I'm having trouble finding the 1997 HC Illustrated Hobbit Hardback (ISBN 026110330X) that matches the Alan Lee 3-vol LOTR and Nasmith illustrated Silmarillion and Complete Guide to Middle Earth (Foster). I have the almost-matching volume that is commonly sold now that features an updated dust jacket from 2009 (http://www.hobbithunter.nl/gallery2/v ... glish+Hobbit+114.jpg.html). But I'm looking for the dust jacket with the close-up of the dragon on the cover (no gold border across the top and bottom) and the HC logo on the spine in red and blue rather than white (http://www.hobbithunter.nl/gallery2/v ... ngelse+hobbit+92.jpg.html). Any suggestions on how to get my hands on one?

Thanks laurel. I just now saw your post, but as it turns out I was the winning bidder on that. I won it for a bit less than HC sells them (not to mention HC won't ship it to me) so I'm hoping it will arrive early next week. Shipping from the UK to the US sure ain't cheap though!

I'm still waiting to hear from HC - their customer service certainly isn't too hasty. If they won't ship to me, are there individuals or bookstores in the UK that might ship the item to me (either I could order it to them or they could order it) for a small fee (on top of the shipping costs). Obviously, I would want it to be secure on both sides and not get scammed.

Beren - I sent you an inquiry on your website and am still waiting to hear back...

I've sent HC an email about shipping to the US and a possible discount; I'm awaiting their reply. Stu - 145 GBP sounds like a good price for the set - do you think a similar discount is likely to happen again in the near future? Does anyone have experience asking HC for a discount on an item and getting one? I'd seen that they ship outside the UK, but when I try to purchase the item, I get the message: "Sorry but the following products are not available for sale to your country and will be removed from your basket." Thus I'm not so optimistic they'll ship to me.

So I've got some conflicting opinions: 200 GBP is too much Stu says; Beren could sell it to me for more. Anyone else want to weigh in?

Beren - what's your price?

Perhaps I underestimated shipping costs, but I'm guessing you charge more than the 200 GBP (publisher's price) for the books. On the Tolkien Library site I see they go for 400 GBP (and supposedly don't ship to the US) which is more than I can afford. What's your best estimate for shipping this set to the US? By the way I was very pleased recently to receive the deluxe Tolkien Tapestry (#65) from Amazon.ca.
