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

I don't think Tolkien would have mis-spelled Rayner Unwin's name - not once, but twice!

Great timeline Christina and Wayne
As I suspected!
I 100% agree with Jlong. Even with the facts aside this seller has never offered a half decent explanation as to how they came in possession of so many letters/items addressed to so many people.

The real disappointing thing for me is that people keep paying huge amounts of money for something which is clearly forged and I would concur that these are being produced by one person who is trickling them onto the market. Its happened before with other art/etc and it wouldnt suprise me if this is a similar scam driven by the huge amounts of money involved.

Rant over!

Look forward to more exciting items from this seller!
