Just found this in my loft (I think it was a present for a Doctor Higgins), and I offer the same guarantees as the eBay seller.

Heh. Here is my take at translating:

"The work is not supplied with certificate of authenticity and guarantee (as has never been subject to assessment, evaluation expertise)..."


"This has never been seen by an expert..."

"and then, having regard to the recognition and similarity to the style of the author,..."


"but it looks like Tolkien's artwork to me..."

"is proposed as a copy of copyright, falsecopyright, in the manner of the author,..."


"so I hereby state that this is a fake..."

"under Article 8 of the Law of 20 November 1971, n.1062 (Official Gazette No. 318 on December 17)"


"with some really official sounding garbage to make this seem real."

Clearly an allegorical treatment of Tolkien's feelings on the death of CS Lewis- 'An axe-blow near the roots'.

I wish I were as clever as the vendor, 'cos then I might have a clue as to what this bit is about -

"The work is not supplied with certificate of authenticity and guarantee (as has never been subject to assessment, evaluation expertise) and then, having regard to the recognition and similarity to the stykle of the author, is proposed as a copy of copyright, falsecopyright, in the manner of the author, under Article 8 of the Law of 20 November 1971, n.1062 (Official Gazette No. 318 on December 17)"

As it is, I'm stumped (pardon the pun).
