I could be completely wrong here, but It looks like a self or Mormon published book by Paul Nolan Hyde, possibly based on the following.

"A Working Tolkein(sic) Glossary

by

Paul Nolan Hyde, Ph.D"

A Hobbit paperback on eBay claiming to be signed by "The Professor", which they are, as is every copy produced because they all included a printed copy of his signature

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dl ... &ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT


Sent notes to the seller, but will also inform any buyer after feedback is left and I can see who they are.

eBay need to fix the fact that you cannot inform buyers about problems before the auction ends.


It sold for £40, a lot of money for this paperback.

I don't think that Wayne & Christina will be pleased with this auction of "Artist & Illustrator"

Houghton Mifflin , First edition, book and jacket fine, read-once condition.


£569 and it's yours.

I'm jealous as well, I do own this set, and my copies have good dust wrappers but badly foxed books.

I paid at least three times the best price so far. I do think they are a nice set to own though.

Seller has had 2 offers so far, hopefully around the £60-90 mark

Oh dear, competition authority is now getting involved.

http://www.oft.gov.uk/OFTwork/mergers/Mergers_Cases/2011/805523

It looks like anyone can express their views on this, not just UK nationals. I'll be sending them an email as I prefer having more competition to less.
