I'm not as charitable as Mithrennaith when it comes to this seller. I don't think it's a question of someone being asleep. Apart from the fact that all of this vendor's descriptions are this florid, he's also guilty of deception (in my opinion) in that he's getting us in with the promise of a first ed, first printing set in djs, and only tells us of the true facts later.

I bought my own set for £45.00 ; they're in much better nick, too.

On looking up the auction results, I was surprised to see that the picture didn't sell. Does anyone know why?

I think the description is nothing more or less than a shaggy dog story. Nice picture; shame about the forged signature.

I don't think Tolkien would have mis-spelled Rayner Unwin's name - not once, but twice!

The Michael Tolkien book is certainly authentic - I have one or two examples myself. I know the vendor; he's a good honest dealer.
