I honestly think these last two (not yet released) "Deluxe" Editions are a bit cynical. HarperCollins obviously knows lots of people have collected them so far and will feel the need to complete their collections.

I'll wait to see what they look like, but I might be out of the game now. It really feels like I would just be buying them for the sake of it at this stage, as it isn't material that is remotely suited to deluxe treatment.

Does anyone have new information about the deluxe release of the Tale of Kullervo? It's supposed to be released later this year (October).


Slated for 20th October at the moment. ISBN: 978-0-00-816672-4. Shows up on Tolkien.co.uk if you do a search, athough there isn't any new info on it. I wouldn't necessarily expect to see any additional information at this stage, as the release date is still fairly distant.

If I recall correctly he claims that they are new/different books but that he just uses the same/old photos i.e. "stock photos". Obviously, that's perfectly possible (& perhaps this is what you're seeing), but it should clearly state that in his auction listings (which it does not).

Either way, it's pretty annoying.

Unstated stock photos is pretty much a cardinal sin when selling books. Grrr. Seems odd that he would have so many of the exact same sets, mind...

I wonder how many times 1973Lee1973 can put the same book up for sale, have it appear to sell and then list it again.

I'm have a feeling it also showed as selling for the 400-pounds-ish price prior to this date range, as that was what flagged me to keep an eye on it and see if it kept popping back up, due to my natural suspicion of eBay sellers.

(and yes, despite appearing to sell again most recently on the 29th, it is back up for sale again today).

Something not quite right here.
