If you are interested in the Reverend Dodgeson (sic) book as Lewis Caroll and have never seen the original hand written and drawn version of Alice's Adventures Under Ground, then have a look at the Turning The Pages project by the British Library, if you have the right software installed you can zoom in and see every page in the book.

Windows XP or Vista version with .Net installed

If the link above does not work on your PC try this one

Christopher Tolkien's views on the matter of fake signatures (in regard to CoH) being sold on eBay, came to light recently in Jason Fisher's blog; in which he quoted from a letter from CT to Carl Hostetter. I believe the cops and villains were involved; & the Estates myriad eyes...

Registering the signature as a trade-mark more or less requires the intention to trade under it.

And it does not give one the right to stop trade in signed items - provided the items are genuine. But one could certainly regard offering counterfeit signatures for sale as a breach of trade-mark, and the Estate might use this as a legal tool to counteract such trade.
