It does seem that much of the Burren Tolkien Society page has been updated since yesterday to include Facsimile in the wording. Still, I am sure they have some people registered to bid who thought it was real at first. I am sure they will make more or the registration to bid than they will on the actual book.


I was sent an email today, stating that they going to update the website, and it looks like they have done that.

I don't think the auction will be very successful, as has been pointed out, plenty of these books are available on the secondary market and probably in better condition.

This book was given by Tolkien but he did not sign it, what an opportunity lost. I wonder if this was because the receiver of the book thought Tolkien had signed it.
