The signature looks ok to me, but I must say that this is the first time that I have ever seen his "fan" signature on a scholarly book. He had an "ownership" signature for books in his own library that looked nothing like this.

So the question in my mind is, why would he sign a book like this for a fan? If he didn't have a problem with this, why aren't there more random books (not written by him) signed like this?

Just trying to get some more interesting debate going about this - anyone else seen similar signed books?

On a very good day your book might sell for up to 100 USD, but due to the high numbers printed this edition generally sells for 30-50 bucks.

The presentation copy issued by Methuen in Canada in 1977 may sell for $600 USD, perhaps you are confusing it with this.

Sorry that it is not better news.

I think you should go back to the book dealer and sell it to him for $200 as you are very unlikely to get this price elsewhere.

The book is quite common, I bought a copy in pretty good condition recently for $30, which was cheap as the book would normally sell for $50-$100.
