Thanks all. I am in the US as well and Speedyhen and AGreatRead don't deliver to us here. I guess I was thinking of the pattern for the deluxe volumes, which list at 75 GBP but drop into the 40-something range thereafter.

The Deluxe edition is down to $98 USD on Blackwells, FYI.
The standard edition is $35 USD

I went ahead and ordered...the deluxe had been at $114 USD for the last few months or so.

Speedyhen and AGreatRead (according to their website) both deliver to the U.S.

I haven't tried A Great Read personally. Their website says

Don't forget, that if you're paying GBP with USD via PayPal, they're not so nice with their exchange rates and fees.

Nice looking forward to photos! Some questions that I have, that could probably be answered through photos:

- what are the two exclusive fold-out posters?
- does it include a frontispiece?
- Do the size dimensions complement the other collector's editions?

A Tolkien Society member has pictures of the Deluxe edition up on the TS Facebook page this morning. If any of you are members of that page, go in and check it out.

I ordered both standard and deluxe yesterday from Blackwells and live in the states so not expecting mine until late next week or the week after.
