Can't afford to buy this, but I'll hopefully be able to go and have a look at it on Tuesday.

My copies also looked the same as these, sadly that was in 1963 not 2010

The books also look to be in wonderful condition for this printing, probably the best I've seen.

Have a look at this very long thread from another part of the forum and you'll see a lot about the problem with forged Tolkien signatures.

If I remember rightly the first post was from a seller called classicart_uk and cavorite51 sells a lot of classicart_uk items.

Not listened to this yet, but I am sure people here may find this to be interesting and it is not limited to just the UK.

Melvyn Bragg discusses the life and achievements of Athelstan, the first king of England. With Sarah Foot, Richard Gameson and John Hines.
