*p.s. - anyone who's seen my collection, and the list of 'names' on items there, will know what a disappointment this is for me.

I can't mind the list price. Is this eBay listing too expensive or something?

A Tolkien Tapestry: by Cor Blok (NEW)

After wasting so much time and energy chasing this book, I have given up. Harper Collins take note; all it takes is several weeks of no information, followed by a week or so of hectic enquiries (the result of which seems to be that the publishers have lost the signed copies) for me to say, 'That's enough! '

Sorry, Trotter - I wouldn't trust this lot to tell me whether or not it's raining! I went and got myself a copy of the standard, unsigned edition, and I Do Not Care whether I have a CB sig, or not.

Enough is enough.


I would suggest that anyone who wants the signed books just sticks with their order from Amazon.co.uk and relaxes. You will either get the book at some point or not (in which case you can cancel the order). Or alternatively, just order from HC - again, they will either be able to supply or not. I definitely don't think it is worth getting stressed about.

My Amazon.co.uk order has been pushed out to expected delivery early-mid January, but that date could just be completely arbitrary, of course. If I don't end up getting the book, I won't lose too much sleep.

I think copies of this book on Ebay at this time are all from Amazon resellers (drop shipping). They don't have it in stock themselves and you won't get it any earlier.

Not so sure SonOfDolf. I hadn't ordered the standard Hb, but instead had look around on eBay. I saw a Buy-It-Now from one of these generic sellers right at publication time for £7 odd; which was even cheaper than Amazon. It was new, & turned up no problem. But as Stu says, calm the beans garm!

Just so you know... I'm just listing them. No commission on my side... this is probably the last time any of these paintings will be available. Cor Blok never thought to ever sell any but for private reasons is sort of forced to let some of them go.

My Amazon order also shipped today (and it looks like they upgraded the free shipping to UPS -- presumably because it was so late dispatching)...

I also notice on the website that the price has dropped by another couple of pounds (now 34.97) and it is marked as being In Stock, so Amazon.co.uk definitely looks to be the best bet price/availability-wise at the moment.


Edit: The book turned up today. The slipcase is nicely done and overall it is a nice looking book. I haven't got the standard edition, and having only briefly browsed it in my local bookstore, I'm not sure if there are any other differences (besides the limitation page), but I don't think so.
