It looks lovely to me. Signed on all three title pages? Wow! Pity I can't afford it.

I'd like to know its story - that is, who it was signed for, and how it comes to be for sale.

Not listened to this yet, but I am sure people here may find this to be interesting and it is not limited to just the UK.

Melvyn Bragg discusses the life and achievements of Athelstan, the first king of England. With Sarah Foot, Richard Gameson and John Hines.

Here is another interesting item currently listed on ebay http://cgi.ebay.ca/Return-King-2nd-Ed ... tible&hash=item2eae272ab0


This fake from one of eBay's notorious sellers has been on eBay before, I have reported it again to eBay as a forged signed item.

There's a two-page article on Joseph Wright (a colleague of Tolkien's) in "Oxford Today".
