Beren mentioned about the 4-volume set a while back: "They originally made 500 sets, filling them up with the remainder of the deluxe editions. Since then another batch was made, so far I think that was again 500 but need to ask to be certain."

That misprice sure was nice especially since they shipped cheaply to the U.S.!

I wonder if HC will make more boxes - I wouldn't be surprised considering the small initial amount (not to mention the 10 at least that were damaged according to Beren). After all, the 4-volume set was originally limited to 500 but then they made more (another 500?). Did anyone else snatch one (or 3) up on Amazon.uk for £135?

The 5-Volume box looks exactly like the 4-Volume box with the addition of the new title listed below the others (and its expanded width). From the "lavish collector's gift" description, I almost expected something new and improved. A nice set nonetheless.

I'll likely cancel - I don't like that policy at Book Depository. I had ordered from them because I found a cheaper price than Amazon and others and when I complained that I wasn't notified about the publication date change (the first one) they gave me a 10% discount. Anyone know the story behind the delays? Really think it will be cancelled? - that would be a shame.

2014 now! First this fall, then next fall, now 2 years. I preordered on Book Depository - I don't want them to have my money for 2 years before I have anything in my hands.
