With amazon UK now allowing USA orders, and the price drop, I went ahead and preordered the deluxe edition. I’m on the fence if I’ll keep the order or cancel it and just get the normal edition.

Added a link to the first post for A Great Read Uk Trade edition https://agreatread.co.uk/the-lord-of-the-rings-9780008471286/ at £37.17, the cheapest I have seen so far for this edition.

HarperCollins gave me the following information to release 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.

Thanks for the info!
Should we expect lower quality printing/binding due to the increased number of copies?
If the pre-order numbers go up they change it to 10,000 or more for the first impression, there's still plenty of time until the release date.

I don't see why the quality would need to change based on more copies being printed.

I expect people to be happier with a larger first print run, more checks seem to be done on the first printing than later printings for quality control.

Added eBook version, I am sure that this will be on sale at some point at a much better price.
