I suggested that it may have been John Tolkien, but did not really believe it as it clearly was a fake.

Ebay claims to be bothered about counterfeit items (which includes fake signatures). However they make it very hard to report and appear to take very little notice when they are reported. Sadly they are just interested in their commission.

I agree it is all as clear as mud.

I was also going to ask if anybody had an information on who printed the dust-jackets, as it is entirely possible that it was not the same printers as the books themselves?

I should have read your post a little more carefully.

You know I meant Christopher Tolkien -Gabriel's son; not (the) Christopher Tolkien (J R R Tolkien's son.)

I'm sure someone somewhere out there collects (or studies) forgeries mind you. There was that pb Hobbit that came up a while back that the seller said had been signed by one of the Tolkiens. Someone on this forum (I think) suggested it might have been John Tolkien. But again, people bid on it; and nobody had a damn clue what it was.
