Trotter, it did sell: see image below.

Urulöké, do you not think decently priced copies will start to reappear on the market though?

An unsigned copy of Tales from the Perilous Realm (2008) worth 300EUR/£240? I don't think so; you could pick up copies just a couple of years back for retail price.

Urulöké, that's an awful price though, isn't it? Print run was 2,500 according to Deagol (http://tolkienbooks.net/html/1991-present_17b.html), so not that small. Should we suspect that this is the usual opportunist selling, where stock has finally been exhausted with primary/new sellers, but hasn't really filtered onto secondary markets yet? Only time will tell; but you are right --copies are scare right now. This looks likely to happen with the deluxe Arthur too; as the print run for this was similar & I haven't seen any sign of later printings kicking around (as presumably they have been reprinted). Ditto S&G? Anyway, I'd hold fire if I was looking for copies right now. Copies will surely start to reappear again, for less; you'd hope...

Why are you convinced that this is a HoME standard Hb 3-volume slipcase? I mean, they look the same; but why so sure? And why would HarperCollins be needing to get rid of them? Why would they not just fill them with more HoME volumes? I mean, there must be a demand for the 3-volume st. Hb HoME set, as they're still churning them out.
