All I know is I wouldn't bid on that book--picture too small, price too high, signature appears suspect. Enough said.

I agree - but it's not easy to see at this resolution. Another thing is; the signature is not arbitrary - it seems to have been made by someone who has seen pictures of CT's sig; for example, the C in Christopher is larger than the rest of the lettering, and the p and h appear to be formed closely to the way that CT does. As does the capital T - though that isn't so easy for me to make out. It's things like this which make me wonder if a signature database might not be a good idea..

At present there's only 20 minutes to go (more or less) - and the bidding's up to £199.

I almost forgot it until yesterday evening, when I got mail on Facebook about it...
But luckily I still had some while to toast on "The Professor!"
