Like you, I did not bid because I was not 100% sure. However I did email the seller about the book. He said the book was inscribed to a P. P. Mroczkowski.
I presume this is Przemyslaw Mroczkowski. I found a bibliographical entry as follows:
"Mroczkowski, Przemyslaw: Dżentelmeni i poeci: Eseje z literatury angielskiej. Kraków: Wydaw. Liter., 1975. 306,  pp.
See the chapter "Uczoność a wyobrażnia w Oksfordzie", pp. 278-307, an essay about C. S. Lewis and Tolkien.
Title in English translation: Gentlemen and Poets: Essays on English Literature. "
But can you ever be 100% sure about a signature. But I must say I was very tempted to bid. I had the feeling that it was all genuine.
