Uncorrected proofs don't show up in the marketplace often. Here is one on eBay for a US (Houghton Mifflin) Lays of Beleriand:

Trotter,

That's....... not acceptable. By any definition I can think of.

I certainly hope so, and assuming they are all in circulation I think they will come down in price eventually. Buyers have to be patient for that to happen though!

Without contributing to the "what is is worth" side of the conversation for the deluxe "Tales from the Perlious Realm", my point is that I have been watching closely online for these, and this recent ebay copy is the one of the only copies that has come up for sale anywhere (ABEBooks, Amazon third party sellers, eBay, Biblio, Alibris, etc.) that I have noted for at least six months that isn't ridiculous (there's one from a China seller on Biblio.com right now for over $600, I am not even sure that isn't a phishing scam instead of a real copy). These are quite scarce on the open marketplace, currently.
