Hi,

Does anyone have scans of the 'contents sheets' that were included in the shrinkwrap of some of the copies of Vol 1 and (I believe) all of the copies of Vol 2 of the Deluxe Editions of the History of Middle-Earth? I have the original sheet with my vol 3, but was curious as to what 'blurb' was included with the first two volumes...

Thanks if anyone can help!
Stu

The US Deluxe one one eBay doesn't look quite right. The lines on the helm look a bit too thick and black (not as bad as the obviously dodgy ones on eBay a few weeks ago). Fairly unscientifically, I took a picture of a good one and shrank it down to the same size as the image from the US Deluxe on eBay. The image of the 'good one' that I shrank down still had much finer lines than the photo of the US Deluxe exhibits. It may indeed be genuine, but I wouldn't personally risk it...

I think on the whole that any of the bookplated CoHs are a truly bad investment for anyone that didn't get one at the launch. In the future no one is going to trust their authenticity, so all you really have is a $30 - $60 book in a fairly uninspiring binding (even the deluxes are a fairly bland-looking book compared to the various pre-2004 UK deluxe editions) with bit of dubious paper stuck in it.

Just my opinion, though - and I appreciate that it doesn't count for much :)

Just got my H-M Deluxe edition and it has the full numberline. Does anyone know whether the additional HM Deluxes that were printed to meet the preorder demand are actually officially a second impression (i.e with the '1' dropped off numberline) or if they just printed a bunch more of the 'first impression' (with the full numberline). It just struck me that they could have done either as they didn't ship the books out to retailers until the second batch had been printed. I guess this would be answered if anyone has seen one that is clearly a second impression out there in the wild...

Hi Urza,

I recently bought a copy of Vol. 2 on Ebay and paid EUR 200 (US$ 270) for it. I also purchases a shrinkwrapped Vol. 3 for GBP 130 (US$ 260.00) and a non-shrinkwrapped Vol. 3 for EUR 150 (US$ 200). The last Vol. 1 that I saw get sold went for about US$ 450 (I think). It's all about demand, I guess. At the moment, volume 1 and 2 are quite scarce, but there are four or five copies of Vol. 3 available in the $300 bracket.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Stu
