I wouldn't mind seeing the pic(s) as well! (as a side note, let me know what kind of image upload troubles you had, perhaps there is something I can fix. It may just be that your image was too large relative to the max file size I currently have set, but I can increase that now that spam is more under control).

Back on the authenticity question, I have a copy signed by CT of the US Monsters and Critics that looks identical to yours (given the very low-res scan from eBay) that has excellent provenance. CT was a guest at the Marquette event back in 1987 and signed quite a few items there for people. I would guess yours is perfectly legit with the evidence available.

A Tolkien Collecting Society sounds interesting. Kind of against the whole collecting ethos I feel; buying on this scale, & with this money tho'. At least the books are in good hands. Incidently is this Mark Faith (of GTC), the eBay traider dogfark (Mark Faith Books)?; of the fake AL CoH discussed in another thread...

This kind of discussion is exactly why I love this site. I can understand Beren's fear of providing resources to forgers. My question served its purpose. Should I have further needs, I now know how many examples Beren has access to.

Just pondering the matter, I wonder how many things we sign in a lifetime? What got me to thinking was the 1500 items in Beren's list. Averaged over his life, that is less than 20 items per year. I'd bet that major sports figures sign 1500 per year. Thanks for the comments all!

Hi Larissa,

depends on which coloring book it is, but in general there are still a lot of these floating around (I think there is an eBay seller in the UK who has a mountain of them, and sells them for about $10 each).

If you can provide a photo/scan of the cover, I might be able to help out a bit more.
