Like Stu,

I have three copies of this book, two of which are unopened, sealed and in the original packaging.

I intend to sell them when HarperCollins has sold all of these editions, which could be up to 10-15 years time, hopefully a lot sooner.

I have no expectations or would want to try and sell them for more than the price that HarperCollins are selling them for, which is £350, or just over $500USD.

I do not like taking advantage of buyers who have no knowledge of the current market and pay a lot more than they could get the item for, however very happy to do so with sellers

Peeta,

A bit of advise, you may want to look again at your prices in order to sell, as an example

Children of Hurin Superdeluxe

This item can be bought on eBay for much less than your copy, but even cheaper if you buy from HarperCollins.

eBay Item #142017743502

USD $506

I don't think anyone will pay $1500 for your copy at the moment, but also look at the prices on the other items you have for sale.

A great investment

"The book cover is slightly worn which adds to it's character! It can also easily be restored. Because of the condition of the book I have thought very carefully about the price and making sure it is listed at a fair price. This particular second edition, seventh impression is estimated at around £1,240.10."

Remarkably this film was shot even while Tolkien was writing the book and had not yet completed or published it :)

It is a shame that Peter Jackson was not around at the time, to revise and extend it, and generally improve upon Tolkien's writing :(
