It looks ok to me.

"This is a scarce first edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's Farmer Giles of Ham complete with dustwrapper.

The book was published in 1949 and is in overall V.G condition. The dustwrapper has a couple of minor closed tears at the top of the spine.

What makes this book very rare is that it is signed and dated by the illustrator Pauline Diana Baynes.

She has written 'Pauline Diana Baynes 49 on the title page underneath her own printed name.

This must be one of her first signatures as she was only 27 years old in 1949 and this was her first of many commissions for Tolkien's books.

Pauline Baynes,to my knowledge did not do book signings. Her signature is very scarce. I have only seen two other books signed by her

I assume that a metal plate was created of Tolkien's signature and used for all the books that carry this particular signature. If you look at where it is used, the angles are different, so more than one plate could have been made. Additionally English and Medieval Studies: Presented to J.R.R. Tolkien on the Occasion of his Seventieth Birthday, has a different facsimile signature.

Yes, this copy is not signed by Tolkien (He did sign at his publishers and they took this example to reproduce, I'd love to see the signing signatures)
