Is there going to be anything different between this signed 'exclusive' deluxe, and the normal deluxe?; besides the signed page. I'm wondering whether to bother keeping my order for the 'normal' deluxe, on Amazon, standing or not.

I agree, this site offers nothing at present (besides the promise of these exclusives) that Amazon doesn't; besides slightly higher prices...

Well, I took crayon to mean coloured wax, as you do. So the US and UK meaning appear to be the same. In UK a coloured pencil is... well, a coloured pencil. Although you'd call it a colored pencil!

The photo is poor, so you can't tell either way. Although with the seller being from the UK I'd guess he didn't mean pencil, and did indeed intend to mean crayon as you understand it. What was Tolkien playing at?; inconsiderate so-and-so...

Incidently, check out the postage! Having never purchased a book at £20K, I have to ask -is this how much it would cost to deliver? (or is this a slip? £3.50 perhaps? )

The listing is pretty amateur-ish for book that is priced up (rather hopefuly I feel) at £20K; this is eBay mind you! As Parmastahir says, a better picture of the signature would perhaps be worth the effort baring in mind the price if realised. More interesting is the provenance, and the fact that the guy worked for GA&U, and actually met Tolkien.

(Parmastahir) What does crayon mean in the US?

Here's some prices I've noted (on eBay) over the past few years:

In 2006:
£57
£110 no slipcase
£97 no slipcase
£140
£73
In 2007:
£112 no slipcase
In 2008:
£56
£283 still sealed

Also wanted a set; but prices have always been highly variable I think.
