In July 2010 (see the previous post in this thread), we reported on a copy of The Hobbit about to be offered at auction by PBA Galleries, San Francisco, the American edition, 14th impression (according to the jacket), with the colour frontispiece signed by Tolkien. We noted that the signature was questionable, and Trotter observed both that the copy had been offered earlier by a questionable source on eBay, and that it had been withdrawn from the PBA sale. Well, it's back, once again at PBA Galleries, in their sale of March 15th, lot 201, now with a house estimate of $4,000-6,000. The auction listing is here.
