Not sure why anyone would want a copy of The Hobbit signed by random (in this context) other people...

This is interesting, but also a bit of a "Wonders of" on account of who pays 750 quid for a book based on a single picture of the dustjacket?

Notwithstanding that CT does have a couple of different distinct (but consistent) styles of signatures that he uses, I don't know anyone that can't remember how to sign their own name, and forms the characters and links between characters differently each time they try.

How anyone can think it is OK to sell something like this (with the usual "?" disclaimer about the signature is beyond me). It seems to be standard practice for people to list forgeries and just indemnify themselves by sticking a few question marks in the listing.

I will be VERY surprised if this book actually happens, now.
