I think the description is nothing more or less than a shaggy dog story. Nice picture; shame about the forged signature.

What do you guys think of this one?

There sure have been a lot of "supposed" signed Tolkien items on eBay lately.

The Michael Tolkien item is definitely legitimate.

Although I haven't seen this particular item, orcraider has sold two Michael Tolkien items (on eBay) very recently both of which I had offered to me privately from a reputable PBFA/ABA book dealer. I know this dealer sold one or two through eBay, back in late 2007, and presume orcraider bought a few of these at that time. That aside, orcraider is an honest and reliable dealer; to be highly recommended.

I'm still waiting for "collector" to resurface and tell us how we don't know what we are talking about and how "deep studies" have been done to authenticate these items.

Agree with garm. This dealer is good and always honest when i have had dealings with him. Bit pricey but a nice book with history
