*[Urul贸k毛 update] HarperCollins gave me the following information about the planned size of the first print - "Our initial expectation of the level of interest in the deluxe slipcased edition of the illustrated LOTR has been greatly exceeded, hence the removal of any mention of quantity, and current estimates of the first printing are well north of 6,000 copies. Regarding it being on sale via Houghton Mifflin, they are still taking just the trade hardback edition, so any online orders will need to be made via our Tolkien website or Amazon sites."
