mysterious imitation, hand-signed by ?, close-enough though


I agree, but it is also close enough to a 5 year old using a marker pen, perhaps he should insert that in the listing.

That's great, I think Khamul and myself will also moderate posts to include images, if they are missing, going forward.

Looks like a few problems still, tried to add an image to garm's post

I know that from Beren's and Dunedain's posts, that some of these indeed exist. I have been comparing the images posted by Uruloke back on 1-June-07, and I believe that my copy is legitimate.

Would anyone here care to give their assessment of my copy (based on the attached photo), and can anyone make further comment on the number of known US Deluxe CoH copies that have this double signed plate in them? Thanks!



I'd think it is a very small number that were directly inserted into the US Deluxe editions, less than the UK which could not be more than 30-40 copies, but I think the problem is that it is possible to take the bookplate out of the Trade Edition and put it into the Deluxe edition as I have already mentioned.

The Super Deluxe editions would have significantly reduced the value of the Trade copies with bookplates, so I can see why people would move them to Deluxe copies.

You can even get it of for free as a PDF and you can search it.

Reading Beren's article I would not be surprised if the printed book he mentions is from this copy.

I just came from reading the new post on Tolkien Library concerning a pirate reprint of A Middle English Vocabulary


I think this book is out of copyright so cannot be described as a pirate reprint, so it is not a scam, just a very poor and expensive copy of the book (which you can get for free).
