Thanks, Wellinghall. Oddly, I can find nothing about Bayntuns on the net. It's good to know they're still going.

Those pictures look distorted. Here's a better one -

(sorry - didn't realize the address was so long. It might be betterto go to abe and search for Tolkien and Bayntun)

The signature looks ok to me - if it were not, it certainly isn't one of the latest batch of bad forgeries. I've seen this set beforeI think; years ago. Come to think of it, I'm not sure if Bayntuns are still going. They are(or were) a firm of high repute. Their work is first class.

Here's a link - http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Signed-Lo ... tible?hash=item2eaa65b49c

Apart from the obviously fake signature, it seems this might be a rarity - one of fifty copies of the standard 1961 edition of FotR in a readers Union wrapper. (see the Tolkien Illustrated Bibliography)

I saw that too. Delightful! I love the reindeer. But! - note that the lists are written in >gasp< - Blue Ink!!

Does this cast doubt on their validity?
