This is unusual.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/J-R-R-Tolki ... ain_0&hash=item51ac5707dd

"J.R.R. Tolkien Signed letter (REPRINT) framed. J.R.R. Tolkie (sic) famous English author of the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings; hand written and signed letter. "

I have emailed the Tolkien Estate to see if the seller has permission to sell this item on ebay. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt, but I suspect not

What a bargain!!! £179 starting price

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/J-R-R-Tolki ... ks_UK&hash=item20d23638d1

"J R R TOLKIEN
THE LORD OF THE RINGS
THE HOBBIT
THE SILMARILLION

Guild Publishing.

All three books in very good condition
No tears or marks to any pages.
No inscriptions."

They did not even try the adage that they are leather-bound.

Concerning the framed letter: I was quickly glancing at newly listed Tolkien items at eBay and saw this sale. After just reading the title, checking the seller's feedback and quickly looking at the photos, I instantly proceeded to make a purchase, suspecting everybody here would soon be trying to get their hands on a rare gem (and that each second therefore was of vital importance). My heart was beating fast (hoping for a lucky find), while something in the back of my head was poking "go back and carefully read the auction details", which to my later great horror said "note: this is a reprint" and that 4 copies were available. Luckily (and kindly) the seller just now refunded my money -- although I would in any case have sent the item back.

And yes, Trotter, this is certainly a case of trying to make money out of Tolkien which would require the Estate's permission (and I doubt they would give permission for something like this).

I think this one will be hanging about for decades, until or if they find a complete idiot to buy it.
