And if you think it is the rarest UT edition, have a look at this one:

I've only seen this one a couple of times previously on eBay and fortunately one of the times I won the auction (and at less than this one is currently up for). Incidentally, I bid on this one earlier today and there is someone else that is keen as it went from 36 pounds (if I remember correctly) to sixty-odd pounds before I decided I could live without a second copy! I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up 100+ pounds..

I have got this edition, if this is the one you are referring to:

http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=64400

It is not the rarest Tolkien book ever. That would probably be 'Songs for the Philologists'.

Is the signature typed or hand-written?

Ok, So I am a huge Tolkien fan and at 31 years old I have an impressive collection. I live in the U.K but my Mom's brother lives in California (emigrated in the 80s) he came over for my Nan's funeral and we got Talking, turns out he is a Tolkien fan too and wrote to him in 1973 to which he recieved a reply from Tolkien at the Alan and Unwin offices.
He had asked about more books about hobbits, the reply said there would be no more but a book called the silmarillion was in the works. That is the year tolkien died. I could scan it if any one would like a look. He gave me the letter!
