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

And it goes without saying that I find none of these negative attitudes here on this site


Damn, I do my very hardest to display all kinds of negative attitudes and you didn't even notice!!!

I'll try a bit harder - How about : "The movies were indeed utterly awful and I look down at the kinds of people that like them and wonder what it would be like to be amongst the company of such asinine gutter-trash?" ?

Seconded - I really hope they do another printing; I will certainly be in the queue to purchase one if they do.

Yes it does


Anyone of course has the right to be offended by something or not approve of something. My point was about the human tendency to make presumptions regarding what the dead might think (if they weren't dead). IMHO, this process involves attributing our own opinions to the dead in order to bolster the validity of said opinions. Surely it is enough to say "*I* do not approve", rather than "Tolkien would not have approved" and let that opinion stand on its own merit.

In the case of this bridge, given the utter and total crap that his been (willingly) licensed in Tolkien's name, I hardly think a bridge (which is presumably a useful thing to those who will cross it) is worth getting too worried about. I imagine the estate would weigh in and kill their party anyway.

Just my two-cents (or pennies) - it isn't my intent to offend any of the living
