someone has obviously made a mistake when inputing the price. i wonder if you paid the £0.80 for the one with the Deluxe ISBN would Amazon honour the purchase?

i see what you mean about the difference in colour of the signature pages on both these books. it does look kind of dodgy, and combined with the lack of provenance and private auctioning as you mentioned , it all seems too risky to bid on.
thanks for your advice, i think i might pass on this one!

hello everyone.

the signature looks genuine to me

I have a 1st Us Ed of the Silmarillion (with good provenance), signed on the title page by Christopher Tolkien in 1987, and it looks exactly like the one on the signed card posted by Deagol.

As for the C. Tolkien signature in the Limited 1998 edition, if you had the task of signing 500 books; would'nt your signature be done very rapidly and scrawl like and be very distorted from your normal signature?
