thanks for the input, Beren, and I agree with you about not wanting to bid on this particular book.

Just because this thread will long outlast the eBay auction, I am including the image of the signature here for posterity.

The signature looks ok to me, but I must say that this is the first time that I have ever seen his "fan" signature on a scholarly book. He had an "ownership" signature for books in his own library that looked nothing like this.

So the question in my mind is, why would he sign a book like this for a fan? If he didn't have a problem with this, why aren't there more random books (not written by him) signed like this?

Just trying to get some more interesting debate going about this - anyone else seen similar signed books?

Hi Mel, and welcome aboard! No problem on the website plug, you have been in the links section for almost exactly two years now. Great site!

We have at least one regular Polish member here (Elfy / Marek) who may be able to help you out if you need it. He is a prolific collector, multilingual, and a member of the Polish Tolkien Society so he may even know the collector you are dealing with.

Is the game you are being offered perhaps this one?

I may be able to work something out with you for a trade if no-one else steps up. Feel free to post trades/offers/advertisements here in the forums for anything Tolkien related - the site is definitely meant to cater to more than book collectors, and there is traffic in the other Guide categories, though I don't have nearly the database you do on movie collectibles by far.

Step away from the computer for a few days (camping if you're curious) and the riff-raff comes out of the woodwork. Sorry guys!
