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).

Where would you place the value of the Super Deluxe "Children of Hurin" and "Sigurd and Gudrun" editions?


I don't think we have any ideas on sales for the Super Deluxe "Sigurd and Gudrun", but I think they are not selling well. I think they will be remaindered at a very low price, probably less than £100 before very long.

Christopher Tolkien is a human being; same as the rest of us. He's also a nice bloke, and the idea of people waiting for his death in order to see the price of their possessions go up in value frankly makes me feel a little sick. Personally, I'd like to see a cap on this sort of thing.


I entirely agree, I'd like to see Christopher Tolkien around for as long as possible, Tolkien fans and collectors owe a huge debt to Christopher (e.g. 12 volumes of The History of Middle-Earth, a huge achievement), I know that like most collectors on this forum, I will be very upset when Christopher is no longer with us, certainly not celebrating that my books have gone up in value.
