone recently selling a group of photo's from their experience at Waterstone's including a high res photo of the bookplate.
Unfortunately that's going to make it fairly easy to reproduce considering the simplicity of the original bookplates.

I bought a signed copy from ebay purchased at Barnes and Noble and I'm glad that I bought it earlier than later. It's going to be hard to tell a fake from authentic in the future
