Today I have placed an other Linguaphone course on eBay I have bought lately.
If you're interested, feel free to place a bid

I didn't want to start a new topic on this, but another Tolkien signature is on eBay:

Tolkien "messed up" signature

Looks pretty messed up and I can't find out if it is a genuine one. Looks quite good to me when you look to the form and writing of the letters but it's quite messed up for Tolkien's style... Also it hasn't got an ex-libris...
If it is a genuine one, it is a bargain! But I will not place a bid as I am very doubtful about this. Maybe Beren can find out

Seller has subsequently re-listed (despite Beren[?] contacted him); buy-it-now £275...

Not a very good drawing I admit, but I was told he did 6-7 of these in a row quickly thus allowances should be made. I'll be happy to show the buyer around a dozen pictures if similar Alan Lee sketches in signed copies (several the same as this one) if you have any concerns about the authenticity.

Alan Lee Drawing

Any thoughts on the sale (or AL's drawing...)?

The seller clearly references (A recently advertised signed Simarillion on ebay sold for in excess of £300! so with this in mind I am starting at a low price.) the item (I think) they copied this from i.e. the David Miller bought US Silmarillion (discussed in another thread); which did indeed sell for >£300.

They (the US Silmarillion, and US BoLTs previously mentioned) were both dated '26th July 1987', when Christopher was in the US at (that) Tolkien conference. This seller seems to have modelled the format on this: To ____, [next line] Christopher Tolkien, [next line] suitable date. In this case (wisely?) not specifying a precise date; & also changing the month and year for good measure! (and dreaming up the imaginative 'Dave' as well!)

The story (I have owned this book for about 15 years and purchased it from an old work colleague who once met Christopher Tolkien in connection with work and eventually plucked up the courage to ask him to sign his books. An amazing result as I understand he does not now sign many books at all.) is long; but (crucially) vague.

Why are they selling? A reluctant sale but in these times finances are needed elsewhere. £324 sound good enough!? I think that will do nicely...
