Thank you very much for your warm welcome and answers!!! :)

It looks to me that spotting a fascimile dust jacket is pretty hard thing to do for a beginner like me ( especially if a forger tries to make it look older).
As i am starting to build up my own collection I really want to keep and guard Tolkien originals and not get cheated :)
I am already reading how to recognise it on light microscope which I have at home and with magnifying lenses, there are some good articles on the net :)
However, still researching, so wanted to hear from experts :)

First, hello to everybody, new Tolkien collector here :)

A huge fan of Tolkien work, it just had to happen :P

Could you please help me with my first big problem ( and probably stupid question). How can I recognise fascimile dust jacket from the original one? How can I know it is original and not fascimile without looking on the microscope? I would like to collect and preserve some old Tolkien books but I don't want to be cheated.

Thanks to all, and I am glad to join your team :)

Cheers,

Lokki
