I was about to say, there's nothing there Morgan!

If you have any other smart ideas about highlighting interesting copies of, for example, The Silmarillion that you spot for sale; but which aren't for sale anymore; but were for sale before you mentioned them here; then do see to it that you don't mention them here & that you email me privately first!

Yeh, I just got another email (from Amazon) explaining that the publication date had been put back again; as I'm guessing a few others here did too. I'm guessing this is still planned to be a true facsimile edition; therefore, as you allude, will not have colour plates.

Does anyone get the impression this edition is going to get pulled? I mean, is it really viable for them to trot out this "75th anniversary" line when this book is due to be published 77 years after the first publication?

Paid £23 for my copy (eBay) back in 2009. It's a tidy little deluxe, but pretty scarce; not sure if I've even noticed as many, as laurel suggests, of one or two a year.

I could have sworn that said £80-odd yesterday. Anyway, yes --£50.69 is a great price. I see the new cover image for A Reader's Companion too.

That email quote isn't exactly that clear...

Is it definitely saying that the text for both the single vol. LR and the LR/RC four vol. set (we know Reader's Companion has been updated) is reset & updated?

I'm ordering direct from SpeedyHen as their one vol. price is very, very low; less than half the HC/retail price. That said, I can't find any prices (although I ain't looked very hard!) less than £80 for the LR/RC set. Not ordering this set at that kind of price; at least not right now.
