My hardback copy of The Story of Kullervo is a 5th impression.


Mine is a 2nd. The firsts sold out very quickly. That said, it wasn't a title I minded not having a 1st, but was unusual in that it must be the first book I have purchased new in the last few years that wasn't one.

Wow, I wonder what the print runs were; Presumably fairly small.

Amazing! I bought two and I'm hoping at least one gets here without bumps


Fingers crossed -- it really is a lottery with online book buying. These are less heavy than some of the deluxe editions, so I think they might fare a little better in the post than they sometimes do.

Got another copy through from HarperCollins (which was nice of them). Looks like standard tolkien.co.uk packaging (sturdy cardboard envelope - thicker than the BD ones) -- has provided the necessary protection and no bumps! Two copies of a slipcased book with no bumps -- this has to be a record!

Pity they printed 8,000 jackets. Unlikely there will ever be a chance to correct the word spacing, etc, on the flaps (very minor, but would have been nice to have corrected if the chance had arisen).

I'd be surprised if it sells out rapidly, personally. 4,000 is not insubstantial. I think all the people who really want a copy should be able to get one with no drama (which is good, as the problem with a lot of special edition type printings is they are either too limited or too expensive for the average punter to consider).
