The ebay copy appears to have blue on the upper cover, so I'm inclined to think that the spine is just faded.

When I compiled the page at tolkienbooks.net I was careful to be uncommital about which variants would be the earliest. I think that the clipping of the text on page 234 may well be down to something becoming misaligned during the printing process then being corrected again - so it may not be as simple as 1st state/2nd state. You would need to find a proof or advance reading copy to be sure what the true first state is. Has anybody ever seen one for UT?

The jacket is even more contentious. I am not at all convinced that this is a real variant. I think that it is quite possible that it may be just a result of the fading of the blue ink - even on the front flap.

Does anybody have a copy of Les Aventures de Tom Bombadil? This is the French translation of The Adventures of Tom Bombadil. It reproduces a couple of manuscript pages written by Tolkien giving variant versions of a couple of Elvish verses and an extract from the Council of Elrond.

I am trying to add details of miscellaneous writings and manuscripts by Tolkien to my bibliography and am having a little trouble getting the details of the various editions of this book straight.

Any help would be appreciated.

Looking at the two signatures and inscriptions side by side I am inclined to think that the cureforcancers one is a copy of the David Miller one. The Miller signature looks ok to me.

A dodgy signature from a seller with a history of selling doubtful signatures. They seem to have a suspiciously large range of signatures. I would avoid at all costs. The organisation may have nothing to do with the seller of course.
