With thanks to Mark Hooker, I have discovered the St. Petersburg Tolkien Society, and begun adding them to the Guide database. They publish "Palantir", a fanzine in Russian, but already I have found some treasures in their back issues (all of which are available online in PDF format) such as a good scan of a handwritten Tolkien letter.

I hope someone besides me finds these useful. And if anyone reading has any information on their prior fanzine the "Prancing Pony" I would appreciate any leads. Thanks!

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.

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.

Here is the current list of items up for raffle. Updates should be posted here often as new items are added to the raffle. Please be sure to read the full terms of the raffle before buying entries.

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.)
