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.

I noticed we had a response from the Tolkien Estate to another post on this forum, I'd really like to see them get involved with stopping this seller from selling anymore 'Tolkien' signed items.
