Here's a link - http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Signed-Lo ... tible?hash=item2eaa65b49c

Apart from the obviously fake signature, it seems this might be a rarity - one of fifty copies of the standard 1961 edition of FotR in a readers Union wrapper. (see the Tolkien Illustrated Bibliography)

I'm struggling with this one. I click on the links in your post but they don't work, can you repost the eBay listing again as I can't find the item you are having problems with.

Hello all

Just spotted this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Signed-Lord-of-the-Rings-1st-UK-

Recognise the dealer ? - mmmmmmmmmmm i wonder if it could be genuine?

I think we all need ot start reporting these dealers on mass. Maybe then ebay will start listening or maybe I am being too optomistic.

He will be selling Reindeer drawings next!

I saw that too. Delightful! I love the reindeer. But! - note that the lists are written in >gasp< - Blue Ink!!

Does this cast doubt on their validity?


I have not done any "deep study" on this but I don't think we want to start any rumours that the imaginery Dr Higgins knew the real Mrs Gasch, though they have both had fake letters addressed to them signed in blue ink.

The reindeer drawing is wonderful and this is just on a shopping list, Pauline really was a superb artist.
