I have had a look on Amazon.com and you can't buy the HarperCollins edition. If you search for the UK ISBN number then the US edition comes up. It's not available at Barnes & Noble either.

I think the reason behind HarperCollins selling the super deluxe edition itself is down to money. If they distribute it via a company like Amazon then they have to give them a large discount on the retail price (say 30% or 40%). If they sell direct they keep 100%. The discount is a lot of money for a book like the super deluxe Children of Hurin.

The deluxe collection is 200 GBP compared to a combined retail price of 280 GBP, so it discounted by about 30%.

Jeremy - thanks for the information on the two books at Rowns Books.

The info on the 1928 impression of FCV is especially helpful because I also have a copy but it includes a later printing of the glossary and a jacket with adverts dated 1932. Your copy would seem to be earlier, perhaps the first binding variant.

It drags the information through from the previous page and isn't editable.

I have just ordered a copy for myself together with one of the deluxe collection sets. This month is turning out to be an expensive one! I bought myself another 'treat' last week thinking that HarperCollins wouldn't release these until December. The credit card is making a strange squeeling noise...
