Aside from the bizzare context, does the signature itself look real? Im far from an expert but even to me it looks fake.

For me it's about slipcased and boxed editions. As I am early in my collection, I am going for limited editions and 'fancy looking' books first.

Why would Tolkien sign a book written by Lewis, especially given the fact that he did not think highly of this book?

Like most collectors, I mainly collect 1st, 1sts.

However, for research purposes, I also collect unpublished and uncollected images of Tolkien's letters. I have also acquired copies of most of Tolkien's published interviews, but there are still a few I still need. His interviews are fascinating.

I think it would be interesting to hear what everyone has decided to focus on with their collecting.

I'll go first:

Early on I realized I can't collect everything so I decided to focus on US published tolkien editions. I'll never get there but Im aiming for every US edition of everything tolkien has done.

I also like to collect the older poems like Goblin Feet and scholarly works like Beowulf, Green Knight and Ancrene Wisse.

Lastly I liked getting books about tolkien himself and about the various movies made. I'm very casual about this category.

I probablly should have narrowed my focus a bit but these areas called to me.
