Unfinished Tales with a blue HoME-style cover?

Hi All,

This is a question I have been meaning to ask for a couple of years (at least!). On Deagol's tolkienbooks.net site, he has an entry for a 1992 HarperCollins Unfinished Tales with a blue dustjacket (http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=64240) that matches the UK HoME hardbacks. This volume also seems to be visible in one of the pictures of his bookshelves on tolkienlibrary (it appears to have an almost-matching spine to the HoME books).

My question (to Deagol or anyone else that knows) is - how come I have never ever seen one like this for sale (ever!). When I search on the ISBN, I only seem to find copies with a different dustjacket ?

Cheers,
Stu

Bonhams have updated their website with a few images of the upcoming action on March 18.

The Hobbit Inscription to Elaine Griffiths is one of te images along with the photo of Tolkien taken by his son.

Here's the link

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?
