Beyond the limit: I wouldn't even call it a forged signature.

I'm curious to see if anybody will buy it. Maybe it's all a joke on the part of the seller, who wishes to ironize on Tolkien Collectors, but I doubt it.

"The book belonged to Tolkien's cousin Seymour Horowitz, who I have been told is currently 95 years old and living in Florida. This book is from his estate, and is a wonderfully signed piece. "

This sounds familiar, I'm pretty sure this book has been up on ebay before or at least the description.

This book has been on E-bay before and commented on in the old Collectors Forum, I am sure it was a Hollywood Estates Book with the usual 'Private Listings'.

However this 'signature' is the most hilarious forgery that I have ever seen for Tolkien and Beren I think you should update your article on signatures to include this one.
