This is so very disheartening. I wonder if Harper Collins might read comments on such forums (these folks do comprise their target audience after all) and consider printing the second edition in UK/Italy.

Good points, Stu and Velmeran. Food for (my) thought

It doesn't really bother me from an entire series perspective (although I fail to see any reason for this to be a deluxe edition at all, frankly). Being Chinese printed AND having construction issues, I can't say it feels like a worthy purchase for me. I can't see this being a big seller, somehow.



I guess my feeling is I would like to have a collection comprising either:

1. All first editions printed and bound in Italy or UK.
2. All non-first editions printed and bound in China.

I think it would annoy the heck out of me to have the one Chinese edition stick out in a collection of superior firsts. That's just me though.

And let's hope they don't go this route for the new Beren and Luthien deluxe edition.

So true! I am actually turned off by this and am in no hurry to purchase it anymore.

And for that matter, I am glad I haven't shelled out my hard earned money on the first editions of the previous books. I am a completist, and knowing that one of these is an inferior quality book ruins the "collector's appeal" of the entire series for me. I will probably just wait to purchase this when I get it really cheap, if at all.

Boo!
