Children Of Hurin- Signed Edition, selling fast! Can't Post

Hey there guys, I hope you don't if I give you a quick heads up on the new limited edition of The Children Of Hurin.

If this offends anyone as spam, I apologise. But I feel this is totally appropriate to these forums...and may well be somethinf you'd like to buy....

As a large and varied group of Tolkien fans you may be aware of the recent publishing of Children Of Hurin, Tolkien’s
final masterpiece, which was of course completed by his son Christopher.

What you may not know is that Harper Collins are releasing a very special edition. We’re looking for ways to reach out to grass roots Tolkien fans and we feel one of the best way to do this is through the various fantasy-based forums and communities online. We want to extend this offer initially to real fans who would appreciate the collectability of this very special book..

Here’s a bit of info about the special edition, and how it differs from the edition already in circulation.

• Painstakingly restored from Tolkien’s various manuscripts by his son, Christopher, and illustrated by Alan Lee
• Each copy signed and numbered by Christopher Tolkien & Alan Lee
• Strictly limited to just 500 hand-numbered copies
• Unique illustrations and two-colour fold-out map
• Leather-bound and hand-sewn
• Custom leather clamshell case

We have set up a sale page for the book here http://store.tolkien.co.uk/

Originally, this book was only available for purchase in the U.K. But due to massive interest from international customers, Harper-Collins is now happy to take orders from around the world.
If you want to get your hands on a copy, you can email them at info@store.tolkien.co.uk . If you can supply them the quantity of the products you want, your delivery address and, if you would prefer them to take your order by phone, a contact telephone number, one of their customer services representatives will contact you asap within UK working hours to take your order.

Unfortunately, due to the matter of publishing rights, the book cannot be delivered to the U.S. Having said this, some American customers are buying the book, and having it sent to a UK address for either collection or to be sent on.

I hope some of you guys take up the offer to own something very special indeed, the book is already selling fast!

Moot - the other moot! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a moot point since I cannot afford the book anyway, but it really is a shame that they cannot be delivered to the U.S. I am sure some fans will be very disappointed.

Well... [In reply to] Can't Post

$700+ is a bit steep for a pre-Ebay sale. I'm glad I got my signed one in New York for $22.

This is the delux version [In reply to] Can't Post

But the cost is about 10 times higher than it should be.

I wish my name was "Barrow Wong". Maybe I should change it. And now for my quote:

"Please note, we have added a consequence for failure. Any contact with the chamber floor will result in an unsatisfactory mark on your official testing record, followed by death. Good luck."
