Way overprived. But unfortunately the book is now longer available at amazon etc.

And I've missed to buy a copy for myself......don't ask me why. I don't know.......

So if anyone has a copy to spare, send me a pn. Thanks!!

Onónion,

I hate to say this, but try to find that "Tales From the Perilous Realm" Deluxe edition for less. You will have your work cut out for you. It must have had a very small print run.

Here's the link again for the preview box:

Urulöké, that's an awful price though, isn't it? Print run was 2,500 according to Deagol (http://tolkienbooks.net/html/1991-present_17b.html), so not that small. Should we suspect that this is the usual opportunist selling, where stock has finally been exhausted with primary/new sellers, but hasn't really filtered onto secondary markets yet? Only time will tell; but you are right --copies are scare right now. This looks likely to happen with the deluxe Arthur too; as the print run for this was similar & I haven't seen any sign of later printings kicking around (as presumably they have been reprinted). Ditto S&G? Anyway, I'd hold fire if I was looking for copies right now. Copies will surely start to reappear again, for less; you'd hope...

If this edition of 'Tales From the perilous realm' Deluxe is signed by Allan Lee worth the price. I have one of 500 copies.

Do you not mean "Tales From the Perilous Realm" Deluxe edition and not "Unfinished Tales", signed by Alan Lee?

The book on eBay was one of the unsigned copies.

An unsigned copy of Tales from the Perilous Realm (2008) worth 300EUR/£240? I don't think so; you could pick up copies just a couple of years back for retail price.

I would agree, it looks like the auction was ended early, with no bids.

I wish they could have made the pictures a bit smaller, I can still almost make out the cover of the book.

Fortunately they do not discuss much else about the book, such as is it in the original box, and does it have the original tissue paper, this information is possibly in a microdot on the photo.

Thank you Trotter. I mean 'Tales from the perilous realm'.
If the book on ebay auction is not signed, dont worth so much.
