The going rate on eBay for S&G would appear to be £170... The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún - Deluxe Edition Deja vu indeed alpingloin! First of all he's (Wellinghall) asking about buying them; then he wants to get rid of them! BH


I think the main point here is why is this seller, selling a book which costs £350 from www.tolkien.co.uk for £170, you don't need to know much about maths to know that this is a bad deal, unless the book is already remaindered or they got a special price.

I think HarperCollins, if they have not already started, are going to have to remainder this book.

They took no notice of any posts on this forum prior to the release stating that 500 copies was 'bonkers' and they have charged far too high a price for an edition that is no where near as good as the previous CoH Super Deluxe and has a lot less appeal.

Using the search facility on the site, I found that this question had been asked before.

What a bargain, the event finished two days ago so I'm not sure what you get for your money, but 100's of tickets still available

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Festival-Shire- ... ?pt=UK_Tickets_Tickets_LE (100 still available)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Festival-Shire- ... ?pt=UK_Tickets_Tickets_LE (500 still available)

I'd like to think that Mark Faith would not take any money from these auctions but surely he could remove these from eBay once the event has finished.

I think you will get a general agreement on this, the 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarillion, ideally signed, my copy is not signed, as an aside it is possible to have signed copies by Christopher Tolkien of all four Super Deluxe books(The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, Children of Húrin and The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún).

I think you should open it, I really like my opened copy and think out of the four Super Deluxe editions I own it is one of the best (though not the best).
