I'm quite unhappy about this!

The first one:
This drawing and signature are certainly fake.
If you look at Lee's other drawings, they are much more detailed (and a lot better shaped!).
Also this drawing is 'rough' drawed, with almost no shadows but under his neck. And that shadowy spot isn't the way Lee draws his shadows; he draws them soft and with almost no clear lines in it...

The second one: a very nice example of a genuine drawing and signature

Conclusion: I'd rather have the second one than the first one

They could run off some HC bookplates with numbering, and post them out to us all. I'm sure they still have a log of who ordered first etc, so that the appropriate number could be sent to the correct buyer.


You should apply at HC

That would be a good solution, but I think HC won't do that. They have their money and for them, that's what counts... Unless they are scared they will lose customers because most books on tolkien.co.uk can be buyed at Amazon, except for the 'exclusive' editions.
And I they mainly aim at Tolkien collectors with their website... Most of them know that the exclusive editions can't be bought somewhere else, so if they really want the edition, they will have to buy it at tolkien.co.uk , whatever the customer service may be...

Yesterday, my copy has arrived. It looks very good, and the inside (and outside too of course) is of high quality. The pages are quite strong but make it a bit hard to read though... But I'm not going to read in this one!

There was a cut in the envelope, but no damage was made to the book or slipcase because of that.

As an aside as these must be out of copyright by now, have any digital recordings ever been made of Tolkien from the 78 LPs?


Not that I have found or know of, but I'm not a very long time 'into Tolkien'

I didn't wanted to start a whole new topic on what probably will be a short subject:

I found this on Ebay today, but I have never seen it before.
A 2007 Hobbit, with slipcase. I guess it is a custom made slipcase, but it looks quite good... What do you think?
