Did anyone ever get confirmation of the print run for the Deluxe UT?

Well, you now have an answer to this question. Beowulf will be the next (last?) deluxe edition.

This is great news. I am very excited with this new edition.

All of the HarperCollins "Hardback Deluxe" editions are RRP £60, so the Amazon list price (for what it's worth) of £75 is slightly odd.

Yeah, I saw that. I just assumed it was HC trying to fleece as much cash for the final edition. The GBP 60 editions of late have been available for about 35 (or that's what I paid for the last two, anyway), so one would assume a real price of 45 - 50 for this one. I won't be pre-ordering as (a) they never sell out quickly and (b) the price always drops AFTER the preorder guarantee expires. i.e. they drop the price below any of the preorder prices the day after it is released. I got UT and FoA from speedyhen.co.uk and was happy with price and shipping. Packing was on a par with book depository (i.e. rubbish).

John Garth has some more information and a picture of the front cover in his blog.

The standard version will have a lower price.

I think the de luxe edition could be signed, due that price.

John Garth's blog doesn't add anything that Pieter hasn't got up at TolkienLibrary: http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/1 ... commentary-by-tolkien.php (--for those who haven't read his news piece.)

£20 is also more than I'd expext for the standard Hb, tolkienbrasil. And, for £75, who are you imagining this will be signed by? The cover artist? Certainly not CT...

It seems most unlikely that it would be signed, IMHO.

It is a very beatiful edition. Just waiting now...
