Well I'll be mailing this person to get a larger view on the signature... it seems messed up indeed, but feels very genuine to me as well. Especially the J is done very well. The only doubt (at a fast glance) is the line underneath the signature, which is not Tolkien(ish) at all. Also the position of the autograph makes me doubt very much. If this booked belonged to Tolkien he'd never would have signed there, and if it was not his own copy, why on earth would he sign it there? Still, I have to see the signature up close and do have to look up some stuff before I can give a definitive answer.

Today I have placed an other Linguaphone course on eBay I have bought lately.
If you're interested, feel free to place a bid

I didn't want to start a new topic on this, but another Tolkien signature is on eBay:

Tolkien "messed up" signature

Looks pretty messed up and I can't find out if it is a genuine one. Looks quite good to me when you look to the form and writing of the letters but it's quite messed up for Tolkien's style... Also it hasn't got an ex-libris...
If it is a genuine one, it is a bargain! But I will not place a bid as I am very doubtful about this. Maybe Beren can find out

Seller has subsequently re-listed (despite Beren[?] contacted him); buy-it-now £275...

Not a very good drawing I admit, but I was told he did 6-7 of these in a row quickly thus allowances should be made. I'll be happy to show the buyer around a dozen pictures if similar Alan Lee sketches in signed copies (several the same as this one) if you have any concerns about the authenticity.

Alan Lee Drawing

Any thoughts on the sale (or AL's drawing...)?
