I know how the limited edition looks like... still i have seen 1st silmarillions with a bookplate by A&U which has the same autograph...

I'd like to see some solid provenance on the book, but I have seen similar signatures on other books. Hoping Deagol (whom I think has at least one signature, and perhaps met Chris) can weigh in.

It looks ok to me - see this signature from 1992 which is definitely genuine:

Open in new window


The signed cards were given out to attendees of a banquet at the 1992 Centenary conference. CT was at the banquet (sadly too many people there for everybody to meet him) and a couple of days before he read 'The New Shadow' (the unfinished sequel to LotR) at the Sheldonian Theatre - Awesome!
