Okay, I've reported it. I think Trotter's previous post (in Tolkien Signature) contains the best advice about how to report. (Counterfeits and copyright violations > Bootlegs and counterfeit media > Counterfeit autographs) In the free type section I merely typed "The signature is a forgery".

Incidentally, Laurel you are responsible for starting all these seperate threads (& discussions)! (This is getting silly!!!!!! & Tolkien Signature)

We should perhaps restrict discussion to the two original (Jlong) threads (including any new eBay listings under suspicion), to avoid all these multiple threads discussing (essentailly) the same thing:

Another Tolkien eBay Letter -for letters
Tolkien Signatures on eBay??? -for any other signatures

I've gone link mad! Off to report all those silly letters...

We may also send your report to the rights owner for review. -eBay

This also seems slightly pointless. Are they going to send all this crap to Christopher, and ask him if he thinks it's genuine?

I have to admit, I don't look at most of this stuff now, so don't get that annoyed by it. But maybe I should start reporting (something I've never done.) It's all (in the long term) damaging for the collecting community.

Maybe, if Trotter's private forum idea is set up, we can have an official discuss (& assuming it's an agreed fake) & report, where everyone makes an effort to report the item/seller; keeping tabs on regular fakers, and petitioning eBay to have their accounts closed (for all it's worth.)

Also Trotter, I think you're right about him not being well (enough) known. (And, his signature genuinely doesn't add significant value to an item.) But others (fakers) may think otherwise. People will have heard of his name associated with the Jackson films, and may believe it worth faking to add value/appeal.

I agree with you Trotter in regard to the private forum. I'm pretty sure I mentioned this to Jeremy before (or intended to). It's also a good way of banding about site management issues e.g. if Jeremy wants help with maintaining the site, or ideas for improvement (not strictly private matters, but you don't need to clog the public site with them.)

In regard to AL, I agree he must have been weary with signing. But, AL's signature always looks very light. And, he more often that not used a fine black pen. This looks like a blue biro.

Jeremy?

Incidentaly, how good is this blog? Not only (already) do we have Wayne & Christina chatting about their collection (& providing nice photographs!), but we have a lovely picture of their beautiful New England home! (H. P. Lovecraft has sold me on NE architecture!)

So many questions remained unanswered reagarding 'The Collection' though. I do hope they are systematically dealt with in various blogs over the coming months & years .

[As keen bibliographers are you particularly fickle about condition? (F/F please!), or will you compromise on condition to gather information? i.e. buy a book in less than 'collectable' condition; do any particular aspects of some items cause particular problems in terms of storage?; how do you deal with preservation? (dj covers, protecting from light [I see a window!], airing shelves, climate control [temperature & humidity], & housekeeping generally); how much 'maintenance' does the collection require? etc etc.]

Great blog!
