Please also be very careful with this item.

eBay Item #191699678493

I have serious doubts about the signature which may be printed. The seller is offering a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) with the item, which is no guarantee that the autograph is genuine. As always, Caveat Emptor.

I am none the wiser, I don't expect this book to see the light of day, but I am keeping my pre-order in the event that I'm wrong.

This is very poor cataloging by what I thought was a reputable auction house.

They are listing the first of these items as first UK editions of the Lord of the Rings, but no indication of impressions and really no useful info at all :(

I have also looked at the US set, and the same goes, first editions of the Lord of the Rings, but no indication of impressions and really no useful info at all :(

I have stopped collecting new paperback editions because of this issue.

Only now collect new UK hardback editions.
