Hi, i have a signed copy of the hobbit though i think it is a 4th edition! however, i thought tolkien died in 1973 and the 4th edition would make it 1981?

Also the signiture isnt printed on the book its written on a label with the name forrester and a picture with a lion on top of a shield with je puis written underneath? Does anyone know any information on this as i thought tolkien didnt really sign anything and if he did it would be to family and friends however the edition is after he died?

Can anyone help and does anyone know how much it is worth?

i'm sorry my camera isnt very good, thought he signiture is hand written in ink

If the year is stated and it is after 1973 then it is not JRRT's signature.

If you can tell us a bit more about the book/edition we might be able to give you a rough idea of value. A photo would be helpful!
