I think we've mentioned this seller (1973lee1973) and this very item before. DM slipcase, was it not? And, as you say, seller makes no mention of this. Have a look at this sellers items once, and you'll notice them listed & relisted again & again. This has been up on eBay for years; I'm sure it's the same set.

Here's one -

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOLKIEN-LOR ... ks_UK&hash=item20bcec2d26





The condition doesn't sound all that great -

"minor marks to book covers and pages edges. Previous owners name top FEP of the Two Towers and Return of the King and on page with the Lord of the Rings poem in the FOTR. There is also some ink inscriptions in the FOTR and ROTK volumes on the FEP/inside book cover/BEP, one of which seems to be an illustration of a pyramid scheme and another a list of actors. Maps present in FOTR and TT, not in ROTK."

But what strikes me is that he doesn't mention the fact that the slip-case is not original.

Thanks, Wayne & Christina, for adding you expert opinion here. The seller has visited the forum, so will hopefully see this.

Verlyn says that the book is it is in the pipeline and working toward eventual publication. Delays by the publisher over the summer have pushed the schedule far beyond its projected release date.

We're glad to see that the seller has acknowledged David Miller's opinion that the 'J.R.R. Tolkien' signatures are of questionable authenticity. This is our opinion also.

Wayne & Christina

Important Addendum to Listing - Serious Question Raised On Authenticity of Apparent Tolkien Signature: We received an email from a member of the online Tolkien discussion group tolkienguide.com, who put us in touch with David Miller. While he is not a handwriting expert, Mr. Miller is an expert in Tolkien items and runs a bookstore specializing in Tolkien, The Tolkien Bookshelf out of Newton, Kansas ( www.TolkienBookshelf.com ). He has dealt with a number of Tolkien signatures, real and otherwise. It is his opinion that these signatures are fakes/forgeries. In comparing the signatures on these books with known genuine exemplars, Mr. Miller said, "the big tip-off is the crossed lower loop of the 'J'."
