I got a chuckle out of this "Tollkien" signed book...

This one is quite sad as well.

Unwin Hobbit Paperback with Facisimile Signature

The seller does not believe that this book has a facisimile signature because "(i personally am not convinced as it seems the only people who advise about these books are also the people that sell them for thousands and thousands of dollars!)" i.e. an X-files conspiracy theory to make out that the book is not signed when it is.

Hopefully any potential buyer will read Beren's or Deagol's website and work out that they are talking nonsense or they may notice the same book book from other sellers all described as having a facisimile signature.

These two auctions are pretty funny (though sad, at the same time). The first one (with the name mis-spelled) is a classic, and even comes with a COA! The second one is a shear bargain at 990.00 GBP. I am sold!!

Hmm, a book club edition of Clockwork Orange (he hopes most eBayers don't know what bce means!) for £425.00; a 1st/1st "Canary" Row (or should it be Canary Warf?) starting at £19.99; a signed Pullman for £950.00 (that seems excessive, though Pullman seems to be going up in value with the movie coming out); and then a slew of junky Harry Potter kitsch.

That seller is all over the place!
