Super Deluxe The Children of Húrin for sale

I'm selling a copy of the Super Deluxe The Children of Húrin, copy number 254 of 500. I think this is probably the best quality Tolkien book ever produced.

It is still in the original box from HarperCollins and is unopened.

As such, I can give no guarantees on the condition of the book and the clamshell case, other than it is exactly as it left the printers.

I will probably list it on eBay in two weeks time (at a higher price because of fees), but I am willing to sell it for £1,800(GBP) plus P&P.

This is £270 less than the copy that has just sold on eBay and unlike that copy is still unopened in the original mailing box. It will be sent in a separate box, so if you wish to keep it unopened, you can.

If anyone is interested, then please PM me.

If people did buy 'spare' copies when these were originally for sale from HarperCollins, this does look like a good time to think about selling them.

wonder how many people have spare investment copies?

I couldn't resist it, they were so lovely! I agree with Trotter about the quality.

Hmm, previous ebay sale must have fallen through

Back on sale again with a more detailed revised listing

You are lucky, Roccondil !
I was too young to buy the book at that price when it came out, and I can no longer afford to spend the huge amounts required by sellers to acquire a copy now. I'm afraid I'll have to content myself with seeing them in photos in other people's library
