Seems to be a misplaced photo.

See this other auction listing from the same seller.

Looks like the seller mistakenly added the photo from the above listing to the 1915 Oxford Poetry Listing.

Regards.

Unfortunately, it would appear to be another fake. Here is an auction from the same seller for a Signed Harry Potter Book (with Letter).

http://cgi.ebay.com/Harry-Potter-Gobl ... ZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

From a Feedback Comment back in March, it would seem that the Seller sold another Signed Harry Book, and again with a letter.

"Beautiul Harry Potter 1st edition Book, Pristine Dust Jacket, & author Letter" Mar-25-06 09:24

Caveat Emptor!!

Like you, I did not bid because I was not 100% sure. However I did email the seller about the book. He said the book was inscribed to a P. P. Mroczkowski.

I presume this is Przemyslaw Mroczkowski. I found a bibliographical entry as follows:

"Mroczkowski, Przemyslaw: Dżentelmeni i poeci: Eseje z literatury angielskiej. Kraków: Wydaw. Liter., 1975. 306, [2] pp.
Zł. 45.00.
See the chapter "Uczoność a wyobrażnia w Oksfordzie", pp. 278-307, an essay about C. S. Lewis and Tolkien.
Title in English translation: Gentlemen and Poets: Essays on English Literature. "

But can you ever be 100% sure about a signature. But I must say I was very tempted to bid. I had the feeling that it was all genuine.

The last copy I saw on Ebay (about 6 months ago) sold for almost $350. It was close to Fine.

Hi, I have seen this particular seller list a number of supposed Tolkien Signed Editions over the past couple of years (many signed US Paperback Editions). In my humble opinion, not a real signature. The particular impression of the book listed (4th) was jointly issued by Unwin and Houghton Mifflin (joint imprints in any case) - and the book listed on Ebay has a US$ Price on the Inside Flap of the Dustjacket - So a Houghton Mifflin Edition. I doubt Tolkien signed too many US Editions. Just another piece of evidence making the signature likely not to be genuine. Regards. IMHO.
