Kullervo is also on its 2nd impression. I was actually surprised, given it's such a peripheral work of Tolkien's.


In the case of Kullervo, probably just a small print run. The hardback went to 2nd impression within the first couple of weeks.

We're two days out from the release of the new Deluxe HoME set. Has anybody seen actual images of it? I admit I had sent the publishers a message informing them about my feelings on the design etc. I doubt it would have made any difference. I'm just curious to see what the final product looks like since several sites have varying images.


Has anyone received this yet? I've got an e-mail from Amazon saying they're 'still trying to obtain the item', and I see it's showing as out of stock at Speedyhen and Waterstones. My initial thought was that HC had underestimated demand, and I was going to end up with a 2nd impression, but I'm now wondering if there's some sort of delay with supplying any copies.



I think a delay getting them printed and bound is far more likely than them selling out. The original deluxe edition of 1,000 copies did not, as far as I am aware, sell out quickly.

To be honest, they could do a lot better than just replacing with a page from the facsimile Hobbit. Not that hard to source matching paper (blank pages from same-era books) and then print a scan of the facsimile page onto the matching paper and then insert that page onto the stub of the original. It would match quite well.

Not a problem, so long as it is disclosed to any future buyer, I guess. That said, I'm surprised at the price being so high for a book with this kind of damage.

I think that is officially the winner of "The wonders of eBay". We can all pack up and go home now.

I am waiting for my preorder. If it will be of any help to anyone I can post pictures as soon as it arrives.



I think that would definitely be useful for those sitting on the fence on this one.
