The bookplate is very nice - I have one myself, pasted inside a copy of the Methuen edition, bound in blue leather. (Mine has the inscription, in Christopher's hand, 'With gratitude, Christopher Tolkien').

But ths seller's write-up is nonsense. Stating that Christopher and JRR had a bad relationship, and suggesting that CT went ahead and published TS after JRR's death anyway.

It's nothing short of scandalous.

Point taken - nevertheless, if one looks up 'hobbit' on ebay, one finds a terrific amount of sheer tat which has nothing to do with hobbits, or JRR. And that sort of thing gets up my nose.

And guess where they all originate?

Well, Americans (some Americans anyway) seem to think that the word 'hobbit' can mean anything they like! Take a look at this:

That's rotten news - I really like Neil's site. I hope something can be done.
