Hello all

Just spotted this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Signed-Lord-of-the-Rings-1st-UK-

Recognise the dealer ? - mmmmmmmmmmm i wonder if it could be genuine?

I think we all need ot start reporting these dealers on mass. Maybe then ebay will start listening or maybe I am being too optomistic.

He will be selling Reindeer drawings next!

Hello
Try abebboks.co.uk - they have sets starting from £75
Found one on ebay item number 140370330092 - £109 This seems a little expensive to me - maybe worth contacting the seller or waiting a few weeks until more appear. They are regular on ebay - i'd aim for at least half ish of prices above. Good luck

mmmmmm
Having taken another look it appears that classic art had item listed then removed it (suggest sold item to cavorite privately). Then less than a month later cavorite is trying to resell?

Its odd how a number of these fakes come back to classic art ?
As mentioned before almost every one of his books/art work are signed. That in itself is very odd indeed. A seller to be avoided at all costs i feel. I see the fleming letter is already at £600+ !!!!!!!

More letters! I anticipate we will see more during 2010.

When i pointed it out to this seller he replied- 'Thanks for your opinion'

So long as people keep paying crazy prices for them the forgers will keep producing. Of course people still think they are getting a bargain and so will keep buying them.

Too true re ebay - I cant foresee any changes but worthy of an email for sure just out of principle.
