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!

Fingers crossed... :) I just got dispatch notification from Amazon.co.uk, and I have heard from a few others who also have gotten shipment notification. Looks like Amazon is honoring the price!

We will continue to report other Amazon price hiccups on Tolkien books here in the discussion forums, for those who missed out on the CoH price cut.

I knew that setting out... I will never be done! But that won't stop me from trying.

To whet your appetite a little bit, I found this gem this evening - a one hour audio interview with Tom Shippey from 2001:

Myth Makers Radio Interview

Send me more links to online content, or anything else! I have to start somewhere.

... for permission to reproduce images of their very nifty looking bookplates. They have been added to TCG with their own page.

The Philippine Tolkien Society

I love the artwork, and the bookplates are still available for order through their official website (which is mostly in English).

It seems to me that you have an excellent (I can't repeat that enough) gathering of information, that you have chosen to organize solely in chronological order. If/when you are comfortable, having these sorted in other orders as well (I wouldn't want to lose the ability to sort them chronologically) would be nice. Totally up to you where you want to spend the time!

I seem to be much better taking other peoples information into my database than entering my own (something to do with the fact that the scanner is attached to my 3-year old's computer, so I never get to use it), if you would prefer to put your time elsewhere. Seems like we have so many people generating content AND developing websites, there must be a way to streamline our efforts.

[added note: I don't mean to imply pulling tolkienbooks.net into my site - just offering services for website tinkering if it would help]
