The Children of Hurin: Super Deluxe Edition - 2007

http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... super-deluxe-edition.html

bruffyboy

As regards your views on future prices, I notice that you have just purchased copy 379 of 500, so you can calculate the current sales rate is on average 108 copies per year (based on nearly 3.5 years to get to 379).

If you take into account that a lot of collectors bought two copies in 2007 as an investment, I would guess HarperCollins currently sell less than half the average rate (108) per year, probably about forty copies.

At that rate HarperCollins would sell out of copies in 4 years time, or they may remainder them.

Anyway, it's my thought that this book will be worth at least £700 in five or ten years time, at which point I will make my own decision on whether to keep it or not!


I'd say more like twenty to thirty years for that price.

I have a first impression of this book and it has the wrong ISBN on the title page 'ISBN 0002241951' appears on the verso of the title page. This is an error, as on tolkienbooks.net.

If Deagol's site was still available you would have been able to verify this yourself

Sorry, our mistake.


No need to apologise, I did not mean it that way, but that the letters are so terrible that they all look the same.

They are not the same letters, the first one is a Higgins and the second two are the same Hooper letter.

Once again a load of rubbish !


Could not agree more.

I reported them as they were re-listed plus the latest travesty.
