Ebay bid number 160026542991 (the auction expired yesterday). What do you think? Is it genuine or fake? I didn't bid because I wasn't sure, because the ebayer only has FB 3, and because he didn't accept Paypal.
Here are some more detailed pics of the book:

Like you, I did not bid because I was not 100% sure. However I did email the seller about the book. He said the book was inscribed to a P. P. Mroczkowski.

I presume this is Przemyslaw Mroczkowski. I found a bibliographical entry as follows:

"Mroczkowski, Przemyslaw: Dżentelmeni i poeci: Eseje z literatury angielskiej. Kraków: Wydaw. Liter., 1975. 306, [2] pp.
Zł. 45.00.
See the chapter "Uczoność a wyobrażnia w Oksfordzie", pp. 278-307, an essay about C. S. Lewis and Tolkien.
Title in English translation: Gentlemen and Poets: Essays on English Literature. "

But can you ever be 100% sure about a signature. But I must say I was very tempted to bid. I had the feeling that it was all genuine.

It looks like our friend Beren got a nice (and relatively inexpensive) signed Tolkien book. Congrats!

Grmbl, seems like I've been overbidden again. Was to expected, as the auction ended when I was at Oxonmoot.
