Have a look at this very long thread from another part of the forum and you'll see a lot about the problem with forged Tolkien signatures.

If I remember rightly the first post was from a seller called classicart_uk and cavorite51 sells a lot of classicart_uk items.

Well I don't think anyone here is qualified to argue with an Abebooks valuation

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Silmarillion-Tr ... ks_UK&hash=item3caf0dcd45

and of course, I didn't know this but

This book will only ever increase in value. If you take it to a tolkein convention, of which there are many up and down the country each year, you can usually get them signed by Christopher Tolkein, This almost automatically doubles the value.

Ah, yes - Christopher Tolkein. I've seen him doubling the values of many books at the tolkein conventions I've attended, up and down the country.

I have loads of Silmarillion's that Mr Tolkein could sign, does he make house calls when not attending conventions.

Hmm - come to think of it, I have several books signed by Christopher - the real Christopher, that is. Not one of them cost anything like the price being asked here for an unsigned piece!
