Two signatures!
eBay Item #121456494557

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.

Same book, clearly same dealer (under two different names). Two different prices. Bizarre...

With good jacket restoration running at £750 + for significant work the former is not cheap for sure.



I think the problem with restoration is that the general opinion (that I have read online) seems to be that a restored jacket is worth the same (if reversible) or less than the unrestored. Anything beyond very minor restoration is skirting dangerously close to facsimile territory, anyway.

Seems better to just keep the jacket fragments protected for posterity and stick a facsimile jacket on the book to make it look nice in the shelf (or possibly some combination of the two -- with the facsimile behind the genuine jacket, depending on the state of the original).
