Off-hand, that looks pretty good, Dior. I will compare it with three well-provenanced signatures that we have.

I'm interested in what everyone thinks of ths signature. I have a British Edition of the Sil signed very much like this one. I picked it up quite cheaply, gut I was unsre of the signature. Your thoughts?

I am also struggling with this.

GA&U contracted with Christopher Tolkien to sign 100 copies of the book, but did not follow through with that. The signed copies would sell more easily than the other copies, so why would they not have done this? I would think that we know that at least 100 signed copies exist.

I am really interested now to know exactly how many signed and non-signed copies were sold.

Anyone know how we can find out?

alpingloin Thanks for starting this topic

Yes, there may not have been 1000 bound; but not 100 signed? How come one proud owner (Deagol) has a signed #91?
