Of course there were at some times Americans coming over to the UK and some even followed courses given by Tolkien. And some did acquire an autograph by Tolkien, but there are only a few.

I have seen about 3 American signed books, who are for sure genuine and have a very good provenance. All others I have seen so far, must be about 30 or so are all fakes. Like this one...

Did Tolkien actually sign any US titles that folk know of? I'm guessing there must be a few out there; but are they not pretty uncommon amongst signed Tolkien books? (Beren?)

Spot on Beren,
This signature looks exactly how it would appear if someone was trying to copy a signature.
It doesn't have a natural flow to it like an original does.

And especially since it does not look to be genuine at all. This is probably the 4th time I see this book come up for sale, every time with the same explanation.

Seems a bit overpriced to me. I wouldn't mind owning the book, but the starting price seems kind of high considering it is only a paperback.
