At list price £25, I can't see this being anything other than a normal HC hardback i.e. having pretty average production values.

"Sumptous gift set" doesn't fill me with hope.

I think your price range is just about right. Anything under or near £100 would be pretty decent I reckon. I wouldn't personally pay more than the £175 you suggest.

I tend to avoid using my paper-backed jacket covers & use my archival (transparent plastic only) jacket covers; they're very slightly less bulky because of the lack of paper. You can also buy covers (or make your own) which only really cover the spines and covers & don't have layers of wrap-round i.e. what sellers use at book fairs. Again, this cuts down on the bulk of the covering & usually allows books to fit in their respective slipcases.

Amazon UK has it listed as a hardback for pre-order; in case there was still any debate about format:

To be honest, and I haven't looked at all your listings Peeta, if you have a Best Offer option on all these listings then I don't really think there's an issue here. I see plenty of Buy-It-Now listings with Best Offer options --& I see this as an open invitation to offer well below the top Buy-It-Now price. But be aware that some buyers might not be experienced enough to view listings like this; and this makes some people here a little uncomfortable.
