Absolute rubbish.
The seller changes story when asked about the book. Notice description now changed as well - from having the best day of life to keeping it fairly fluffy and non specific - handy!

Annoying. I wish I'd cut & pasted the original description. Either way I'm pretty sure it said he met him at a book fair (it didn't give any detail) & it was the "best day of my life ever :D", or something like this. It now reads:

The book of lost tales - part of the lord of the rings genre. Is signed Christopher Tolkien on the inside

I find this interesting, and hard to believe... Anyone out there think this is genuine?

It looks ok to me.

"This is a scarce first edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's Farmer Giles of Ham complete with dustwrapper.

The book was published in 1949 and is in overall V.G condition. The dustwrapper has a couple of minor closed tears at the top of the spine.

What makes this book very rare is that it is signed and dated by the illustrator Pauline Diana Baynes.

She has written 'Pauline Diana Baynes 49 on the title page underneath her own printed name.

This must be one of her first signatures as she was only 27 years old in 1949 and this was her first of many commissions for Tolkien's books.

Pauline Baynes,to my knowledge did not do book signings. Her signature is very scarce. I have only seen two other books signed by her
