I am impressed with the latest copy on Ebay from the family in front of me in the queue at Waterstones, though disappointed that they did not ask for my autograph (they seem to have everybody else who was there)

8 times signed Children of Hurin on Ebay

They have also included the bill for what they bought, 4 x Trade, 5 x Deluxe. I hope they would keep at least one copy of each, so these are probably the last for sale from them.

They could however, have bought five Trade copies so I don't know why they only got four.

Took a while to arrive, but Amazon did send the deluxe edition.
Thanks for the heads up Beren

I agree with alpingloin about how easy those bookplates look to be duplicated. With the instant price jump the original books saw, it is going to be very easy for others to try to capitalize for a quick dishonest buck.

I hadn't noticed the Yeltsin and Vonnegut bookplates last time I looked through his auctions. It seems unbelievable that eBay doesn't do something about sellers like this...

He's also well-stocked on Vonnegut bookplates, timely once again.

Incredible how such people get away with it!

To make it even more laughable, his auction for the 'Boris Yeltsin' bookplates says that Yeltsin passed away on "July 23, 2007."

To make it even more shameful, though, the item actually has a bid.
