This is old information since others have already posted similar news, but I wanted to share the official response I got from HC on the signed Tales book:

"Dear Jeremy - I'm very sorry for the confusion caused about the book. I can confirm it is not a numbered edition - it is simply signed by Alan Lee. Please accept our apologies for any confusion caused - the appropriate Hobbit will be dealt with accordingly.

Best regards

Chris Michaels
Publishing Brand Manager
HarperCollins"

I have created a separate forum for discussions of signatures/autographs and other handwriting samples, since I was having a hard time myself figuring out the best place to discuss these in the older forums - sometimes they were on books, sometimes on letters, etc.

I have moved some of the older discussions to the new forum, and will do a full pass later this week for archival purposes.

Let me know if you have any questions, comments, etc.

This is a Smith of Wootton Major with a "signed bookplate". The signature itself looks okay to me (though it is a very small image), but I swear I have seen that exact pattern of ink smearing before - perhaps this is a copy, or I have seen copies of this? Anyone else?

It's been a while since I've seen a library binding like this, but they are not unique. You can see another one over at skwishmi's webiste:

I have to echo Beren's experiences here - been in contact with a lot of sellers (and buyers back in the day when you could see who they were) and never saw anything good come of it, so I don't do it all the time any more.

I'll see if I can work something out with eBay (know a lot of people there, their offices are about two miles from me) for a better reporting process, but not likely to get a lot of institutional support.
