Jeremy,

The quote that you mentioned is made up, if you look at the date "Evening Herald April 1, 2012", but I think the point is valid.

There are some interesting parallels on this website

http://www.lenkiewicz.org/index.php?o ... ion=printpage;topic=739.0

where people are arguing that the executor/estate should try and protect the reputation of the individual by preventing fakes from being sold.

I'm sure that the Tolkien Estate are very interested in protecting Tolkien's reputation, in fact as I see it they may be only entity that eBay would take any notice of in this regard.

He does not have any incentive to stop as he always sells the fakes. He will carry on indefinitely.

It is sad to see that The Tolkien Estate have no problem with fake Tolkien signatures being sold, as they do nothing to stop them,

but for now I'd say that the 'Moberly–Jourdain incident' had about as much 'influence' on Tolkien's works as did the Cottingley fairies, which is to say, none at all


I bought this point up with Dimtri Fima at Oxenmoot this year, garm was there as well, and she completely agrees.

I'd hope that most bookshop owners do not get customers like this.
