To me, the signature looks a rather similar to some of the dodgy blue-pen ones which Tolkien Bookshelf has - presumably inadvertently - had up for sale in the past. With no provenance, I would probably avoid.

This one came up on abebooks.com and is sold by The Tolkien Bookshelf. What do you guys think?

Description: A copy of the 1st edition of Gottfried Keller's, 'Werke, Band 3, Der Grune Heinrich, Fragmente Aus Der Ersten Fassung, Dramatische Fragmente'. The significant part of this book is the signature of J.R.R. Tolkien to the front endpaper. Front endpaper has previous owners name and 'The Queens College, Oxford", with the Tolkien signature below. Possibly from a former student of Tolkien's. Appears legitimate, but no other provenance known.

Have a wee read of those 12 books, and perhaps it will be a little clearer... No, seriously, you'll need to read the HoME; all of it .

Also, I'm interested in any of those Bakshi animated books, etc.
