does anyone here think that that is JRR's signature? Someone I know is adamant that it is; but I say not.

yes, there's no problem with this as far as I can tell - Michael did use this 'MHRT' monogram.

yapp - A style of binding where the edges of the paper extend beyond all three edges of a book. It is named after a London bookseller who invented it around 1860, and is mostly used for books of devotion and verse"

Oh, okay - I got it wrong.

yes, not a bad price. But - the description says, 'deckle edges' - they're yapp edges, aren't they?

Interesting - but there's a bit of a blooper here - it says

'Based on earlier designs by Tolkien’s son Christopher, the map was extracted from an edition of The Lord of the Rings in the late 1960s, and served as a working document – used by Tolkien and illustrator Pauline Baynes to develop a new poster depicting Middle-earth'

But of course this map isn't 'based on earlier designs by Christopher' - it was removed from Pauline Baynes's copy of TT; this (and the Mordor map in RK were actually drawn by Christopher (who signed 'em with initials), and it was he who'd tidied up his dad's maps for publication.
