I can not find in the article any definitive seller that the 'signed' US ROTK comes from.

Though the article does remind readers to be 'aware of fakes', something everyone here is well aware of.

I'd be a bit concerned about a HM 2nd edition boxed set apparently signed by JRR. I'd need to know a bit about the provenance before parting with any cash; beginning with the likely date the books were printed.

Hello. We are a large antiquarian bookstore based in Cumbria, UK. Over the years, the owner has amassed a large and varied collection of rare Tolkien items, and we have everything from First Edition The Hobbit, to Tolkiens studies on Beowulf dated 1936. Having recently decided to sell all of this collection, it is a fantastic opportunity for collectors and fans alike to own rare Tolkien items, with of course a 10% discount. To save everyone's time, I won't list every item that we have, but request that anyone genuinely interested in purchasing items can contact myself (Claire) at 01228 544560, or at bookcasecarlisle@aol.com Many thanks for reading this.

Last year a rare edition of John James Audubon's "Birds of America," which was first published in the 1820s, sold for $11.5 million. Some of the works of William Shakespeare are estimated to sell for $250,000. The asking price of an autographed L. Frank Baum copy of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" is $110,000 and only recently, in Half Price Books' Cleveland store, a "Lord of the Rings" rare boxed trilogy set signed by J.R.R. Tolkien was valued to sell at around $30,000......




The Tolkien book included an inscription as well. "These are considered true treasures because very few books exist signed by J.R.R. Tolkien," Half Price Books expert Steve Leach said. "A website that specializes in Tolkien sold another boxed set for $9,000 with only the first volume signed. The description noted that Tolkien very rarely wrote anything other than his name. Other signed copies of individual books start at $7,500."

Hi gololo,

I looked at your collection and found it quite informative. In fact, I was astounded to see that there is now a Bengali Hobbit. Thanks for making this info available!
