I agree, Christopher Tolkien's signatures are currently quite easy to acquire, I think I have 8 or 9 in my collection. Christopher Tolkien has signed a lot more book plates and books than his father.

You can get a signed copy by Christopher Tolkien for £245 from the HarperCollins website.

OK this is an earlier example of his signature, but £1200 more!!!

Yes, that's a silly price for a Silmarillion - and Christopher's autograph can't be worth as much as that, can it? (no offence to CT)

As for the Wolfe book - words fail one, don't they?

Sorry, just a quick note (I haven't quite read the latter posts), getting back to the Silmarillion with CJRT signed sticker --did I miss something? $2,200 (~£1,447)!?

It has been relisted with a buy it now price of $8889, only $7200 approx more than they paid for it, what a bargain.

Flatsigned have included a bigger picture of the inscription.

e in he is underlined as is I, any thoughts on why? did he mean i.e. ? which is (id est (that is))??

Big changes so far on tolkien.co.uk, they have added the Paperback version of The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrun and have some unavailable items

They should get a test server and not do this on the live server.

It also looks like they are only selling these books through www.tolkien.co.uk and not through any other avenue including Amazon, but still no date for availability.

http://www.tolkien.co.uk/Pages/Produc ... =9780007365302&from=HC-UK

Amazon currently shows this item for all the books

"Currently unavailable.
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

Sadly it looks like no Amazon orders for these books
