Many thanks for Fangorn for images! Be sure to go check them out, I love the artwork style:

Christina and I also think that the signature isn't genuine.

(The word, by the way, is provenance, 'the pedigree of a book's previous ownership' - John Carter, ABC for Book Collectors.)

The bloomsbury "oil paint" signature doesn't look right to me either. Willing to be corrected by some of the true experts around here, but this looks and feels wrong to me.

The signature looks wrong. The book is wrong - why on earth would JRR sign someone elses' work?

My advice - get onto Bloomsbury ASAP.
