The seller ended this listing early because of a forgery in the listing.

On Feb-11-08 at 07:38:52 PST, seller added the following information:

SORRY GUYS, I HAVE JUST BEEN INFORMED THAT J.R.R. TOLKIEN DIED BEFORE THIS BOOK WAS PUBLISHED!!!!!! THIS MUST BE A COPY OF HIS SIGNATURE, PUBLISHED BY THE AUTHOR. I THOUGHT I HAD FOUND A REAL TREASURE AT THAT BOOK SALE WHERE I FOUND THIS BOOK.


Tolkien moved into publishing (his own signature) in the 1980's after finishing (to his own personal bewilderment) The Silmarillion...

After signing this copy, Tolkien might have taken a quick glance at the books Balantine had published, and wondered (amongst other things) when he finished The Silmarillion?; what The Histories of Middle-earth was?; and why he didn't finish those Unfinished Tales before publishing them?...

[Rowns] David Miller; yes, okay, we've heard of him (sure I'd probably noted that particular ebay=seller somewhere!) -thanks for that. [Deagol] Thanks. One of 250 (preceded by the lettered copies of course) very much the 1rst appearance then; with one of 100 the likely 2nd (or 3rd) run.

...indeed a rare mistake by dunedain8.

He he he... even the big guns make mistakes. Incidentally, anyone know who dunedain8 is?; doesn't post here?

Deagol -any firm idea of priority?
