I forgot to put that Alan Lee was also at the signing, yet the Children of Hurin book is not signed by him, it would have been signed if bought from Waterstones.

This is a 2 day sale so please can people report this to Ebay, I do not want someone to waste at least £500 pounds on these books. The seller has bought 5 items for no more than £5 on Ebay so has a 100% feedback, all looks very dodgy.

Have a look at this Ebay listing

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/children-of-hur ... 64205QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I was at Waterstones, the bookplates were not put on the Title Page as in the picture and I would be amazed that they ran out of Children of Hurin books, so put them in The Hobbit instead.

Looks to me like Fake Bookplates? I am going to report these to Ebay.

"Asked to design a fitting repository for a client’s valuable collection of J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts and artifacts, architect Peter Archer went to the source—the fantasy novels that describe the abodes of the diminutive Hobbits.

“I came back my client and said, ‘I’m not going to make this look like Hollywood,’” Archer recalled, choosing to focus instead on a finely-crafted structure embodying a sense of history and tradition."

This is an interesting idea, but a bit to much like the film's for my liking, what do you think?

Beren has posted a very interesting article on this subject The Children of Hurin facts and figures , which seems to agree in most matters with this thread. However, the main difference appears to be US Deluxe Editions with bookplates with Beren's article stating that these were sold in NY.

However, it appears that the US Deluxe copy has still not been seen in the wild.

So I have two questions, does anyone yet have a US Deluxe Copy and if not were UK Deluxe Copies sold in New York?

This auction house is very close to my office, so I will probably go and have a look at lunch-time on the 22nd at the lots, if anybody is interested in these items and wants any more info, then let me know.
