I have also listed a first deluxe Hobbit from 1976, unfortunately without the box.

This book was listed for sale for years by an Oxfordshire bookshop. The owner asked me who SRT might be; he thought it might have been S.R.T.O. (Simonne) d'Ardenne, but I replied I wasn't so sure. (I'm pretty sure the signature isn't Tolkien's, either. Since when did he sign his name with only one 'R'?)

As it happens, a glance at the Scull-Hammond Chronology shows that Tolkien didn't become d'Ardenne's supervisor until 1932. So, it ain't her!

OMG that is so K00l!

I have never liked the hyperbole used by flatsigned.com. Though I am sure they have sold a lot of perfectly legitimate books, I have never had the slightest desire to bid on something they are selling.

Okay, it's not Tolkien, but it's still interesting.
