Khamul, Well I still have not taken the books out of the shrinkwrap yet, but if the numbers on the Shipping Labels do indeed match the books, then it looks like I got copy number 5 and copy number 6.

So it looks like Harpercollins probably did distribute the books based on the sequence in which they were ordered.

Beren,

Just a quick question. On the Address Label on the Outer Shipping Carton - Is the copy number of the book printed there.

I ordered 2 copies and there are 2 numbers printed on the Address Label. I have not opened the shrinkwrap as of yet, so I was just curious if this number matched the copy number of the book.

Many Thanks.

You beat me by 20mins (my order was at 10:39am). Congrats.

But are you sure they will distribute copies No 1 and 2. I would have thought No. 1 would go to Christopher Tolkien and possibly No. 2 to Alan Lee?

Amazing! I remember buying a Deluxe Silmarillion and some audio books from that seller a couple of years ago. Brand New in Perfect Condition. I remember wondering at the time how he could sell them so cheap. Because they were perfect, they were obviously not rejects or returned items.

I even remember exchanging a couple of emails - he seemed a very pleasant person indeed!

I doubt however that they will try recover the merchandise. Too costly chasing thousands of buyers all across the UK and elsewhere. It would cost more to recover the books than they would be worth.

Anyway, looks like he is re-mortaging his house to pay back Harpercollins. So should be no need to try recover any merchandise.

Thanks for posting the news story! Quite amazing.
