Looked bad to me too. Put the image here for posterity (and moved the topic to the Signatures forum so it will be easier to find down the line.)

Now that it is a bit late, I should be able to have some time to write the "2008 in review" post.

All I know is I wouldn't bid on that book--picture too small, price too high, signature appears suspect. Enough said.

I agree - but it's not easy to see at this resolution. Another thing is; the signature is not arbitrary - it seems to have been made by someone who has seen pictures of CT's sig; for example, the C in Christopher is larger than the rest of the lettering, and the p and h appear to be formed closely to the way that CT does. As does the capital T - though that isn't so easy for me to make out. It's things like this which make me wonder if a signature database might not be a good idea..

At present there's only 20 minutes to go (more or less) - and the bidding's up to £199.
