I think it all depends, there is a market for signed pieces and this will at least make the book keep value, it won't add monetary value in the same way that others would because as pointed out he is a prolific signer. I myself have no interest in getting a signed copy for the reasons stated here, I won't be there, CoH was a treat because of the personal aspect to it. I can't make any of these signings so I will be happy with unsigned. As I have given up on 'Deluxe' after Kullervo I am quietly pleased that this release is so far costing me €16 for the book and €11 for the 2018 Alan Lee calendar which is a Beren and Luthien one. CoH was such an expensive experience with all the stuff I needlessly bought.

From memory the date has only been moved once. It was originally announced for a release on May 4th iirc but was then put back to June 1st. It was late May-Early June while Tolkien was recuperating that Edith danced for him in the wood (Hammond. Scull Chronology pp.100-01) and also he was passed fit on the 1st June 1917 so it being released around 29th May - 1st June 2017 is I would think a more fitting date than Star Wars day

I think the main reason I was offended by the 3rd movie was the tone in the language. It felt so off, but ultimately you are correct. These are after all just fiction.

There is also some material which as far as I am aware is only published in those works. The draft material is certainly exclusive to THotH and I think Goblin Feet while published elsewhere in a Mallorn issue and a handful of early publications from 1915 into the early 30s is easiest obtainable in The Annotated Hobbit. Tolkien was not kind to it but I think it is a charming little thing and is from the time of You and Me / and the Cottage of Lost Play which I find very apt.
