The Antiquarian... that’s the nicest response ever :)

It was clear to me what you meant, but I can see where the confusion might have been.

Anyway, I think you should be able to get the Beren & Luthien deluxe edition for about USD 70 if you’re lucky. I overpaid a little bit but I rushed to get a 1st/1st. I’m sorry I can’t help with whether they’ve reached 2nd impressions. Perhaps a message to Harper Collins might clarify.

I was hoping we’d get a stand-alone Fall of Gondolin similar to Beren and Luthien, it I guess this is it.

Either way, Christopher’s contribution has been monumental and it really is the end of an era. Bless him with a peaceful and healthy retirement. His father would have been tremendously proud of his achievements in publishing his work with such sincerity and respect for the material.

Those are my same thoughts Stu.

Speedyhen is cheaper but gets second preference because everyone buys from Amazon. Surely by deciding to purchase from Amazon one would only be encouraging this?

The way I see it, there’s no hurry to get the first copies. It hardly makes a difference as they’re all Chinese editions. So why the clamour to get it as soon as possible? Why not pay lesser at Speedyhen and send a message (at least when it comes to these sort of specialist books) to Harper Collins?

Yeah, and I also feel (though I may be wrong) that Tolkien items do seem to have a bit of a premium or markup above the average cost of other books/collectibles/etc.

I suppose they’re assured there’s always some subset of fans who will buy items without giving too much thought to the value for money.

I think I’m settling for the standard hardback too. The deluxe is completely out of my price range - I would’ve pushed to get it if there were something unique about it, but I simply can’t justify splurging only for a couple extra art prints and a cloth binding.
