Someone's bid on it, unfortunately. At least it is an open auction so they can be updated.

The seller couldn't even accurately mention where the "signature" is - it is clearly nowhere near on the inner cover.

Whomever did the fake signature at least did enough research to get the date in the realm of possibility, but I can't imagine when the Professor took a trip to a US library to sign a book.

Here's a "signed" Return of the King for $10! This is a ex-library copy! The seller says that he found the signature hidden on the inner cover. I messaged the seller that the signature was not even a good fake, but he brushed me off "thanking" me for my opinion. eBay has not taken any action. I sent them two complaints: one about forgery, the other about disclaimers. (You cannot list on eBay and then say you don't know if the item is authentic or not.) I hope people don't fall for this.

If you want more context for this, read Anthony's post in the News section here:

Heren Istarion Updates

Anthony and Jessica are raffling off the following items to help Heren Istarion's financial health. Please take a moment to browse through what they have available, and hopefully take a chance on winning some great stuff! Heren Istarion is a great organization (a smial of the Tolkien Society, a branch of the Mythopoeic Society, and has members scattered to the four winds, not just in the New York area), and amongst other things produces an excellent journal - Parma Nölé. I would heartily recommend picking up some back issues, or subscribing now.

Just received the 2008 issue from the Middle-earth Fellowship. Illustrations are from Tales Twice Told. Created entries for it in the chronological and society lists. As always, your comments are welcome!

Well, I finally had time to revisit, and it appears that Search.com has corrected the listing. One less mis-fact about Tolkien online! (And probably a million new ones.)
