He does not have any incentive to stop as he always sells the fakes. He will carry on indefinitely.

It is sad to see that The Tolkien Estate have no problem with fake Tolkien signatures being sold, as they do nothing to stop them,

but for now I'd say that the 'Moberly–Jourdain incident' had about as much 'influence' on Tolkien's works as did the Cottingley fairies, which is to say, none at all


I bought this point up with Dimtri Fima at Oxenmoot this year, garm was there as well, and she completely agrees.

I'd hope that most bookshop owners do not get customers like this.

This may be as reliable as the discredited claim that CT keeps wild boars in his garden to keep away fans, but I have heard that CT will only correspond by fax with his publishers, hence that would be the only way that he would have seen a copy of the item.

It was discussed here (in the members section)

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... =ASC&type=&mode=0&start=0

and I notice it is still on Beren's site (http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/collect ... /object11/description.htm)

The summary is that it is not considered to be a genuine signed item.
