Also Trotter, I think you're right about him not being well (enough) known. (And, his signature genuinely doesn't add significant value to an item.) But others (fakers) may think otherwise. People will have heard of his name associated with the Jackson films, and may believe it worth faking to add value/appeal.

I agree with you Trotter in regard to the private forum. I'm pretty sure I mentioned this to Jeremy before (or intended to). It's also a good way of banding about site management issues e.g. if Jeremy wants help with maintaining the site, or ideas for improvement (not strictly private matters, but you don't need to clog the public site with them.)

In regard to AL, I agree he must have been weary with signing. But, AL's signature always looks very light. And, he more often that not used a fine black pen. This looks like a blue biro.

Jeremy?

I looked at the article and this Fellowship is the wrong impression, if it was one of the rare copies it would be the 9th instead of the 10th impression. This is a copy of A&U edition married with a Reader's Union dustwrapper and a fake signature. I reported this seller again to eBay.

With all these suspicious signatures, I'm beginning to wonder (as someone has already pointed out) whether it is entirely wise to discuss in such detail what's 'suspicious' about these signatures on this site. Hmmm...

I am going to ask Jeremy if it is possible to set up a private forum for discussing signatures and for him to approve members access to this forum, as I also think it is unwise to discuss this on the public facing side of the forum.

I don't think Alan is well known enough at the moment to have his signature faked and he did sign a lot of books at the COH launch, possibly was tired when he signed this one.

Incidentaly, how good is this blog? Not only (already) do we have Wayne & Christina chatting about their collection (& providing nice photographs!), but we have a lovely picture of their beautiful New England home! (H. P. Lovecraft has sold me on NE architecture!)

So many questions remained unanswered reagarding 'The Collection' though. I do hope they are systematically dealt with in various blogs over the coming months & years .

[As keen bibliographers are you particularly fickle about condition? (F/F please!), or will you compromise on condition to gather information? i.e. buy a book in less than 'collectable' condition; do any particular aspects of some items cause particular problems in terms of storage?; how do you deal with preservation? (dj covers, protecting from light [I see a window!], airing shelves, climate control [temperature & humidity], & housekeeping generally); how much 'maintenance' does the collection require? etc etc.]

Great blog!

BH
