You would have to be mad to want this many copies of one book

Not happy that the I have to list this item, as the seller seems to be very happy to always be in this thread.

By no means a perfect copy, and I'm guessing the inscription is probably embarrassing (It is so annoying that sellers so often mention an inscription and then specifically avoid showing it). Still, might end up being a cheaper copy for someone who simply wants to complete their set.

I got a copy of the inscription for anyone interested in bidding, have seen a lot worse.

Thanks to Lokki and laurel on this ebay item.

When looking at my signed Farmer Giles of Ham by Pauline Diana Baynes, she has signed it as Pauline Diana Baynes, and it is signed in ink.

I am not happy that the ebay item is genuinely signed by Pauline Baynes, and am happy that the auction was stopped.

Deagol, on his excellent site states

"The print run was 2,500 copies.

This edition was issued with two ISBN numbers:

ISBN 9780007286188 - The standard issue.
ISBN 9780007237159 - A limited edition of 500 copies signed by Alan Lee
."

So, were 3000 copies issued, of which 500 were signed by Alan Lee, or 2500 of which 500 were signed by Alan Lee?

I think that it was probably 2500, am I correct?
