It is frightening to think that, as time go past these forgeries will become more difficult to identify. How is this piece traceable to the convicted forger?

$300? That seems rather absurd, I'm sure it could probably be procured for much less than that. It is impossible to see the edition on the poster due to the frame. It's really not an issue for me as I can't see reselling it anytime soon.

Picked it up for $5. Haven't had a look online yet to see what it might be worth. I like it as it is the same artwork as found on the first Canadian paperback editions of the trilogy published by Methuen (as opposed to the Remington artwork on the American, Ballantine editions which came out at the same time).

Found this the other day in one of the local thrift shops while trolling for old books - a poster of Middle Earth illustrated by Pauline Baynes.

This guy never fails to disappoint! He needs a thread all on his own.
