Wouldn't give anything by Alex Lewis / Ruth Lacon-Elizabeth Currie shelf space. And I have a shelf full of Jack Reacher novels, so I am really not discerning...

I wouldn't worry about missing out. If they dump all the stock to the market discounted, you will end up getting a good deal later on. The market for the book is limited. They won't pulp them jst because they can't get top dollar. If you want one quicker, make HC an offer (at least 100 off). They may well accept, especially as the original price was 250 when they first came out.

I still find it funny that funny that HC produced the SD S&G in an edition of 500, despite the already slow sales of CoH. They should really have paid attention to this forum, where the general consensus at the time was that 500 copies of an SD S&G was totally nuts. An edition of 250 would probably have sold quite quickly for either book, but once the number of copies starts to go up, the desirability drops.

They would probably have had better luck doing 250 SG followed by 250 signed deluxe Unfinished Tales (Same format, but with different coloured leather, assembled at same bindery for overall economies of scale). If they had done that, they would probably have sold them all. I would have bought a UT at any rate, so that would only have left 249.

Mind you, I just quit my job, so my book buying days are probably over....

CoH:Some Available
S&G:Most Available

Realistically, I don't think that it is possible to speculate on this in any way that is anything more than a pure guess. We have no idea how many are being sold each month (if any). I've never seen a "high" number of the S&G for sale on the second hand market, mind, so I would guess that well over half remain unsold.

Can't comment on the Hobbit, but I paid roughly GBP 60 for a 4th Impression (Leatherette slipcase) HC LoTR and about the same for the 2nd impression (Cloth slipcase) of the HC LoTR. Both were eBay sales three or four years ago. From the odd ones I have seen sell, 60-100 seems to be the going rate for these, depending on who happens to be bidding on the day. The 1997 1st impression seems to go for more, as you would expect.

Cheers
Stu
