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.

I am impressed with the latest copy on Ebay from the family in front of me in the queue at Waterstones, though disappointed that they did not ask for my autograph (they seem to have everybody else who was there)

8 times signed Children of Hurin on Ebay

They have also included the bill for what they bought, 4 x Trade, 5 x Deluxe. I hope they would keep at least one copy of each, so these are probably the last for sale from them.

They could however, have bought five Trade copies so I don't know why they only got four.

The main listing has been pulled, I have also reported the bookplates, but they are still available, sadly one has been sold. If you have not already reported them to Ebay then please do so.

Forged Bookplates

This is a bit of a first really for Ebay, I have never before seen someone sell their attempts at forging a signature as bookplates.

How long before the first COH signed by J.R.R. Tolkien appears?

Rowns,

They were right in front of me in the queue, I am actually in the picture of the book signing at the top right at the back of the picture.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dl ... dexURL=4#ebayphotohosting

This is the family that bought at least one copy each of both books and I think there were five of them.

Waterstone's may have made a 'mistake' in putting the bookplates in the Deluxe Version, and this would explain why there are no US Deluxe copies.

Waterstones had no books with the bookplates in, Waterstone's staff inserted them. If I take what they have said as being true, then they had not realised when I passed that they should not put bookplates in both books, so you are looking at a lot more than eight books.

So two possibilities.

1 - Waterstone's made a mistake, probably 20-30 Deluxe copies with bookplates exist.
2 - They did not make a mistake, I still think they had about 200 bookplates in total and I would guess 1/3 went into the Deluxe books, about 65 books.
