Hello all

Just spotted this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Signed-Lord-of-the-Rings-1st-UK-

Recognise the dealer ? - mmmmmmmmmmm i wonder if it could be genuine?

I think we all need ot start reporting these dealers on mass. Maybe then ebay will start listening or maybe I am being too optomistic.

He will be selling Reindeer drawings next!

I'm struggling with this one. I click on the links in your post but they don't work, can you repost the eBay listing again as I can't find the item you are having problems with.

Here's a link - http://cgi.ebay.com/Tolkien-Signed-Lo ... tible?hash=item2eaa65b49c

Apart from the obviously fake signature, it seems this might be a rarity - one of fifty copies of the standard 1961 edition of FotR in a readers Union wrapper. (see the Tolkien Illustrated Bibliography)
