Indeed! You must be pretty chuffed with that Beren? Its good to here about TV-makers, publishers, and the Estate working with the collecting community. And, if people are seaking you out, for help in regards to Tolkien books; well, that must be satisfying (exciting even!) indeed. The Collier Collection grows in prominence with every passing day...

(Didn't actually see programme unfortunately; can't get BBC4 reception. Might still be on iPlayer...)

Something else (I find) quite interesting is the mention of the (possibly) re-priced 4th impression of The Silmarillion. I know Deagol lists this as including either a 4th or 5th impression, but I'd be interested in hearing from anyone with this set (Deagol, Beren...) what copy of The Silmarillion their set includes, and whether the printed price has indeed been re-priced or not? And, if so, what is the nature of this re-pricing: price sticker, colour, 'GA&U' etc etc

As for the value: I have a note of one being sold (on eBay) in February 2007 for £475. If I remember correctly the opening price was similarly high, and I think the winning bidder was one of only a few bidders; perhaps the only one. So I think it might go for this price...

Poor old HarperCollins! Trotter, what are you going to do if they do send you a numbered copy!?

But you won't be able to differentiate using the ISBN. As both copies will have both ISBN's on the copyright page. Yes/No?

Basically this 'first 500 off the press' claim will become a mute point once these books on are on the open market; making me ask -why bother? Or why were they not numbered? (Or different in some small way.) Just seems like a this wasn't really thought through...

(Beren) ...and what about paperbacks in regard to Tolkien signatures? Did Tolkien sign many?
