The signature looks wrong. The book is wrong - why on earth would JRR sign someone elses' work?

My advice - get onto Bloomsbury ASAP.

mmmmm
I have asked Bloomsbury what providence seller has provided. Awaiting a reply. I seem to recall a penguin book being offered before a long time ago by an auction house/ebay. Anyone recollect it?
Signature looks interesting- problem is part of it merges in with book title?

I just noticed this "signed" copy being listed on Bloomsbury in one of their upcoming auctions. The signature looks exactly like the fakes from our old friend on ebay. Does anyone else think this might be another fake?

Just wanted another opinion before I contact Bloomsbury about it.

This has absolutely nothing to do with Tolkien collecting, but I thought that some of the people here might appreciate these ...
