More information here on the tolkien.co.uk web site

http://www.tolkien.co.uk/forum.aspx?g=posts&t=468

Looks like you can only buy it through the store on the tolkien.co.uk web site and is only available for delivery to the UK, which is a surprise.

I looked at this and thought that this must have come from somewhere else on the Internet, looked like it had been cut and pasted, and a quick search on google shows the real culprit.

Search.com web page, Skiatook

I am struggling to see who to contact to get the Tolkien reference removed. Does anyone have any ideas?

This one is quite sad as well.

Unwin Hobbit Paperback with Facisimile Signature

The seller does not believe that this book has a facisimile signature because "(i personally am not convinced as it seems the only people who advise about these books are also the people that sell them for thousands and thousands of dollars!)" i.e. an X-files conspiracy theory to make out that the book is not signed when it is.

Hopefully any potential buyer will read Beren's or Deagol's website and work out that they are talking nonsense or they may notice the same book book from other sellers all described as having a facisimile signature.

In regards to Alan Lee signing and dating books, Alan normally signs and puts the date on the book. But like most book signers, they are normally happy to do whatever is asked for. I just asked him to sign mine and not date it, my copies do not have dates.

I don't think it is the same people, after all the seller with the previous adverts was actually at Waterstones, but they are guilty of selling the scanned image on Ebay and starting what will be a huge problem in fake bookplates. I have given up reporting these to Ebay, as they don't care if they are fakes as long as they get their money for selling the item.

Rowns, what has happened to the number of posts they all went back to zero?
