Have a look at this!!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/J-R-R-TOLKIEN-C ... ks_GL?hash=item23058f4811

I'm sure the seller (who made a lot of effort to get a metal case), has also got permission from all the rights holders involved to sell this item and is paying royalties.

I don't understand why eBay gets away with allowing these listings and the recent pathetic typewriter listing and this nonsense at the bottom of the listing, absolute rubbish as far as I can see.

"To Whom It May Concern (inc. Ebay’s VeRo Team and The Publishers Association).

Kindly take note that these recordings are from the Writer’s Original Work, which is now in The Public Domain. They are read by Modern Readers who placed these recordings in The Public Domain. They ARE NOT copies of any other "copyrighted commercially available recordings" and as such they do not infringe any copyrights but are in full accord with Ebay’s policy"

The signature looks good to me. Another option would be to sell it on eBay.

Hi
I had a UK version proof until recently
It wasnt in mint condition
Got £175 for it. Think $70 a great price. If you have any more let me know

I'd suggest an Auction House to sell this and one that sells quite a lot of signed Tolkien item's like this is Bloomsbury Auctions (http://www.bloomsburyauctions.com) and I'd suggest contacting them for an appraisal.

There may be some interest on this forum in buying this item, so let us know if you decide to sell it through them.

Hi ireland,

that's a nice looking signature! It would be valuable to have some provenance on the Nurse and her relationship with Tolkien, but from my perspective, the handwriting and ink look very good. The book condition (impression, wear, etc.) mean that the value here is in the signature, but I think that it would do well at auction or in a private sale as a good example of a signed book.

I haven't heard anything negative about your book yet (but some have not weighed in). I wish I had more disposable income right now!
