Hi Trotter,

a Deluxe bookplated book has shown up on eBay now - looks to be from the family that was in front of you in line. Here is a quote from their auction: "only the first 8 people managed to get deluxe with book plate as they were put into books by staff at waterstones by mistake once in they could not remove so they had to sell like that so i was verry lucky"

Any feel for how many deluxe copies got bookplates from when you were there? The above quote feels mostly like hyperbole to get a higher eBay price to me.

"HarperCollins' David Brawn, the publisher of Hurin, told the media that the movie rights are presently unavailable but that he imagines at some point a deal will be made with a studio. For the moment the Tolkien estate is content with letting the novel get out there and see what the response is from the fanbase before thoughts of a movie adaptation begin to happen."

I will definitely take a look, it is all great information! I may play with formatting a bit and will definitely be asking for more information.

Not yet, unfortunately. I will poll my list of acquaintances to see if someone has a better contact. Sorry!

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!
