Eric the Red, here is a copy of The Lost Road (1st, 1st) for $25. Looks like it is in pretty good condition for the price. This volume took me the longest time to secure for a decent price when I was putting my set of American HoMe together.

Does anyone have any idea when the back issues of The Tolkien Collector are going to be available?

I just noticed today that this book is also for sale through Beren's website--Tolkien Library. I guess it must be pretty legit then even though it lacks a provenance.

I wasn't thinking of purchasing it; the "no other provenance known" already makes the item questionable, but it also seemed to me to be rather similar to some of the other sketchy signatures that have been circulating lately--same style and similar blue ink (as Stu notes). I just wanted to post it and see if you guys agreed. If this is, in fact, a fake, should someone contact the seller? What do you guys think?

This one came up on abebooks.com and is sold by The Tolkien Bookshelf. What do you guys think?

Description: A copy of the 1st edition of Gottfried Keller's, 'Werke, Band 3, Der Grune Heinrich, Fragmente Aus Der Ersten Fassung, Dramatische Fragmente'. The significant part of this book is the signature of J.R.R. Tolkien to the front endpaper. Front endpaper has previous owners name and 'The Queens College, Oxford", with the Tolkien signature below. Possibly from a former student of Tolkien's. Appears legitimate, but no other provenance known.
